Metal Allergy Earring Options

If you're one of the many people who have a hard time wearing jewelry due to irritation, you probably have a metal allergy. The metal culprit is usually nickel, which is used as an alloy for many metals. You can read more about metal allergies on my blog.

Some options are:
  • 1) Don't wear your jewelry for extended periods of time
  • 2) Put a few coats of clear nailpolish or Allergy Jewelry Shield to the jewelry that touches your skin
  • 3) Wear 14k gold, medical-grade titanium, or niobium.
It may take some experimenting to see which metals are most comfortable for you.

If you'd like to swap earwires on my designs, email me and I can quote you a price depending on what option you'd like. In the image above, the top row are niobium earwires while the bottom row are 14k gold earwire options.
