Allergic contact dermatitis is a skin condition that occurs when an allergen sensitizes the immune system, causing it to react or become inflamed upon contact. There are a number of substances that can cause allergic contact dermatitis, ranging from different plants and chemicals to certain cosmetics and metals.

“Jewelry allergy” is a common cause of allergic contact dermatitis. Certain jewelry—often those of the cheap variety—are known to cause the condition. Jewelry allergy is usually caused by traces of nickel or cobalt in the metals. However, wearing gold or silver pieces isn’t a guarantee that it’s safe; some gold or silver-plated jewelry pieces may contain trace elements of nickel from the manufacturing process.

Here at Titanium Style, our titanium jewelry pieces are guaranteed to be nickel and cobalt-free, and are perfectly safe to wear. Our beautiful and hypoallergenic rings also come with a lifetime warranty.
