A Quick Guide To Finding the Best Earrings for Girls With Sensitive Ears

Do these ear piercing symptoms sound familiar?

Itching, soreness, swelling, redness, bleeding

You may have chalked these symptoms up to poorly healed ear piercings or sensitive ears.

In reality, these are symptoms of a metal allergy.

When the body is in regular contact with highly reactive metals, it eventually builds up an allergy called contact dermatitis.  Once this allergy develops, any time the body is in contact with that metal, a painful reaction will occur.

When choosing earrings for sensitive ears, whether for yourself or for your child, there are a few things that are important to look for:

Choose earrings made with pure, nonallergenic materials.

Make sure any portion of the earring that is in contact with the skin (including the back) is also made of pure, nonallergenic materials.

Be wary of labels like "hypoallergenic earrings" and "nickel free earrings."  There are many metals, not just nickel, that can cause allergic reactions.  Also, the term "hypoallergenic earrings" is unregulated, and therefore can be used on any pair of earrings, regardless of safety.

What Materials Are Actually Safe for Sensitive Ears?


Titanium is one of the most biocompatible metals in existence (which is why it is used for medical implants).  Make sure the earrings are made with pure titanium, not titanium steel or another alloy.


Niobium is a biocompatible metal that can be anodized to achieve the look of yellow gold jewelry while retaining its nonallergenic properties.

Medical Plastic

Unlike metal, plastic is generally non-reactive with the human body. Look for  medical-grade plastic that can withstand long term wear.





Nonallergenic Starter Stud Earrings. 4mm gold dome stud earrings.

Why We Made This:

These mini dome studs were added to the starter stud collection to add some dimension to your earscape in the second or third hole.


The base metal for the entire earring and earring back is pure titanium.  A titanium nitride PVD coating is applied to the earrings to give it an 18k gold color. The coating is only applied to portions of the earrings that do not touch the ear.

Titanium nitride is a hypoallergenic material that is more durable and resistant to wear than gold plating. These earrings can be worn in the water and will not tarnish or turn green.  However, we do recommend removing your jewelry when showering and exercising to extend the life of the PVD coating.


Base Metal Pure Titanium
Coating Titanium Nitride PVD
Stud Diameter 4mm
Post Length 12mm

    Our earrings have helped thousands of people of all ages start wearing earrings again.  Our motto is 'Happy Ears Only' because we truly believe that everyone should be able to wear earrings comfortably, and we always do our best to give each and every customer a positive experience.

    "Not only are the earrings cute, my daughter can actually wear them for an extended period of time! We have struggled to find earrings that we can actually wear longer than a few hours. She has actually been sleeping with these earrings in and hasn’t had any issues. Tini Lux is the only place we buy earrings from now."

    "Beautiful earrings for my 12 year old
    I bought these for my daughter and they are just beautiful. I was very concerned about getting her earrings that she wouldn't react to and these are great. Simple design, easy to take care of and no allergic reaction! I'll be a regular customer!"

    "Awesome earrings! My daughter’s ears were raw and not healing after having her ears pierced for 10 weeks. I could have guessed this would happen because she has very sensitive skin. I purchased these for her and 1 week later her ears look healed! I don’t use the word “amazing” often....but completely appropriate here."

    "Finally! My daughter just wore the healing studs for 4 weeks and she is thrilled. She didn't know her ears could feel so good. She was ready to give up and never wear earrings. Thank you for creating these earrings"
