With all the different earring options out there, it is surprisingly hard to find earrings that work for sensitive ears. Having sensitive ears means that your ears are prone to irritation, redness, and itching when wearing certain types of earrings. This can be caused by things like nickel allergies, metal sensitivities, or even the shape and size of the earring. However, clip on earrings could be a good option that will not only look great but also be comfortable to wear.
The first step in finding earrings for sensitive ears is to identify the cause of your sensitivity. If you suspect that you have a nickel allergy, you'll want to look for earrings that are made of nickel-free materials. Some popular options include stainless steel, titanium, and gold.

Another factor to consider is the shape and size of the earring. If you have sensitive ears, you'll want to avoid earrings that are too heavy, as this can cause discomfort and stretching of the earlobe. Additionally, you'll want to avoid earrings that are too long or dangle too much, as these can also cause irritation.
You can always opt for our lightweight closures and styles, such as:

When shopping for earrings, it's also important to pay attention to the earring closures. It is a balance between having the secure hold without being too tight to cause irritation. Our clip on earrings with resin backing or mosquito coil are both great lightweight options.

If you're not sure what type of earring is best for you, it may be helpful to try a variety of different materials, shapes, and sizes to see what works best. You can also talk to your doctor or a dermatologist to get a professional opinion if you are not sure if it's is a metal sensitivity.
Having sensitive ears doesn't mean you have to give up on wearing earrings. With clip on earrings, you can have jewelry that look great and are comfortable to wear. With the right clip on earrings, you can look great and feel great, too!
