Niobium is (unfortunately!) not commonly known metal. There are so many interesting facts about Niobium that make it one of the best metals for earrings for sensitive ears. Read on to learn more about Niobium, the naturally hypoallergenic metal. 

Niobium is a naturally inert metal that is non-reactive with the human body.  Niobium is naturally a blueish color, but it can be anodized in order to give it a gold tone. Niobium jewelry is anodized by placing the metal in a specific solution of soap and water and applying an electrical current.  Unlike typical fashion jewelry, anodized Niobium does not have any plating, coatings or dyes; after the anodization process it is still 100% pure Niobium which means it is still 100% non-allergenic and non-reactive. Since it is a pure metal and not an alloy, it is always nickel free.

Since Niobium is naturally non allergenic, and it's color can be changed without adding any foreign or reactive materials, it is an excellent metal for earrings. Niobium earrings can be worn safely, even by people with a metal allergy, and does not have a plating or coating that will eventually tarnish or wear away.  Niobium is the perfect material for our hypoallergenic tassel 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!
