Nickel is usually the cause of irritation in fine jewelry. This metal intolerance usually causes dermatitis, which is an itchy rash that appears where your skin has come in contact with the metal. Dermatitis usually disappears within a few days after removing the jewelry.
If you have a metal allergy there are precious metal options available that will allow your custom engagement ring safe to wear on a daily basis. We work with numerous hypoallergenic metal that can be used to create your dream ring!
14 karat Yellow or Rose Gold is usually safe as nickel is not commonly used as an alloy in either.
18 karat White gold could be used if your metal allergy is only mild. 18 karat will reduce the amount of alloy used by 25%, so less nickel will be present in the gold. It would not be suitable for people with severe allergies, but its usually enough to reduce irritation from a majority of customers.
Platinum is a naturally hypoallergenic metal. Creating your custom engagement ring in this metal will also provide you with the durability and longevity that platinum allows in jewelry.
Palladium is also a naturally hypoallergenic metal. Not all of our custom designs can be made in palladium, only a few would be manageable in the metal selection.
