What is Hypoallergenic jewelry?
Hypoallergenic jewelry is that which is crafted of pure metals including platinum, 18k gold, titanium, copper, as well as stainless steel, fine silver and sterling silver. The most common jewelry allergy is against nickel. Nickel is a natural white metal often mixed with other metals to create an alloy such as rose gold or white gold. Approximately 15% of individuals who have an allergy to nickel according to the Mayo Clinic.
Common Hypoallergenic Jewelry
- Gold - 24 karat gold is pure gold, and is free of nickel alloys which are allergy inducing.
- Platinum - A popular choice for jewelry that leans toward the more expensive end of the pricing spectrum. It is referred to as the most durable metal that rarely tarnishes and is hypoallergenic.
- Rhodium - In the same family as platinum, Rhodium is used to "finish" white gold, allowing the piece of jewelry to maintain a long-term luster reminiscent of a white gold ring.
- Argenitum - a type of silver that is 100% recycled (environmentally friendly).
- Niobium - A metal that is resistant to corrosion, typically used in medical tools and foreign objects that go within the body.
Am I allergic to jewelry that contains nickel?
Nickel Allergy Symptoms:
- Itchy/ burning skin
- skin rash
- swelling, blistering skin
If you experience an itchy rash appearing where your skin came in contact with jewelry containing nickel, you may be experiencing allergic contact dermatitis, also referred to as a nickel allergy. It may take repeated or prolonged exposure to items containing nickel to develop such allergy. Contact dermatitis begins within hours to days after being exposed to the metal, lasting as long as 2-4 weeks while remaining localized in the point of contact with the skin. Once the allergy has developed, you will always be sensitive to the metal and must avoid contact. Therefore, one should not wear nickel jewelry when they are nickel allergic. If symptoms continue or worsen even after removing the jewelry piece, seek professional medical attention right away.
