What are the symptoms that you have developed an allergic reaction to your jewelry?
The time span in which symptoms of the allergic reaction come out varies for each individual. The indicators generally manifest from twelve to forty-eight hours of wear, but some highly allergic to nickel can show skin allergies within an hour. The signs include localized redness, itching or burning sensation, dry patches, and inflammation. Sweat adds to the gravity of the allergy that may spread the skin's reaction.
You can use over the counter hydrocortisone cream for mild and localized skin irritation. In some severe cases where regular antihistamines are not enough, physicians prescribe steroids.
Types of metals for sensitive skins:
Pure gold jewelry does not exist, for it is too soft to be constructed into jewelry. Like silver, gold is alloyed with other metals to have a sturdy form. Gold, on its own, is hypoallergenic, but most gold jewelry contains nickel. Make sure that the gold is nickel-free and of high quality.
Sterling Silver (nickel-free)
Not all sterling silver is considered hypoallergenic though silver is non-reactive on its own sterling silver only contains 92.5% of pure silver. This is alloyed with various metals such as zinc, germanium, copper, platinum, or nickel. It really depends on the makers which metals to use.
Platinum is a diamond's counterpart when it comes to metals. Rare, durable, and beautiful belonging to the precious metal category. Platinum is a nickel-free base material sought after for its durability, making it more appealing than traditional gold. Proven not to cause skin irritation, unlike its counterpart, white gold, which contains nickel. As we know, nickel is the culprit why we develop skin irritation.
316L Stainless Steel
Pieces of jewelry made from a medical-grade base are your safest bet when it comes to hypoallergenic materials.
Lightweight, non-reactive, and biocompatible. Another medical-grade metal used in the medical industry is proven safe even when implanted under the skin. If it's safe under the skin, it is so much more worn outside the body.
The most affordable type of material used on earrings for sensitive ears. It may not be as classy and sophisticated in appearance, but its lightweight and hypoallergenic property make it an excellent base, especially for children. They are commonly available in fun, and colorful designs to perfectly complement themed costumes.
Types of earrings
Sometimes called a drop earring because of the minimal difference between the two. Both drop and dangle earrings are long and suspended under the earlobe. They both can sway from side to side. The difference is that a drop earring is adorned with a single crystal drop to be categorized as a drop earring. Dangle earrings, on the other hand, may be furnished with spray or decorative materials and still falls under the dangle earing category, as long as it hangs and sways from one point to another. A drop earring may also have a sturdy and immovable feature like a long bar-like style.
The typed of closure used in dangle and drop earrings are French hooks and stud type of earrings. French hooks are also commonly known as fishhooks, where the hook-like posts are inserted and left hanging on the other end without any clasp or plug.
Some dangling and drop earrings are suspended from a stud earring displaying the same theme.
Front fastening is a type of earring closure made for kids. Usually seen in European countries suitable for children from six years onwards. Characterized by a ring post inserted in a hole located at the front area of the earring.
A classic type of earring with a circular form. Commonly constructed using metal tubes of different thickness and cuts attached to a post. Usually equipped with a spring or French lock clasp.
Spring type closure is operated by pulling the circular body and inserting the rod inside the hoops ring tube body, relying on its circular body's tension.
French lock is a more uncomplicated closure for hook earrings where a fork-like snap built on one end securing a curved or straight post.
Fixed bead type of hoop earrings is furnished with a permanent bead ball end serving as a ball plug, preventing the hoop from moving forward. What is disadvantageous about this type of hoop earring is the possibility of the circle from moving backward. Furthermore, the ball may be stuck inside the pierced hole, particularly for geriatrics who wore heavy earrings in the past.
Captive bead clasp is not as popular as the other types of hoop clasps. The earring is characterized by an open-end circle leaving a small gap in between, just enough for the earlobe's skin to pass through and then secured by a cylindrical bead, also using tension as a lock.
Starter earrings suitable for wear even when sleeping, usually worn on newly pierced ears where earrings must be worn twenty-four hours to keep a hole as the skin repairs itself. Equipped with short posts without any decoration for comfortable wear even while sleeping.
If the hook and stud earring had a baby, it is called the huggie. Characterized by a small and thicker hoop body, worn on the earlobe. A version of an earring resembling a huggie is worn on the outer ear called an ear cuff. Usually built with hinged snap closure making it possible to stretch the body open like a mouth and closing easily secured with a snap. Another not so common type of closure used in huggies is called omega clips. This resembles a lever back, except the backing has a more extensive and broader clip like feature (seen on clip on earrings) where the post is inserted. This type of closer gives a more secure hold.
The history of stud earring goes way back in the Asian region where men wore them as a form of birthright, displaying a prominent society's prominent status. Studs are the most practical among all the types of earrings for it is light and small features. It is elegant and chic contained in a tiny yet powerful package.
Studs are also the most accessible type to pair with other forms of jewelry, like a necklace. Donned on almost the same region, this duo can create a wondrous appearance when worn correctly.
A new and modern type of earring giving an illusion of multiple ear piercings. As the term connotes, the earring appears to climb up from the earlobe. This is best for individuals with a single piercing to experience how it will look like having multiple ear piercing. Ear climbers are built with an elongated hook. It is worn by inserting the hook through your piercing and rotating it upward, gripping the skin on your ear to secure it in place.
These give a high fashion look, especially when worn only on one ear.
A type of earring where the piercing is not needed. Worn on the outer segment of the ear, hugging the folds creating a pierce illusion. Commonly available in thin or thick forms (depending on the ear area worn), giving a hip and fresh look together with other types of earrings. Being a non-piercing earring, its only downside is that it may feel uncomfortable at a time, particularly when not donned in the proper way. It may feel too tight or loose that it may fall off entirely. The trick is to locate the thinnest skin on your ear to slip the earring and gently slip down to the area where it sits both comfortably and securely.
Another form of modern earrings that looks similar to a barbell. Characterized by a bead ball on each end having one detachable ball as closure. These are used in various body piercing types like ear, tongue, nose, and the private area. Other forms of barbells are curved, circular, and surface barbells.
Plugs / Flesh Tunnels
An ancient form of ear accessory that is not as commonly worn today. The large hole that it creates is why some people choose it, while it is a definite no for others. Ancient earplug and skin stretching were seen dating back from 3300BC, where a frozen body was found in the alps of Italy having multiple tattoos and stretched ears measuring up to seven millimeters in size.
Incan, Mayan, and Aztec men start wearing earplugs at the young age of twelve to show a wealthy status. African tribes such as the Maasai, Fulani, and others also practice skin stretching up to this time.
Hypoallergenic materials do not necessarily mean it is safe for everyone to wear. Some labeled as hypoallergenic can still cause skin allergies. It may root in the quality of the material used for up to this moment, there are no known set standards on what constitutes a hypoallergenic base. Furthermore, each individual reacts to metals differently. The best thing to find out which element you are allergic to is by taking a test done by a professional physician and dermatologist.
