Engagement Rings for Sensitive Skin
Best Engagement Ring Metals for Sensitive Skin
Your engagement ring is one that you will likely be wearing more often than any other piece in your wardrobe. For this reason, you will want to be sure that the ring you and your partner choose is one you can regularly wear with ease and comfort. Those with sensitivities to certain metals should opt for hypoallergenic options. Platinum, for instance, is a highly-valued metal with a stunning silver sheen that is great for sensitive skin. Palladium is similarly hypoallergenic and silvery but at a lower price point. You can also opt for gold rings that are 18k or more, as they have fewer added alloys than lower karat metals.
Metals to Avoid
When it comes to jewelry, the most common sensitivities are to the elements nickel and lead. Nickel is a metal frequently added to pure silver and gold to strengthen them, as the pure forms are quite soft. For this reason, higher karat golds are a better choice, as they will contain fewer amounts of nickel. While lead is more infrequently used in jewelry nowadays, one should still be diligent about avoiding it. When you buy rings forged in metals like palladium and platinum, you can rest assured that they are lead-free.
