How to Find the Best Jewelry for Sensitive Skin

What is Hypoallergenic Jewelry?

Do you have sensitive skin or allergies that make wearing jewelry difficult? Most of the time that is caused by a nickel allergy.

If so, hypoallergenic jewelry might just be the perfect solution. Hypoallergenic jewelry is made from materials that are better suited for people with sensitive skin, allergies, or extremely sensitive ears.

This article is designed to introduce readers to hypoallergenic jewelry, what it is made of, and where you can find it. So, if you have struggled to find jewelry that works with your sensitive skin, this is the perfect article for you. 

Our top picks for hypoallergenic materials:

1. 14k Gold Filled Jewelry

14k gold filled jewelry is a great hypoallergenic option for those looking for a beautiful, long-lasting piece of jewelry without the expensive price tag of solid gold jewelry.

It is made from a solid layer of 14k gold, bonded with pressure to a base metal such as brass or bronze. This process ensures that the gold layer will be thick enough to be durable, long-lasting and hypoallergenic because of how thick the layer of real gold is!

Gold filled jewelry is more affordable than solid gold, but still retains the beauty of gold with the added benefit of more durability. As an added bonus, the 14k gold layer is able to be polished to a shine similar to that of solid gold, ensuring that it can always look its best.

Our customers with lead and nickel allergies do very well with 14k gold filled earrings and other pieces of jewelry. Not to mention it's waterproof and tarnish resistant!

2. Gold Vermeil Jewelry

Gold vermeil jewelry is another great hypoallergenic option for jewelry. it is also durable and affordable.

Gold vermeil jewelry is made by coating sterling silver with a layer of 14-karat gold. The layer is several microns thick and is more substantial than the gold plating typically seen on plated jewelry. The gold acts as a barrier and protects the sterling silver from oxidation, making gold vermeil jewelry. 

It is ideal for sensitive skin and ears because of the base being sterling silver. As long as you are not allergic to sterling silver and real gold, this type of jewelry will be a great option for you!
