pair of niobium hooks



Pair of biocompatible niobium hooks in yellow gold tone or silver tone.
Why We Made This:
These niobium hooks are 100% non-allergenic and can be used to replace the hooks on other earrings. 
The entire hook is pure niobium. The niobium is anodized to give it a yellow gold tone. Please note that the color is more yellow than actual gold so it will not match your gold jewelry exactly.

Every purchase helps support the clean water NGO Initiative: Eau


BASE METAL: The base metal for the entire earring and earring back is pure titanium.  

COATING: A titanium nitride PVD coating is applied to the earrings to give it an 18k gold color. The coating is only applied to portions of the earrings that do not touch the ear. Titanium nitride is a hypoallergenic material that is more durable and resistant to wear than gold plating.

CARE: These earrings can be worn in the water and will not tarnish or turn green.

No irritation

I have no idea what Niobium is but it works. No irritation here! I can put all my hoop earring charms on these and wear any style I want. I really like these, and I am very happy with my purchase.

Finally able to wear my earrings

I started having a earring allergy about 4- years ago after menopause, my ears would burn, itch , throb and fester! I found all kinds of wires that claimed they were hypoallergenic finally I settled on a pair of french wired platinum earrings and just never ever took them out. I finally decided to try again and found these niobium wires and they are perfect! I can also wear titatanium but they only sell just the niobium wires. This is great because I can finally wear a drawer full of fun earrings, so I am buying more wires so I dont have to keep taking them off and on my other earrings! Super excited

allowed me to wear earrings of my own

I have used these to replace the hooks on several of my earrings that I cannot normally wear. I literally twisted the other hook out and slipped this in with a needle nose plier and my fingers. It's amazing to wear earrings again and I am ordering more! 100% recommend.

Not irritating-as advertised!

I'm VERY sensitive. In the past, the only earring I could wear was purchased in Denmark, where they have laws against certain materials in jewelry.
And even then, It was a hit or miss and many times I ended up hurting after an hour.
I bought two of these to use with pre-purchased earrings and they do the job! Nothing was irritating or hurting at the end of a 5-hour video shoot.

I wish you could make them in other models to pair with pre-purchased designs (stems with a loop, kidney shape...)
