Say your someone who likes to wear earrings for months at a time but they get nasty (maybe tarnished) what's the best kind to buy gold? nickel free? I don't have a lot to spend but I'd like a good pair of earrings I can just leave in TIA

I wear gold hoops for weeks (maybe months) at a time. I clean them with alcohol every now and again.

I only wear gold, and I tend to leave my earrings in for weeks at a time.

Are these your style? I know you can get them for a better price than what is listed.

I wear nickel free silver. Gold tarnishes on me.

In fact I have a set of nickel free silver hoops that have been in my "80's era, multiple pierced ear" for years.

I'm a nickle-free silver girl too. My newest pair I've worn for 6 months straight. I bought them at Claire's. :blush: My pair is from their sensitive ears line (I think it's the purple label) and I haven't had any reaction with them.

I hardly ever change my earrings. They are silver. I actually bought them at Walmart. They work for me.

I'm really glad you asked this! I need to find some new earrings for DH. He is currently wearing a pair of cheapie studs that he stole from Erin after having bent up one of his good hoops. :unsure: They're looking pretty rough right about now. I'll try looking for some nickel-free ones.

If silver tarnishes on you, but you like the look of it try white gold.

These are the only earrings I have ever been able to wear without trouble. (I think I learned about them here on these boards. :lol: ) They are medical grade titanium and I've worn them for months at a time with no problem. I know they are expensive, but I figured with all the less expensive pairs of earrings I've had to miss out on through the years, I deserved a treat. ;)
