Jewelry For Sensitive Skin
Best Jewelry Types for Sensitive Skin
Sometimes having sensitive skin or an allergy to certain metals can take the fun out of fashion jewelry. Luckily, innovations in the world of jewelry allow those with particularly reactive skin to find pieces that are both comfortable to wear and express their individuality. Those with sensitive skin should seek out three types of particularly hypoallergenic metals: rhodium-plated sterling silver, nickel-free sterling silver, and platinum. While platinum is one of the most costly metals available, rhodium-plated and nickel-free sterling silver are relatively affordable and make for truly stunning pieces of jewelry.
Jewelry Types to Avoid
While various metal allergies exist, the most common one is a nickel allergy. Nickel is very commonly used to strengthen softer metals like 24K gold and pure silver, but its presence can adversely affect those with sensitive skin. Cheap costume jewelry typically contains high levels of nickel and should be wholly avoided by anyone with an allergy as interaction with nickel jewelry can cause redness, tenderness, pain, and even blister and dermatitis in some severe cases. When shopping for jewelry, it is always advisable to seek out nickel-free pieces to ensure the most comfortable wear.
