Metal allergy is high in populations around the world. Around 17% of women and 3% of men are allergic to metals. Nickel is usually the main culprit. But some people are allergic to gold, silver and other metals in the jewellery. The benefits of the jewellery are dampened when your beautiful pieces leave you with ugly rashes, blistering, or redness where they can come into contact with your sensitive skin.
A Guide to Skin-friendly jewellery
Wear metals that are hypoallergenic, meaning metals which imply having a less likely allergic reaction, but they should not be taken to mean “void of any allergic reactions”. One can always ask your seller before buying your jewellery because who wants to buy stuff which doesn't go along with their skin type? Prevention is better than cure. It’s always best to know your skin sensitivities before buying. Some of the high-quality products are hypoallergenic which does not cause any irritation or harm to your skin.
Here’s the list of some skin-friendly materials:
- Gold Plating
- Sterling Silver
- Stainless Steel
Every skin reacts to various metals differently. It is important to be aware of your skin sensitivities. Many people have a terrible reaction to low-quality or alloy metals. Here’s the list of metals to avoid if you have sensitive skin:
- Nickel: It is the most common metal causing allergy. Some stainless steel does contain traces of nickel allergy which may lead you to a harmful reaction.
- Copper or Rose Gold: If you are allergic to copper, there is a good chance that you are allergic to rose gold as well. Metal alloys include copper-like rose gold, which contains a mixture of copper and gold, leading to a reaction from those allergic to copper.
- Brass: It is used commonly as sterling silver or gold. If your skin turns green after wearing a piece of jewellery there is probably some amount of brass in there.
