advice on new earring problem
Well, after all the good advice on the bluenile.com thread, I now have some new diamond earrings. Only problem is I can't wear them because they're causing my ears to get inflamed - seems to be the post itself, not the earring or the back. I've never had this problem except with cheap costume jewelry. I've been wearing similar white gold earrings every day for years - no problem. New earrings - major problem within days. Now wearing old earrings - no problem. The jeweler mentioned nickel allergy - I'm not the allergic type. I did some reading though and apparently nickel allergies are common.
Has anyone experienced a problem like this - what did you do? The jeweler is willing to change the setting/post/whatever. I just don't know what to advise them to do since I have no idea what's different about the new earrings vs. the old ones.
Thanks in advance!
