WHAT MAKES TINI LUX EARRINGS DIFFERENT?
What makes Tini Lux earrings different from every other earring on the market? We designed our earrings specifically for people with sensitive ears and metal allergies.
Our earrings are not only safe, hypoallergenic, and biocompatible, they are also stylish! It is so difficult to find earrings that do not bother sensitive ears, and almost impossible to find ones that are also in style and high-end looking. Tini Lux has solved that problem by creating chic earrings in gold, rose gold, and silver tones that are guaranteed to be safe and comfortable for sensitive ears.
Tini Lux earrings are made with medical grade titanium, an inert metal that does not react with the human body
. Titanium is commonly used in medical implants because it is one of the only metals on earth that can coexist peacefully with the human body
Tini Lux aesthetic is timeless and minimal. Our pieces are on-trend without being trendy, because we believe jewelry should be able to be worn for years and years.
Although titanium is a fairly inexpensive metal, it is very difficult to manufacture. Titanium has a very high melting point, therefore it can only be cold worked, unlike other metals (gold, brass, etc) that can be melted and molded easily. For this reason, it's manufacturing costs are higher and the design options are limited. Because it is difficult to work with, it is very rarely used in fashion jewelry.
At Tini Lux, we have found creative ways to make sure that our earrings are both biocompatible and fashionable.
We use a physical vapor deposit (PVD) method of plating our earrings. This leaves a thicker, more durable coat of gold, rose gold, and silver than other plated fashion jewelry. The result is that as long as our earrings are properly cared for, the plating on our earrings does not fade. In particular, our starter studs which are meant to be worn 24/7 while your piercings heal, can be worn in the shower or while swimming without the plating wearing away. The metal plating is only applied to portions of the earring that do not come in contact with your ear or piercing so that you do not have to worry about irritants or allergens reaching your piercing.
The non-stud portions of our earrings including the hoops, statement earrings, and drop earrings, are made with high quality stainless steel that are plated with gold or silver using the same PVD method mentioned above. We use stainless steel because it is easier to work with than titanium and does not rust or tarnish - which is a great property for fashion jewelry! Because these parts of the earrings do not touch your skin, it is safe to use stainless steel.
The materials that we use (titanium, niobium, gold and silver, stainless steel) will not rust, tarnish, or turn your skin green.
Our customers know that they can wear Tini Lux earrings without any painful reactions. We offers many educational resources about our products, common terminology, and facts about the metals used in jewelry.
We also offer a product guarantee. If you are not satisfied with our product we will take it back, no questions asked within 14 days.
