Is Platinum Jewelry Good for Sensitive Skin?

Hypoallergenic platinum jewelry

If you’re a fan of wearing jewelry, then you likely have a collection made mostly of metal. There are different kinds of metals used in manufacturing jewelry, including gold, silver, and nickels. Unfortunately, almost 15% of women are allergic to nickel and other types of metal. This is why, at Sep Vergara Platinum Jewelry, we offer a beautiful selection of platinum jewelry that’s not only stunning but also hypoallergenic. 

What is Hypoallergenic Jewelry?  

Hypoallergenic jewelry simply refers to jewelry that is made with a material unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. By limiting the amount of nickel content in a piece of jewelry, the final product is less likely to be irritating. That said, nickel is not the only metal that causes skin allergies in jewelry. It’s important to know what metals you are allergic to so you can choose hypoallergenic jewelry. 

Why Should You Buy Hypoallergenic Jewelry?

Have you ever tried on a necklace or a pair of earrings that you really liked, only to be red and itchy after a few hours? This likely means that you’re allergic to some of the metals used in the piece. With hypoallergenic jewelry, there is a minimal risk of irritation. 

Platinum pieces often have very high levels of pure platinum in them, making them a great hypoallergenic choice. This means that there is very little to no risk of an allergic reaction when you choose platinum bracelets compared with bracelets made with other types of metal. 

With hypoallergenic jewelry, you also get a better value for the price. Since there is more precious metal than alloys in the piece, you get better grades of metal in each piece of jewelry. 

Why Platinum Jewelry is Naturally Kind to All Skin Types?

The natural qualities of platinum means it’s compatible with all skin types, making it the only true hypoallergenic metal. In fact, many jewelers recommend platinum as the safest metal to wear, especially for people with highly sensitive skin. This is because, unlike gold or silver which require metal alloys to be hard enough to use in jewelry, most platinum pieces are over 95% pure. In fact, at Sep Vergara Platinum Jewelry, we offer a selection of platinum earrings and bracelets that feature an array of precious gems and stones.

Other metals also react to temperature changes or everyday substances. During summer, the heat, seawater, pool chemicals, and sunscreen can cause gold and silver jewelry to oxidize, which can lead to a negative reaction with your skin. In comparison, platinum jewelry is highly resistant to tarnishing and corrosion, which means it won’t be affected by common acids. This makes it extremely safe for all skin types.
