I tell ya...finally get thru my whole ring re-design mess and use my princess sides stones from the old 3 stone design to make a killer set of 1ctw earrings.

Designer sets them into lovely 14k white gold basket stud earrings. Love them, they are huge in my earlobes with tons of pretty sparklies.

Now, my right ear is all infected. I tried the solution I gave to a previous poster (and one that worked wonders for me in childhood) to no avail. Hydrogen peroxide to disinfect, neosporin day & nite, take out earrings before bed, and I am at a loss.

I have to go downtown tomorrow, and can pop by the designer and have them reset (this project has sucked more $$ out of me) but I was wondering, what metal will not infect my ears? I am not interested in yellow gold, all my jewelry is white gold, platinum, or sterling. Will 18kt white gold be better, or platinum, or do they make titanium posts...I do know I have never had a problem with 10kt, 14kt, or 18kt yellow gold in the past, so why now with the 14kt white?

I am also wondering if anyone remembers hearing anything about plastic earring post "sheaths", or if that''s just wishful thinking on my part turned into a false memory.

Muchas Gracias

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got.... :-P
