At every event, I get lots of questions about the types of metals that I use. Ears can be very sensitive, and many people (including myself) find that earrings can make their ears itchy, painful, and gunky. I don't guarantee my earrings to be allergy-free, because I use base metals to keep that awesome $15 price point. That being said, I use gold-plated and silver-plated copper, which many people seem to fair well with. I've had several people tell me that they have sensitive ears, but are able to wear my earrings daily. I have extremely sensitive skin, and have been loving wearing the rose quartz drop earrings, with the rose gold wire.
If you've been wanting a pair of our gemstone studs, but have hesitated to order them, because you don't watch itchy ears, I think you'll find that the gold or silver plated copper will work for you! :-)
