What are the Best Kind of Earrings for Sensitive Ears?

By Jill Burke
When you put in a pair of earrings, the last thing you want is to worry about them causing pain, itching, or otherwise irritating your ears. If this is a common problem for you, you might be wondering, what kind of earrings are best for sensitive ears?
For a TL:DR, the best earrings for sensitive ears are hypoallergenic earrings, titanium earrings, or niobium earrings. But if you'd like to know how we reached that answer, read on.
The discussion here is less about your ears and more about your skin, because that's what exists inside your piercing and that's what the metal of your jewelry is sitting directly up against when you put earrings in. We all know there are many different types of skin, some more sensitive than others, but what often gets overlooked is that skin in general is sensitive, especially when we talk about skin in contact with metal. Nickel allergies are one of the most common allergies on earth, yet nickel is widely used in fashion jewelry as a cheap alternative to more precious metals. So, in order to get around the issue of your ears reacting to the metal in your jewelry, you have to understand that it's not your skin's fault, it's the material of the earrings.
The next question becomes, what types of metals are hypoallergenic? What metals are safe for my sensitive ears? And this is the best part, because this is what Tini Lux is all about. Titanium and Niobium are two metals that are truly hypoallergenic, meaning they do not cause a reaction when they are in contact with the human body. Nickel sits in your ear, reacting to the natural oils of your skin, but Titanium and Niobium do not. This is why they are a popular choice for medical implants. Titanium and Niobium solve problems in the body, they don't cause them.
Next time you find yourself tugging, scratching, or taking out a pair of earrings because they hurt, do yourself a favor and throw them out. Instead, opt for safer options for and choose Titanium earrings or Niobium earrings.
