What are the best earrings for sensitive skin?

If your favorite pair of earrings is causing you redness, itchiness, irritation, or even bleeding, you are probably asking this question. At Tini Lux we believe that your ears should not have to suffer in the name of accessorizing. In this article we will break down the best earrings for sensitive skin.
The Best Earrings for Sensitive Skin are Hypoallergenic
Hypoallergenic earrings are earrings that do not cause an allergic reaction with the skin. The usual culprit of irritation is nickel, an extremely common allergen that is often used in jewelry. Even gold jewelry, which is often thought of as being hypoallergenic, can contain trace amounts of nickel if it is not pure gold. Allergenic metals and the alloys containing them will irritate your skin if they are present in your jewelry.
The Best Earrings for Sensitive Skin use Titanium or Niobium
When you are looking for earrings that will not cause irritation or an allergic reaction, there are two metals you should look out for: Titanium and Niobium. Titanium and Niobium are non-reactive, biocompatible metals. There is a reason that these are the metals used in medical implants. Titanium and Niobium are able to coexist with the human body without creating a reaction, and that is why they are also the best metals to look for in jewelry. Even if you do not have sensitive skin, these metals are the best choice as they will not break down when in contact with your skin.
In this day and age, we all have more choices about what we put into our bodies, and the earrings you wear fall into this category. If you have sensitive skin and are experiencing discomfort with your current earrings, try giving hypoallergenic earrings a try. Any pair using titanium or niobium will likely solve your problem.

Best earrings for sensitive ears! I haven’t been able to wear any earrings since my kids that didn’t upset my ears. I haven’t had to take these out since I’ve received them. Just when I thought I had to be done wearing earrings because of the pain you came along. Thank you for making me feel pretty!

I'm in love! I haven't been able to wear earrings for a very long time, the last time I wore cheap earrings they practically ruined my piercings because they were so irritated. I love these earrings because I can wear them comfortably and safely, but they look AMAZING.

I had given up on earrings when I decided to try this material and I am so happy I did. They look cute, but most important, no allergies!
