Body Gems is a family business that was founded in 1994. The Collins family has been in the jewelry business since the mid 1970s. The vision of Body Gems came from Jack Collins who witnessed a line out the door of a local piercing studio in 1994. Jack noticed the type of metal they were using in everyone’s piercings and told his son Scott that they should make all of the basic styles in gold. (Light bulb moment)
Scott went on to make Captive Bead Rings, Straight Barbells, Curved Barbells, and Circular Barbells in 14kt gold. Scott began to provide local studios with gold body jewelry. This was not an easy feat as many studios were not interested in gold at that time for piercings. Scott hit the road, knocked on doors and introduced the Body Gems line in person to hundreds of studios across America for a few years in the 90s. He continued to put his heart and soul into the business into the mid 2000’s. Since the beginning, Body Gems has released about 10 catalogs and now ships “Gold Body Jewelry With Style” all over the world.

Body Circle Designs was founded in 1991 by Tom Finch and Gale Shub, making simple, high-quality, hand-crafted body jewelry for piercers in the Seattle area. The focus was on using only the highest quality surgical steel, simple but beautiful design, and hand-polishing each piece to a flawless mirror finish. Cheap piercing jewelry, poorly made caused too many problems, such as rejection. But quality jewelry was hard to find back then. By working with skilled and experienced piercers such as Fakir, Al D Sowers and Elayne Angel, we perfected the classic styles of body piercing jewelry and developed many new and innovative designs.
Over the past 23 years LeRoi Inc has created and innovated many new trademarked body jewelry designs including The Hybrid Line™, Venus Hoop™, Tres Jolie™, SkullDuggery™ and Skull Factory™, Bijoux™, Haute Couture Bijoux™, and Geometric™ lines. We are one of the only body jewelry manufacturers left who have tailored our operations and product line to accommodate the body piercer’s ever changing piercing requirements including special length, diameter and custom jewelry designs. We have been corporate members and sponsors of the Association of Professional Piercers since 2006.
