Different Types Of Rhinestone Jewelry

So how can you treat this allergy without losing your precious gold? Unfortunately, white gold is white due to the nickel it contains. However, you may purchase 18 Karat yellow gold (and possibly 14 Karat yellow gold) if it is nickel free. Here are some tips that may help: For gold rings, coat the inside with clear nail polish, about three coats. This should keep the metal off your skin, but will eventually wear off, and it may damage the ring itself. Coating earring posts is not recommended as it does wear off. Hence, use platinum or hypoallergenic posts.

If there’s a downside to titanium jewelry it’s that it hasn’t become widely available yet, making it difficult to purchase. Many local jewelry stores now carry some titanium jewelry, but usually only a small selection. You can ask to see their catalogue, and hopefully find something you like that they can order for you.

Sterling silver can be a wonderful and beautiful replacement when it is made nickel free. Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. The other metals can be any metal (including nickel). Fortunately, it is usually copper. However, to be certain, buy pieces that say “nickel free”.

Everyone looks forward to Friday because it begins the weekend. Thursdays are great too because people are looking forward to the next day. This is a day when you can be bold, playful or even sophisticated with your jewelry. Use necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings to enhance the colors and style of your outfit. You can even throw in a matching purse along with some matching shoes to complete your outfit!

The strength of titanium also means that it requires very little maintenance. The softer metals such as gold and platinum need to be polished regularly if you want to keep them looking their best. Titanium, however, only needs an occasional wipe to remove finger marks or dirt, and it’s as good as new again, stunningly white.

Simultaneously with necklaces, pendants also constitute definitive fashion jewelry. Marcasite pendant in sterling silver has a timeless attraction in evening parties. When hung from a silver chain this.925 sterling silver fashion jewelry is sure to turn heads at the party. Another outstanding piece is the combination of gray abalone shell and Marcasite.925 sterling silver pendant. These two are hung from a silver chain.

After a doctor’s visit, my aunt discovered she was allergic to nickel, a tough elemental metal that is mixed with the gold, with some copper, zinc and silver for good measure, to stiffen the end product and make it easier to shape due to the increased tensile strength of the metal. This has been a common practice for centuries after it was discovered that even 85% pure gold was very soft and would wear out quickly. 24K (or Karat) gold is 100% pure, and would wear away in no time.
