A circular barbell is a common variation of the straight Barbell. It is bent fully into the shape of a ring, with one or both ends threaded to accept a bead.

This jewelry design is also sometimes called a "three quarter bar" (because it is about three quarters of a circle).

Alternative Names

Horseshoe Barbell
While no longer a common style of jewelry, in the early 1990s, horseshoe barbells were more literally horseshoe shaped (like a circular barbell where the end segments are straight) as seen in the image above.
