What jewelry should you choose with skin sensitivity?
If earrings make your earlobes itch or your necklace leaves a rash around your neck, you may be allergic to nickel.
Nickel is used in the manufacture of precious metal alloys and in the base metal of costume jewelry which is then plated with gold or silver.
❗️Nickel allergies can develop at any age!
If you are allergic to nickel make sure your jewelry is made of:
✔surgical stainless steel (304 and 316 grade)
✔14, 18 or 24 karat yellow gold
✔pure sterling silver, copper, platinum, and titanium
✔ gold plated & gold filled jewelry is an option too. Just remember under the plating, the base metal contains nickel which will wear away with time.
