If you’re someone whose ears are sensitive to certain jewelry, you’re not alone. This problem is quite common and you can wish that you could wear any pair rivet or rings on the market, rest assured that you are made for the finer things in life, aka nickel-free jewelry. Nickel is a fairly common skin allergen, and it’s also a fairly inexpensive way to make jewelry. Usually, if the price of the jewelry is not expensive, you can believe it contains nickel. This is fine for people who don’t have sensitive ears, but if you want something that doesn’t bother you often, hypoallergenic jewelry is the way to go.
At its core, hypoallergenic jewelry is just a fancy way of saying “this jewelry won’t give you a reaction.” And honestly, it’s a good way to shop. If you have sensitive ears and want to avoid the redness, rash, itchiness and watering that certain types of earrings can cause, we have
ears backside. Check out our favorite hypoallergenic earrings up front.
