Hypoallergenic Earrings from Headcovers
We believe that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice fashion for safety. Our hypoallergenic earrings are for everyone, whether you have an earring allergy or just want to be good to your skin. All of our earrings are made of medical grade surgical steel, which is considered to be higher quality than sterling silver. Often, sterling silver is not actually pure, but mixed with cheaper, toxic metals such as nickel. Up the ante of any outfit without risking your health with a pair of hypoallergenic earrings from Headcovers.
Hypoallergenic Earrings for Sensitive Ears
The word hypoallergenic indicates that a piece of jewelry has been made with materials free of toxins or chemicals that are likely to cause an allergic reaction. Have you ever worn a pair of studs that left your earlobes red and crusty? Those earrings were probably made of cheap materials that irritated your skin.
Our earrings for sensitive ears are especially loved by cancer patients and people with sensitive immune systems. Just because you’re ill doesn’t mean you should stop dressing your best; we know that surrounding yourself with beauty becomes more important than ever when you’re going through a tough time. A pair of hypoallergenic earrings from Headcovers can bring some shimmer and shine back into your life.
Best Hats to Wear with Hypoallergenic Earrings
The key to pairing a hat with earrings is to balance proportions. For example, a wide brim cloche looks smart with a pair of hypoallergenic stud earrings, maybe gemstones or leather diamonds, while an elegant turban goes glamorously with beaded tassels or drop earrings. A newsboy cap is dashing next to hypoallergenic hoop earrings, either small or medium-sized. A good rule of thumb to remember is: if you’re going big with the hat, choose more understated earrings, and vice versa.
Find Hypoallergenic Earrings to Flatter Your Face
Choosing a pair of especially flattering earrings is all about embracing balanced proportions. Generally speaking, aim for an ovular appearance - so if you have a round face, a pair of long earrings with strong vertical lines will elongate your look. For square faces, we recommend dangly ovular earrings, and for rectangular shapes we like short, round styles to draw attention upwards, to your eyes.
Our guide, How to Select Earrings for Your Face Shape, will walk you through this concept in detail. But at the end of the day, choosing the best earrings for sensitive skin is about finding something that tickles your fancy, not about following any particular rule, so your personal preference should always be the bottom line.
Lead & Nickel Free
Our hypoallergenic earrings are always free of lead & nickel, two common culprits in mass market fashion. Since your skin is porous, it will absorb whatever is placed against it. If you’ve ever worn a ring or bracelet that left a green residue behind, then you’ve experienced some of the side effects of toxic jewelry. Over the long term, exposure to nickel and lead can cause illness beneath your skin as well. That’s why Headcovers places a priority on jewelry made of clean materials, so you can shop for your next favorite pair of earrings, worry-free.
