i have sensitive ears when it comes to wearing earrings. they will itch, turn red and hurt. even gold and those sensitive silver earrings for some reason dont work but these do. maybe is the silver and they really are sterling and those others werent but whatever it is i have been wearing these since i got them for 3 months only take them out at bed to clean them and still no issues!! yay me! hope this helps
I bought these entirely because of a previous reviewer's claim that these earrings did not irritate her sensitive ears. I also have an extreme allergy to certain metals, and up till now, I was never able to wear a pair of earrings comfortably for more than an hour (by which point my earlobes would be swollen and inflamed, and I'd be clawing at my ears to get the earrings out because my ears hurt so badly). I took a chance on these studs due to the review, and I'm so glad I did! Not only are they GORGEOUS (these CZ's are really luminous and don't look at all fake or junky), but I was able to wear them for 6 hours yesterday and could have slept in them too. They didn't irritate my ears at all. Incredible. I'm so impressed I hopped on this morning to write a review for the benefit of any other sensitive-ears --- hopefully these will work for you too! (I wish Eve's would launch a "sensitive ears" category so it'd be easy to shop for more non-irritating earrings, but until then, I'm going to try assuming that it's the 925 sterling-silver that works, and stay away from anything else)!
