All of our jewellery is 100% hypoallergenic and made of commercially pure titanium. So if you are one of many who are unfortunate enough to suffer from a metal allergy, this guide is for you.
Allergic skin reactions to costume jewellery and even precious metals are actually very common, but fortunately this is not something we have to tolerate. There is a solution.
Titanium is a biocompatible metal, also known as hypoallergenic which means that it is less likely to cause a reaction. Just to be absolutely clear, it is not guaranteed to be 100% effective for everyone, but it is the safest metal available, and it’s even used in the human body to replace bones.
If you’re trying titanium for the first time, you could begin cautiously with something very lightweight and comfortable to wear at all times. We recommend Titanium Ball Studs which are available in two sizes; 5mm and 3mm. The titanium pins are approximately 12mm long and have been paired with a unique titanium butterfly to give the perfect hypoallergenic solution to ball stud earrings. We offer a range of stunning colours which are achieved through a process called oxidisation. Colour does not affect the hypoallergenic qualities of the item. The colours are a natural oxide layer achieved by passing an electric voltage through the jewellery. This is a process done by hand. Each piece is then cleaned in water. So the colouring is not a coating or additional layer, unlike a plating. Each colour is as hypoallergenic as the next. To revitalise colour over time, simply wash with warm soapy water and try with kitchen towel.
If you know that you have severe reactions to metal coming into contact with your skin, you may wish to try a larger piece away from the ear such as a titanium chain or bracelet. We offer a Skin Friendly Guarantee where we will issue a full refund to you if it’s not working out for any reason. This gives our customers absolute peace of mind, taking the worry out of trying titanium for the first time, or any time for that matter.
The best time to try a new piece of jewellery is now. As a small manufacturer, we keep some items in stock but usually make each piece up when the order comes in. By creating each piece especially for you, the quality of our product is superior to offshore manufacturers and the service is exemplary.
After years of avoiding jewellery, swapping to titanium has allowed some of our customers to be able to wear jewellery again. By trying titanium jewellery you could benefit from wearing one of the most comfortable and practical metals in the world.
