How to Choose Earrings for Sensitive Ears
Here are tips on hypoallergenic earring materials and how to select earrings for sensitive ears.
- Hypoallergenic Earrings These work well for most people with sensitive pierced ears. Although hypoallergenic means there is no nickel on the outer surface of the earring’s post, it may be made of coated nickel. Over time the outer surface of the post will wear and the exposed nickel will come into contact with the wearer’s earlobe and cartilage. So if you wear earrings frequently, you need a better, longer term solution to the problem.
- Go for Gold, Silver, Platinum and Titanium Earrings
- Having an allergic reaction to your pierced earrings is mainly only a problem with cheaper jewelry. Noble metals such as gold and silver rarely cause allergic sensitivity reactions. If you can afford it, then choose earrings with solid gold or solid silver posts. Platinum posts are also unlikely to cause any skin reaction, but these are usually even more expensive than gold posts.
Titanium is another metal used for jewelry. It is a cheaper metal than platinum, gold or silver. It costs a little more than nickel, but few people suffer allergic reactions to it.
- Other Options for Fashion Jewelry
Fashion jewelry may only be worn a few times before the wearer changes their look. Many earrings are now made with either surgical steel or plastic posts (rather than gold). The advantage is that this lowers the price of the earrings.
The disadvantage is that steel posts tend to be slightly thicker than a gold earring post would be. In addition, plastic earring posts tend to be slightly flimsy and can break off more easily than a traditional metal post.
- The Nail Enamel Trick
There is another solution that enables you to wear cheap pierced earrings. Before you insert your new earrings into your piercing, paint the posts with a couple of coats of clear nail enamel. Make sure the varnish is fully dry before you wear the earrings. You will need to re-coat the earrings if you wear them more than a couple of times. The nail enamel makes a barrier between the nickel post and your sensitive ear.
