There are so many reasons to check out the chic, women-owned jewelry brand Tini Lux, but for those with sensitive skin, it all comes down to knowing the entire collection of modern jewelry is skin-safe and nickel-free. The brand got its start when founder Jackie Burke got fed up with her inability to find earrings that wouldn’t trigger an allergic reaction — even so-called “hypoallergenic” jewelry caused problems because, as it turns out, the term itself is actually unregulated.

With the belief that “everyone should be able to accessorize without pain,” Burke set out on a mission to create timeless jewelry that anyone can wear with comfort and confidence. Tini Lux mainly uses unalloyed medical-grade titanium as a base metal, which is biocompatible, nonreactive, and incredible durable — making it perfect for all-day wear, day in and day out.

The Tini Lux Collection

The female-led company offers bracelets, rings, and necklaces that are ideal for everything from special occasions to daily wear. Whether it’s dangling cubic zirconia earrings (perfect for accessorizing a bridesmaid dress) or a chain necklace to layer with pendants, you’re sure to find something you can’t do without. Scroll on for a selection of the most gorgeous hypoallergenic favorites from Tini Lux.

These Low-Profile Textured Huggie Earrings That Draw The Eye

A pair of huggie earrings has become a jewelry collection staple, and the Main Sail huggies feature the coolest beaded texture. Should you have multiple piercings, the small, lobe-hugging hoop will easily blend with your other earrings, and the hypoallergenic titanium and titanium nitride PVD coating ensure an irritation-free wearing experience.

Glowing review: “I hadn't worn earrings in almost 10 years due to pain from any material... or so I thought. A coworker suggested medical grade titanium, and so I gave it a try and now I have these ADORABLE hoops that I can wear all the time and not even know they're there. I am thrilled!” - Hadara Kohn
