Lovely hoops

I've never worn hoops before, so I was unsure when I ordered these as you also have to put them in through the back. I shouldn't have been worried though, they were really easy to put in and look great. I've previously just been wearing the plastic earrings, so these made a nice change with no irritation.

Couldn't get them in! Ended up twisting them completely out of shape to try and get them in and throwing them in the bin. Waste of money

I'm sorry to hear this style of hoop didn't work for you. Niobium is quite a soft metal which it does bend quite easily. However, there shouldn't usually be any need to bend the earrings, the hoop just threads through from the back of the ear. If you find the gap isn't big enough gently twisting the earring sideways, rather than pulling it open, should make more space without affecting the shape.

They're very pretty and I am not allergic to them, so that's a win-win.

Loved them!

Love these earrings - they're simple, clean lines and not fiddly. Looking forward to trying them in other colors/sizes!

The only problem is that with the 8 mm version, the gap needed to get them on is big enough to see from the front. Then again, they tend to rotate in my ears so that the gap falls exactly along the bottom of my earlobe. I bet I'm the only one who notices.

Easy to wear

No problem to put in and so comfy you can forget you're wearing them. They can catch on things like towels if you're not careful but other than that nice earrings.

good little ear rings
Friday, 20 November 2015  | 

I bought these as I had an infection in my ear piercing that I could not get rid of and cheap gold earrings helped but didn't clear it. These have! My only gripe is that as they are very thin the open end gets caught in my fleeces and I can end up pulling my ear but they are also easy to get off so it's a small problem. They were smaller than I thought but because of the way they get caught in clothes that's actually a good thing.

Metal Allergies
Niobium looks very similar to titanium but is an element rather than an alloy (a mix of metals), it is ideal if you are allergic to nickel, silver or gold.

Like titanium it can be anodised, changing the surface colour of the metal to create a range of colours. Niobium used in a jewellery has to be as pure as possible and is sometimes know as 999 Niobium or 99.9% niobium.
