WHAT METALS CAUSE ALLERGIES?
The number one metal that causes an allergic skin reaction is nickel. Lower quality jewelry use lower quality metals and typically contain nickel. About 99% of all people who get an allergic reaction to jewelry is because of it's nickel content. Metals like Gold, Fine Silver, and Platinum in their 100% pure state are considered 100% inert and hypoallergenic. Unfortunately, most jewelry is not "pure" metal and is mixed with other metals to make them stronger and more durable or to add color. Metals like 14K/18K gold, Sterling Silver, and Stainless steel are all mixed with other metals.like nickel, copper, selenium, and brass. While rare, some people can be allergic to these metals as well. There is no way to avoid these metals in most jewelry but our jewelry is nickel free and covers 99% of all people who are allergic to jewelry.
I AM ALLERGIC TO STERLING SLIVER!
This is one of the most common misconceptions people make. Not all Sterling Silver is the same! If you have previously had an allergic reaction to "Sterling Silver" it is because it was more than likely mixed with nickel. Pure (fine) Silver is "inert" and therefore totally hypoallergenic. To make it stronger for jewelry use, Sterling Silver is mixed with other metals. Our sterling is made of the highest Quality metals and has absolutely NO NICKEL additives. This is the BEST Sterling Silver on the market and hypoallergenic to 99% of all people.
* Because our competitors can ONLY offer lower quality metal padlocks we also offer them (as a "free lock"). These locks are typically made of a zinc alloy and then plated with copper and finally plated in nickel and polished to a mirror shine. If you have jewelry allergies this is not the lock for you.
We are the ONLY store in the ENTIRE WORLD to offer locks in Nickel Free Precious Hypoallergenic Metals. (Sterling Silver, 14/18K gold and Surgical Stainless Steel)
