Jewelry Tip: Why your earrings hurt and how to fix this
Do your ears turn red, itchy, or are in pain when you wear earrings? This post is for you! Our video will share:
1) Why your earrings hurt
You are allergic to them! Most inexpensive earrings are made with cheap metals like copper, brass or nickel which can cause reactions in our bodies. Also, DO NOT be fooled by jewelry marketed as "gold-plated," all this means is there is a very thin layer of gold over top a more inexpensive metal.
2) How you can fix this
Try earrings made of a different metal. Look for hypoallergenic materials such as: pure gold, platinum, sterling silver, gold-filled, stainless steel, titanium. All of our earrings, chains, clasps and links are ALWAYS gold-filled. Gold-filled is 5% pure gold, it is the more economical option compared to pure gold.
3) Our Jewelry hack
