Are sterling silver earrings suitable for sensitive ears? The answer to this question depends on a number of factors. They are compatible with women who have sensitive ears if the sterling silver earrings contain a high concentration of pure silver (92.5%) which reduces the likelihood of skin irritation. Equally, their low copper content should not cause a negative reaction.
For women who are extremely sensitive to copper, even sterling silver earrings may not be the best option for them. On the whole, most women with sensitive ears fair well with sterling silver earrings but there are sometimes exceptions to the rule. Latest Sale also offers stainless steel earrings from the Fire Steel collection that are a stylish, accessibly priced alternative to precious metals and are also suitable for jewellery wearers who have sensitive ears.
