Niobium is a nickel-free inert metal. It is very resistant to corrosion and other reactions, and is used in medical implants. Niobium is not plated or painted, so will not flake or chip. It is anodized, meaning it is colored by dipping it into an electrically charged "bath." Because it contains no nickel, lead, or other additives, most people with metal allergies can safely wear niobium.
Niobium Colors will vary: Colors from different batches, especially teal, may not exactly match. Teal ear wires and teal jump rings will look nice together, but are almost guaranteed to be different shades.

I work in oxidized copper and ceramic clay so my ear wires need to be complementary to my other materials. These niobium wires are ideal and give my purchasers a pair of hypo-allergenic wires they can wear in comfort!

I have very sensitive ears, and the Niobium TierraCast Ear Wire was absolutely the perfect solution for earrings. They never bothered my ears and looked great at the same time. I highly recommend going with these earrings!
