The Big Idea
After wearing the same boring pieces of body jewellery for 15 years, my fabulous husband wanted to buy me earrings for Christmas 2016 that reflect my love of colour and sparkle.
- Is this going to cause a reaction?
- Is this really hypoallergenic?
- What is titanium?
- What the heck is titanium steel??? (fyi, it’s another name for stainless steel, which with a 12% Nickel content, it’s no good for sensitive ears like mine.)
With his product design background and love of problem solving, he set out to find the answer. In the course of his researching, he found that around 15 % of the population have the same issue. The BIG IDEA was born!
We are committed to selling only truly hypoallergenic jewellery, that is safe and comfortable for over 99% of the world to wear day in day out with no issues. To achieve this, we work closely with a small number of suppliers to ensure highest grades of purity in our titanium and assay test regularly to ensure our standards remain super high. We offer a no hassle returns policy if you ever do run into issues, so that you can give, gift, and receive with total piece of mind.
