What Earrings are Safe for my Daughter’s Sensitive Ears?

What Earrings are Safe for my Daughter’s Sensitive Ears?

Let me set a scene for you: you’re at the mall with your daughter (or a tattoo parlor!) and she’s getting her ears pierced! You pick out some stainless steel studs, get her sat down, and after a little pinch, voila! Pierced ears. Great! Easy! Right?
Well, sometimes. In some cases, even the stainless steel studs commonly used by children’s piercing shops can cause an allergic reaction. This is because stainless steel contains trace amount of nickel, and nickel is infamous for causing skin irritation. Thus, even stainless steel, which has a reputation for being safe, can still cause a reaction for people with very sensitive skin.
The solution, of course, is to find earrings that are truly hypoallergenic and safe for your daughter’s sensitive ears. At Tini Lux, we’ve got you covered! We use either titanium (the superhero element) or niobium for any part of the earring that touches your skin. These metals are proven to be non-irritating to the human body, and thus are safe for kids to wear. Here are a couple of our favorite kid-friendly hypoallergenic starter earrings.

Titanium Earrings for Kids

6mm Starter Studs
Our 6mm titanium disk studs in gold are a classic. These earrings are great starter studs because they are cute, light, and lay flat against the earlobe making sleep and play safe and easy. They are the perfect stud earrings for sensitive ears and the perfect earrings for newly pierced ears. On top of that they are timelessly stylish and will match every outfit!
3mm Gemstone Studs
The 3mm gemstone studs with titanium posts are great for kids who want a little extra sparkle. At just 3mm in diameter, these studs are even smaller and lighter than the titanium disks. You don’t have to worry about these stud earrings irritating your child’s ears or getting snagged during their daily activities.
Note: We are currently sold out of our 3mm gemstone studs buy stay tuned for the release of our Little Lux Collection, coming soon! 
Another great option for first time piercers are our hypoallergenic dome studs. The 4mm mini dome studs are simple yet stylish enough for your trendsetting daughter. Like the gemstone and disc studs, our mini dome studs can be worn during daily activities and worn as sleeper studs.  
Your daughter is likely very excited to get her ears pierced for the first time. By choosing hypoallergenic jewelry for your child’s sensitive skin, you can rest easy knowing that these metals will not irritate or interfere with the healing process, making for a great overall piercing experience. As we like to say at Tini Lux: Happy Ears Only!
