The best type of metal to wear for people with sensitive ears and want to wear earrings is a hypoallergenic metal. Hypoallergenic metals are metals that are less likely to cause an allergic reaction. Some of the most common hypoallergenic metals include:
- Gold: Gold is a good choice for people with sensitive ears because it is a non-reactive metal. Gold is also available in a variety of karats, so you can choose a piece of jewelry that is both stylish and hypoallergenic.
- Platinum: Platinum is another good choice for people with sensitive ears. Platinum is a precious metal that is known for its durability and luster. It is also non-reactive, making it a good choice for people with sensitive skin.
- Stainless steel: Stainless steel is a non-precious metal that is often used in jewelry because it is strong and durable. It is also hypoallergenic, making it a good choice for people with sensitive ears.
- Titanium: Titanium is a lightweight metal that is often used in medical implants because it is biocompatible. Titanium is also hypoallergenic, making it a good choice for people with sensitive ears.
- Rhodium: Rhodium is a precious metal that is often used to plate other metals, such as gold and silver. It is a non-reactive metal, meaning that it does not react with the skin. This makes it a good choice for people with sensitive ears who are prone to allergic reactions.
If you have sensitive ears, it is important to choose earrings that are made from a hypoallergenic metal. This will help to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction. You should also avoid wearing earrings that are made from nickel, as nickel is a common allergen.
We use nickel-free rhodium and plated gold in most of our inventory because these materials are hypoallergenic, durable, and beautiful. We want our customers to be able to wear our jewelry without worrying about skin irritation or damage.
