I recently spent a weekend in Maine visiting family and while out during the day with my brother and sister I decided I wanted to (finally!) get a second ear lobe piercing. Then when I got to the piercing salon I figured I might as well get a third hole while I was at it.  The earring selection included a variety of surgical steel studs and I chose two that I though would be subtle enough to wear for a few weeks while my piercings healed. The piercing process was easy, quick, and surprisingly not too painful. 

However, after two weeks my piercings were still not healing. During the day I could feel the pressure from the swelling and at night they were too painful to sleep on my side.  I decided to switch out the surgical steel earrings for our starter earrings.  The starter stud earrings are the best earrings for sensitive ears because they are made with 100% pure medical grade titanium. They are manufactured in the US by Patterson Precision, a dental implant manufacturer. They are held to the same material and quality standards as their medical implants.

Within hours of switching to the starter earrings I could feel the pressure go down. The pain continued to decrease over the next 48 hours and by the third night was completely gone.  I did not experience any more bleeding or discharge from piercings after switching to the medical titanium studs.

These are truly healing studs and I am amazed by the difference in my body's reaction to them compared to other materials. I hope that everyone will start to choose biocompatible materials and treat their piercings with the same care as they would a medical implant. I love that they are not only safe but that they come in gold, silver and rose gold so I can match them to my other jewelry and wear them as my everyday stud earrings.

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!
