Heard of nickel free body jewelry? Or may be just about nickel? Well, nickel is that metal that is merged with base metals such as gold and silver to create body jewelry that is harder, stronger and shinier. Nickel is also the one to blame for most all allergic reactions that people mistakenly think that any and every body jewelry can cause. It’s nickel that does the damage and which is present in regular jewelry that you buy off Mall Kiosks (Very Bad Idea) and other bargain stores.
That does not mean you stop buying but instead start buying smartly. So the solution is not to shun body jewelry but body jewelry with nickel! Nickel free body jewelry is your best bet and it’s not only different from regular jewelry in terms of quality, look but is a lot safer overall, and you will usually find that the manufacturers that use nickel free jewelry will also provide you a much better quality and finish because they care about quality more then price.
What makes Nickel free body jewelry safer?
Absence of nickel of course! Body jewelry made from Titanium and Nickel Free Gold is usually the safest materials to opt for because these contain zero nickel! These are a tad more expensive than body jewelry with nickel but what’s a little money when it comes to the safety of your body, right? And we all know how majority of us do not reject gold at all 🙂
Especially when the first cheap piece from the mall causes and infection so then you purchase another one from a different kiosk only to make the problem worse, so you go to another store and get what they say is the best, on and on. Sound familiar? How much did all of those pieces of junk that you can not even wear cost you?
The difference between nickel free body jewelry and normal jewelry lies also in being medically and legally endorsed. The former has a legal sanction, the latter carries a directive against (especially in Europe).
So opt for safety rather than getting an allergy. And with all the potential allergies (and their treatments) that nickel can cause, regular body jewelry may not turn out to be that pocket saving anyways. only shop with company’s that have your safety in mind such as wwwTheChainGang.com , where all of their jewelry comes from the USA or England.
