While not common (or in common usage), a J-bar, is a curved barbell with a more acute curve on the lower end, forming a "J"-like shape. This type of jewelry is most commonly used on navel piercings because it positions a decorative lower bead more appropriately than a standard curved barbell in many cases. Some wearers have also found J-bars to assist in the healing of navel piercings because the shape prohibits some of the back-and-forth movement of a traditional curved barbell.
