Let me set a scene for you: you’re at the mall with your daughter (or a tattoo parlor!) and she’s getting her ears pierced! You pick out some stainless steel studs, get her sat down, and after a little pinch, voila! Pierced ears. Great! Easy! Right?
Well, sometimes. But sometimes even the stainless steel studs commonly used by children’s piercing shops can cause an allergic reaction. This is because stainless steel contains trace amount of nickel, and nickel is infamous for causing skin irritation. Thus, even stainless steel, which has a reputation for being safe, can still cause a reaction for people with very sensitive skin.
The solution, of course, is to find earrings that are truly hypoallergenic and safe for your daughter’s sensitive ears. At Tini Lux, we’ve got you covered! We use either titanium (the superhero element) or niobium for any part of the earring that touches your skin. These metals are proven to be non-irritating to the human body, and thus are safe for kids to wear. Here are a couple of our favorite kid-friendly earrings.
Our 6mm titanium disk studs in gold are a classic. These earrings are great starter studs because they are cute, light, and lay flat against the earlobe making sleep and play safe and easy. On top of that they are timelessly stylish and will match every outfit!
The 3mm gemstone studs with titanium posts are great for kids who want a little extra sparkle. At just 3mm in diameter, these studs are even smaller and lighter than the titanium disks. You don’t have to worry about these stud earrings irritating your child’s ears or getting snagged during their daily activities.
Your daughter is likely very excited to get her ears pierced for the first time. By choosing hypoallergenic jewelry for your child’s sensitive skin, you can rest easy knowing that these metals will not irritate or interfere with the healing process, making for a great overall piercing experience. As we like to say at Tini Lux: Happy Ears Only!
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!
