Our Philosophy

There are no tricks or hidden agendas here. Our philosophy? Total transparency. We know sensitive ears are caused by metal allergies (also known as contact dermatitis). We want to give you ALL of the information you need to make an educated purchase.

There are only two metals we ever make our earrings with:

1. ASTM F-36: Pure, unalloyed titanium. This is the safest metal for sensitive ears because it is the least likely to cause a reaction. We use this for almost all of our earrings.

2. ASTM F-167: Implant grade titanium. This is an biocompatible alloy. We use this for some of our flat back studs.

About Our Products:

  • Allergen Free. We choose to use metals that have been studied and are known to be safe for the human body.
  • Safe for Sensitive Ears. Made with non-allergenic metals that will not trigger a reaction.
  • Pure > Mixed. We use pure metals rather than alloys. The more pure a product is, the easier it is to avoid allergens.
  • Lab Tested. Used to independently confirm the purity & metal composition of our earrings.
  • Cruelty Free. No animal testing ever.
  • Sustainable. Titanium is self cleaning and does not rust which makes it 100% recyclable. 

Jewelry is a universal form of expression. We wear jewelry to feel confident, stylish, and powerful. At Tini Lux, we want everyone to enjoy accessorizing without pain.
