Safety Pin Earrings

Being sold by ASOS for $9.50, which wouldn't seem like much for any other earring, but seems outrageously expensive for safety pins. But ASOS says they're "glamorous" safety pins, so maybe they're worth it.

If they are made of surgical steel, it's worth the price. Real safety pins rust in your ears and cause infections.

A few more through the cheek would just about round out the post-punk look.

Glamorous?? Strikes me more like something she grabbed off the dresser to keep the hole from closing up.

Yudith: quite right. I know someone who is allergic (well, irritatingly sensitive) to gold. Gold! And silver, and copper, IIRC. Not so much that she gets ill, but enough that wearing a wedding ring all day long is impossible. Interestingly, she's sensitive to neither platinum nor surgical steel, and the latter is less expensive, so that's what her wedding ring is made of.
