Jewelry gets awfully expensive when you have metal allergies. Trust me. Costume jewelry is rarely an option, so I usually don’t even give it a second look. However, much to my surprise my new favorite pair of stud earrings are inexpensive and hypoallergenic!
Origami Owl Clara Stud Earrings are nickel and lead-free and made with surgical steel posts. Best part? They cost only $20. $20! I have never been able to wear a $20 pair of earrings in my life. Which begs the question…why isn’t all costume jewelry surgical steel? I was initially nervous to try them because my ears can detect base-metals, nickle and the like within about a half hour. Well I have been wearing them for about a month now with no problems (no irritation or green lobes). In fact, I have only taken them off to sleep! Besides the clear version pictured above, Clara studs are also available in a version with rose colored Swarovski crystals and dark grey Swarovski crystals. Heck for $60 own all three pairs! Or try the Sophia Studs which are essentially the same, but with a pave halo for $28.
