‘I really liked these earrings so as soon as they arrived I put them into my ear.

‘I didn’t expect astounding quality due to the fact they were only £1.50 in the sale, but as they are a well-known company I didn’t expect them to be dangerous.

‘But as soon as I put the earring in I felt a sharp pain, so slowly pried it back out of my ear.

‘When I did, my ear started to bleeding and it became really painful.

‘I wanted to share my story to raise awareness for others to avoid wearing these earrings, as they caused me a lot of pain which I am still dealing with now – three weeks on.’

‘But even now my ear still feels tender to touch and it’s hard to tell if it has properly healed.

‘I just hope that others don’t have the same experience as me.’

Hannah says she has received an email from Nasty Gal offering her a refund and promising to investigate further, but the firm has so far declined to comment to the press.

Metro.co. has contacted Nasty Gal for comment.
