Tini Lux was founded by Jacqueline Burke. Her background is in Systems Engineering, but she was frustrated with the existing fashion earrings and saw that she was not alone. She launched Tini Lux in 2017. Here is her story:
Years ago I had given up on wearing earrings because every pair (even those labeled “nickel free” and “hypoallergenic”) almost instantaneously caused a painful reaction, swelling, and bleeding. Through a lot of research I discovered that the cause of the issue was a contact allergy to metal that had developed from years of wearing earrings made with reactive metals.
Eventually I discovered that there are two metals that exist that are inert and non-reactive with the body: titanium and niobium. I was disappointed to find that I could not find a single pair of titanium or niobium earrings that fit my style. Everything on the market was either very industrial looking or very homemade looking. I wanted fun, minimal, and statement earrings in gold and rose gold.
At that point I decided to take matters into my own hands and design my own line. From there Tini Lux was born.
The mission of Tini Lux is to create high end fashion earrings that are specially designed for sensitive ears.
The name Tini Lux comes from the earrings themselves: they are made with Titanium and Niobium in luxury styles. Titanium and Niobium are special because they are two of the only metals that do not react with the human body.
We believe fashion jewelry should not only be stylish but also functional. What use is a cute pair of earrings if it causes itching and irritation after a few minutes? Jewelry should coexist peacefully with the human body, be fun to wear, and affordable.
