If you have sensitive skin or a skin allergy, you are not alone! Almost 50% of the population with pierced ears have a sensitivity to the metals used in jewelry today. As a result of their skin sensitivity or skin allergy, sometimes referred to as allergic contact dermatitis, consumers often purchase expensive jewelry made from 10K, 12K, 14K, or 18K gold. However, even the expensive earrings use nickel alloys in their gold.

What about hypoallergenic earrings for sensitive ears?

Surprisingly, hypoallergenic earrings can irritate sensitive ears. Most of these hypoallergenic earrings for sensitive ears are made from stainless steel - not "surgical" steel. Stainless steel in the hypoallergenic earrings can release minute amounts of nickel from the steel to irritate sensitive ears or trigger a skin allergy reaction. Even expensive 12K and 14K posts are still a problem for people with sensitive skin or allergies. Jewelry labeled 14K gold is 58% gold and 42% alloys - alloys, including nickel, that can irritate sensitive ears. Therefore, you want to narrow your search to surgical steel earrings, the only kind sold here.
