Do you have sensitive skin and want to wear those trendy fashion jewelry pieces? Did you know one in four people has an allergy to alloys present in costume and fine jewelry, glasses, watches, even clasps and snaps found on clothing?
Here are some tips to help:
When in Doubt, Use Metal-Testing Kits Metal testing kits come with a set of solutions that rub onto jewelry to figure out the metals and purity of any jewelry. Simply drop the solution onto a cotton ball and rub it against any area of your jewelry. A reaction will change the color of the solution, alerting you to the presence of certain metals. A complete kit will cost you around $50 on sites like Amazon. This is helpful if you're buying jewelry and you're unsure of its alloys, or if you've inherited vintage and antique jewelry.
