Surgical Steel is a surgical grade stainless steel that contains a very small amount of nickel as compared to other metal alloys typically used in jewelry. Surgical Steel is utilized in body piercings and surgical devices. For people with sensitive ears, this can be an affordable solution to wearing earrings that will not be irritating and can work when gold and/or silver do not. Most Surgical Steel earrings available are of a more "alternative" style, so it is our mission to provide pretty options for those of us with metal sensitivities.
Our Titanium is commercially pure grade and is 100% hypo-allergenic and does not contain any nickel. This is offered as an option for those with severe metal sensitivities and/or nickel allergies. Titanium is more expensive than Surgical Steel but less expensive than Niobium.
Niobium is 100% hypo-allergenic and does not contain any nickel. Niobium is not a metal alloy; it is a pure element. This is offered as an option for those with severe nickel allergies and/or metal sensitivities. Due to the nature and demand of the material, the cost for Niobium earrings is higher than for the Surgical Steel earrings.
Whichever material you choose, you have 15 days to try them out to see how they work for you. Please send me an email or fill in the Contact Form to submit any questions / comments / requests.
