Nickel free jewelry is very useful if you have a nickel allergy. Most of the time, nickel free jewelry is also hypoallergenic unless we are talking about a gold allergy, which is very rare. If you get a rash most of the time you wear jewelry, it doesn’t mean that you have to give up your favorite pieces. It only means that you need to buy hypoallergenic jewelry. Keep on reading to discover how to buy precious jewelry metals that do not contain nickel.

Do I have a nickel allergy?

If you get an itchy rash when you wear jewelry, then it could mean that you have a nickel allergy. Nickel is a metal commonly used in jewelry alloys. Gold-plated and gold-filled jewelry can contain nickel. White gold usually contains it and solid yellow gold pieces can have it as well.

It is very uncommon for somebody to have a gold allergy, but it can happen. If you want to see whether you are allergic to gold or nickel, try wearing 22k gold jewelry. If you still get a rash, then it means you are one of the few people who are allergic to gold. However, chances are that you won’t get an allergic reaction, which means that you are actually allergic to the nickel sometimes used in 14 and 18k solid gold pieces.

What nickel free jewelry can I buy?

Having a nickel allergy limits your choices of jewelry, but this doesn’t mean that you have to give up your favorite pieces. In fact, you can find many options for nickel free jewelry.

Sterling silver is one of the safest choices for you. This alloy that contains 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper is hypoallergenic and great to wear even if you have a nickel allergy. Most of the sterling silver pieces represent nickel free jewelry, so you are safe with solid silver. And even if your silver earrings, for example, are not sterling silver but Argentum silver, you can still wear them. The difference between sterling silver and Argentum is that Argentum has germanium in addition to silver and copper.

Other jewelry without nickel is titanium. Also used in the medical industry, titanium is hypoallergenic and doesn’t contain nickel. It also has a sleek look and looks very glam when accessorized the right way.

Other nickel free jewelry choices are yellow and rose gold and platinum. However, with gold, you have to make sure there is no nickel in the alloy. Ask the jeweler about it. While it is not common to use nickel in a yellow or rose gold alloy, it can happen. Before buying a gold piece, ask the jeweler about the metals in the alloy. White gold, on the other hand, is almost never nickel free jewelry. This happens because nickel has a sleek white color and it is used to enhance the color of white gold. However, you still have options. Instead of buying white gold jewelry, get platinum. Because of its high purity, platinum is always a great choice for nickel free jewelry.
