Hypoallergenic Jewelry: What You Should Know

20Views

Hypoallergenic jewelry is becoming more and more popular, but do you know what it means to be hypoallergenic? They are made of materials that are less likely to cause an allergic reaction. This includes metals like titanium, gold, platinum, and stainless steel. Hypoallergenic earrings can also be found in 14kt or 18kt white gold and sterling silver if metal allergies are not a concern for the wearer. Hypoallergenic rings may also include diamonds or other precious stones; however, it’s important to note that even these materials could cause reactions to certain people who have sensitive skin.

Who can use this jewelry?

Hypoallergenic jewelry is an excellent alternative for those who suffer from metal allergies; however, it’s important to note that no material is 100% hypoallergenic. Hypoallergenic earrings are popular because they allow people with sensitive skin an option other than stainless steel posts which can be uncomfortable and even painful after wearing them for long periods due to their sharp edges. This jewelry offers a comfortable solution for individuals who have sensitivities or allergies to metals in traditional body piercing materials such as nickel, silver, gold alloyed with copper (called red brass), pewter, and others.
