These are simple niobium hoop earrings with an important difference. I have created the top to be straight like a post, and the body of the hoop is oval rather than completely round. Niobium is allergy safe and will never cause your skin to break out. The natural color of niobium is steel gray, or you can pick a color from the drop-down menu.
The shape of these unique earrings does three important things - the straight top fits neatly into your piercing, so it is appropriate even for very new piercings. Using an oval shape rather than a truly round shape keeps it from bumping your neck. I have even used the smaller size for sleeping in and have found them to be completely comfortable! In addition, you can always find the "top" easily, and this keeps them from spinning around in your piercing the way round hoops sometimes can.
I will create your earrings at the time you place your order. My usual size for these is about 3/4 inch long by 1/2 inch wide. Since I make these by hand, I have a flexibility on size, so can make them a little bigger or smaller if you just ask.

**Did you know that it is recommended that you wear post earrings (at least for normal wear) for about the first 4-6 months after a new piercing?

I make each item by hand, with care, using entirely nickel-free materials. Your jewelry should never cause you pain, or irritate your skin. If you continue to irritate your nickel allergy, your allergic reactions will become more severe over time. Nickel allergies can appear at any age and last a lifetime, so everyone can benefit from choosing nickel-free jewelry. If you have additional questions for me, please do not hesitate to ask. 1030H
