In brief: Can cause problems !
Nipple Piercings have led to cellulitis & abscesses.
The jewelry can snag against clothing with potential of traumatic tears to the nipple. Additionally, scar tissue on the nipple or jewelry can block a milk duck & in some cases make it more difficult to latch during breastfeeding.

In brief: Probably not
Nipple rings can destroy some of the ducts, so they may not be able to let some of the milk flow out.
This can be painful for a few days as the glands build up milk and then have to resorb it. The remaining functional glands will make up the slack, though.
