Have you ever experienced a rash or itchiness when wearing costume jewelry? You may have a nickel allergy! According to the Mayo Clinic, the following symptoms occur when someone with a nickel allergy comes in contact with jewelry that contains nickel:
Rash or bumps on the skin
Itching, which may be severe
Redness or changes in skin color
Dry patches of skin that may resemble a burn
Blisters and draining fluid in severe cases
If this has happened to you, you may have a nickel allergy. To reduce your risk of irritation, you should wear hypoallergenic jewelry, jewelry that is nickel free. The Patra Jordan Collection of costume jewelry is all hypoallergenic. It is made from high quality copper, stainless steel, 18K gold plating and 18K rose gold plating.
