Heidi Daus Metal Question
Will Heidi’s earrings work for people sensitive to metals???
Are the sterling silver/hypo allergenic posts?
Can anyone tell me what kind of metal the earring posts,as well as her jeweley are made of?
I see nothing listed in the specifics of the items.
Happy Anniversary Heidi!
@hairgypsy, I’m not sure of the metal. I’m sensitive too and usually only wear gold but there are certain silver pieces and costume that I can wear. I can wear Heidi and RJ Graziano without problems but usually for about 6 hours. I hope this helps. I would try to contact Heidi’s company to find out the metal content. I’m sure customer service could assist you with the address or phone contact information. If there is something you love, just give it a try. If it doesn’t work, HSN is great about returns. Good luck and I hope this helps!
I can’t say what kind of metal Heidi uses for posts but I know it’s not sterling silver. I have a nickel allergy and I can wear most of Heidi’s earrings with the exception of a few. I had a horrible reaction to Heidi’s Chic Simplicity and Newport Chic earrings. Because of my nickel allergy, when I buy Heidi’s earrings, as soon as they arrive I clean the posts with an alcohol pad and try them on. If there is any tingling, burning or redness, back they go. I wish Heidi told us more about the metal content. It’s important info for those of us with a metal allergy.
Thank you southernlights55. I would like to get the TSV matching earrings for the TSV necklaces I got for my Mom and me.
We have serve nickel reactions. I may get a pair for each of us and see what happens.
Thank you for the “prep before wear”tricks. I have already placed neosporin ointment or cream on posts before wearing that were not hypoallergenic. Sometimes it worked,sometimes not.
@hairgypsy and @southernlights, those are great prep tricks and will help others with these issues. I’m allergic to neosporin. One thing that I keep in mind in case I can’t wear the earrings is to buy something with either pearls or has a color that I can pair with my natural gemstone earrings; then if Heidi’s earrings don’t work out, you can still wear the necklace. I’m hoping the tanzanite in the TS will work out with natural tanzanite gemstone studs in case the earrings are too heavy for me.
There is a product sold at jewelers that you apply to the post. It creates a barrier for those like us with a nickel allergy. After spending $15 for a tiny bottle I found out it’s clear nail polish 😂. Yes, it works but I stopped using it because I didn’t like the thought of nail polish chemicals in my body. I have over a hundred pairs of Heidi’s earrings and i’ve only had a problem with a few. Hope the TS earrings are nickel free. Also, not sure if you like Joan Boyce but her jewelry is nickel free. Enjoy your new Heidi goodies!
