Your Fake Earrings Q&A Answered
Q. Are fake earrings bad for your ears?
First of all it’s important to define fake.
Fake earrings made of non-sensitive metals can be harmful to ears for sure.

Q. Why do my ears hurt when I wear fake earrings?
While we aren’t doctors there are often two common things going on when it comes to ear pain from wearing fake earrings.
Either a) the fake earrings are bad for your ears because they are made of cheap materials that heighten sensitivity to the tissue around your earlobe.
Or b) the fake earrings that offer more than one earring on the same set (such as faux double hoop earring sets) are too heavy for your delicate lobes.
In the case of the first option, be assured none of our double earrings or fake double ear piercing earring sets will aggravate ears as they are made of the highest quality a-grade solid sterling silver and gold that is both nickel and alloy free.
