Irritating ears from cheap earrings

Hi, I have a earring that I like but it's cheap costume jewellery I think so the metal irritates my ear after wearing them.
Someone suggested that I put nail polish on all the parts that make contact with the ear but that only lasted a few days.

I've tried looking for more expensive ones but with a different metal and all I found was stainless steel, does that irritate ears too? In the past I've had 22ct gold and never had problems.

The earring is a plain black stud earring, any suggestions?

Thanks

Sounds like me, I've got a nickel allergy, Some stainless steel contains nickel :(, Trial and error.
