  • if you love the earrings you could always have the post redipped. it wouldn't cost much for such a tiny area.

  • sounds like false advertisement on their part. if it hurts your ears i wouldnt wear them wo asking somebody what you should do in the dr field.cause you dont want ur ears to get infected from wearing them.there might be some kinda spray you can buy for the earing im not bet is to ask a jewely expert .i think.good luck!

  • I would just be honest about it . . . . so that he knows what kind of material is okay for your ears on future purchases.

  • he doesn't mind if I dont wear them, when he bought them on ETSY he was told they were for sensitive ears but I dont think they were, my question is more about can I do anything to the earrings to stop them from messing up my ears..

  • ya I emailed her but no reply, they cost like 8 euro so not worried bout the money. Just checking on line to see if their is anything I can do. Ive worn cheap earrings before and not have had this problem so I dunno what makes these so different.

  • they were probably just plated and the plating came off (happens a lot with earrings)..
    i know with rings you can use clear nail polish when this happens but i don't recommend it for earrings. I know some places you can get plastic slip covers for them or addtional plating, but I'm not sure where.
