Best Type of Earrings to Buy for Sensitive Ears
Believe me, I too had a hard time every time selecting the earrings, but with time I got to know a lot of things how to cope with the problems of ear sensitivity.
And, through this post, I would like to put forth my knowledge and practical experiences I have buying earrings for my sensitive ears.
What are the Best Materials For Sensitive Ears?
You must keep in mind that not every kind of these metals that I'm going to mention are hypoallergenic.
The safest way to recognize the right material before purchasing is the tag of "hypoallergenic" on the product or product page.
Best type of earrings to buy for sensitive ears are:
- Pure Silver
- High-Karat Gold
I'm going to open up some of them for you today.
I may write about the others if you ask me in the comment section.
Let's see why and how to pick the best type of earrings sensitive ears.
Pure Silver Earrings
If you leverage me to suggest one earring material perfect for someone with sensitive ears, then pure silver earrings are an easy choice.
Do you know silver is hypoallergenic?
I come to know about this from my family jeweler when I was selecting earrings for my sister’s big day.
The silver material feels soft to the ear, that’s why they are the best type of earrings for sensitive ears.
Keep in mind that not every kind of silver jewelry is hypoallergenic.
925 silver means 92.5% is silver and 7.5% other materials.
Companies may use cheap material for the 7.5%
However hypoallergenic silver earrings usually use pure copper or zinc which is safe.
I have also tried the Titanium earrings.
This material is also hypoallergenic, it never causes allergies, that my experience for the last six months.
Another perk of the Titanium Earrings is that they are lighter and far more comfortable to wear in comparison to the other materials.
If you don’t want to spend big money on precious metals, then I would say plastic earrings are the best type of earrings for sensitive ears.
Apart from being durable, the plastic is not a metal, therefore there are no chances of developing allergies.
But, the major drawback associated with these earrings is that they often looked cheap.
Additionally, don’t look attractive for special occasions.
This probably hasn’t crossed your mind when searching for earrings, but wood earrings are worth a try.
The wood material didn’t have any effect on my ear piercings, and they are not known to causes allergies.
Nowadays, the market is flooded with so many options when it comes to wooden earrings.
High-Karat Gold Earrings
Gold is easily one of the best picks for ladies having the skin sensitivity problem if you ask your jeweler; he/she will too suggest the same.
But, be careful, 14k and lower karat gold has higher chances of causing metal allergies.
Make sure that it doesn't contain nickel.
Otherwise it's great.
What're The Worst Type of Earrings for Sensitive Ears
Lastly, note Nickel & Plated Alloys are the worst options if you have sensitive ears.
