A common question asked of pediatricians is, “What is the best metal for hypoallergenic jewelry?” The best material is no metal at all. Medical grade plastic is the best material for first-time piercings in both toddlers and adults. It’s also the right choice for those who suffer from earring allergies.
The Centers for Disease Control estimates that up to 20 percent of the population has an allergic reaction to nickel, one of the most common metals found in jewelry. An allergic reaction to jewelry is contact dermatitis. It is a red, itchy rash that can even form blisters.
Even if you don’t think you or your babies have sensitive ears, why take that chance?
Why Consider Wearing Medical Plastic Earrings?
Chances are, you could have an allergic reaction to nickel, gold or chrome. There are over 700 million people who suffer skin allergies to these common jewelry metals. Parent Magazine listed nickel as the number one irritant for babies and children.
Medical grade plastic is a fantastic solution for kid’s earrings and the right choice for jewelry for sensitive ears. Why? Medical grade plastic is tough. It can stand up to rough and tumble play. It is durable so that the stones will not pop out as with cheap plastics.
Although you’ll need to clean any new piercing to prevent infection, medical grade plastic earrings won’t harbor germs like cheap plastics can.
Jewelry for sensitive ears goes beyond toddlers and kids. Adults can benefit from plastic earrings too. They offer subtle accents and colors that look elegant.
Safe and Stylish Plastic Earrings Are Hard To Find
Finding plastic earrings is easy. However, they are typically a hard, brittle type of plastic. They have the potential to crack and create a sharp edge accidentally. Medical grade-plastic is hard and virtually indestructible as a stud earring.
The best place to get these earrings is to order from Blomdahl USA. We have the largest selection of medical grade plastic earrings for kids or adults in North America. Often, bargain jewelry uses inexpensive glass that looks fake even from a distance. Our earrings feature the best Swarovski Crystals to add sparkle and brilliance that imitation stones can’t match.
A reputable brand, Blomdahl USA offers these high-quality earrings:
- Medical Plastic Dangle earrings feature two stones, a Swarovski crystal in a 4mm setting and a Swarovski heart in a 6mm setting. Three color choices.

Best Choices For Young Children
For young children, consider post earrings. They are the best choice because they won’t catch on stray hairs and will stay in place better than dangle-type earrings. Our collection includes kid-favorite designs such as daisies, hearts, butterflies, and stars.
Blomdahl develops all our jewelry in cooperation with leading skin specialists and pediatricians.
