There are many places that you can get new navel rings, as they are pretty much the most popular piercing out there right now. When looking for a new belly ring, make sure that you know the material that the navel ring is made of. If it's not stainless steel, real gold or sterling silver, you could have a reaction to the jewelry. Nickel, tin and other base metals can cause allergic reaction or even infection in fresh piercings. Most stores label their jewelry with the material that they're made of, but if the ring isn't labeled, make sure to ask. If the salesperson doesn't know, you should probably shop somewhere else.
The safest place of all to buy new jewelry for any piercing is a piercing shop itself.
