April 30, 2012 - PRLog -- Every year on Mother's Day, jewelry is a top selection for special women to enjoy. Unfortunately a number of those gift recipients won’t be able to wear their beautiful treasures due to nickel allergy. Statistics show that up to 20% of women experience allergic reactions to metals, with nickel being the number one cause. Nickel is found in a majority of metal jewelry items because it is inexpensive and adds durability and luster. Those with nickel allergy often turn to gold and silver jewelry, but sometimes even these precious metals are alloyed with nickel and will cause allergy symptoms to flare.
It would stand to reason that the solution to this problem would be to buy hypoallergenic jewelry, jewelry for sensitive skin, or nickel free jewelry. However, in the United States, these terms have little meaning as there is no standard being regulated by the US government. These labels on some jewelry may mean absolutely nothing, or they may mean that the jewelry has been coated with a nickel free overlay that will temporarily protect the user from nickel exposure. This coating will erode over time allowing nickel to come in contact with the skin creating an allergic reaction to those people sensitive to nickel. Many nickel allergy sufferers report they no longer try to wear watches or earrings due to serious rashes, itchy skin, swelling, hives, or painful welts where the nickel has contacted their skin.
Luckily, there is an answer to shopping for nickel free jewelry. NoNickel.com offers a line of jewelry that includes nickel free earrings, nickel free watches, and nickel free rings.
