People who have allergy to a particular metal would continue exhibiting allergy to it when it is used subsequently. You can abstain from wearing ear rings for a few weeks and then try again wearing those ear rings to which you have allergy to see if it has resolved, otherwise you would need to wear those golden ear rings all the time. Gold is one of the metals which is least allergic so is titanium therefore these are your options.
