These steel & titanium chainmaille earrings are made by hand from small interconnected surgical steel rings. They’re very strong, durable and resistant to water, sweat, chemicals, saltwater, UV….pretty much everything earrings should be resistant to. The hooks too are made of surgical steel, so the material doesn’t cause any problems, even to people with sensitive skin or allergies.
Hooks may be either regular French hooks, or locking hooks.
Coloured variants are made using anodized titanium (Grades 2 and 5). Titanium is hypoallergenic, durable and resistant the same as surgical steel. It’s a bit harder and much more springy. Also it weighs about one third less than surgical steel. Coloured parts aren’t coloured chemically, nor with any type of artificial colouring, but with electricity (the colour depends on the thickness of oxide on the surface, which depends on the voltage used). So colours are a natural attribute of the material and it doesn’t have any negative effects on the skin.
