Have you ever had an allergic reaction to your jewelry? It’s a well-known fact that the metal contained in your jewelry setting can cause some annoying allergy symptoms to those that have a sensitivity to it. You may not be aware of the metal(s) and alloys that are present in your favorite pieces of jewelry, and the results may surprise you! Those that do experience a reaction should transition to metals that are hypoallergenic.
According to the National Institute of Health, allergic symptoms resulting from exposure to metals typically appear 24 to 48 hours after exposure. They can include itching, redness, tenderness, swelling, and warmth to the exposed area. In more severe cases, dry patches and blisters may occur.
If you do have hypersensitive skin, stick to what’s pure for the best symptom-free experience. And guess what?! We now offer select styles in Platinum and Tantalum! Two completely hypo-allergenic metals that are gentle on the skin.
Platinum is a precious metal that is rarer and more durable than gold. It offers a naturally white hue that will never tarnish or develop a lustrous patina over time. Our platinum jewelry is hypoallergenic and free from harmful alloys that can cause irritation. We have a wide selection of fine jewelry that marries the brilliance of moissanite with the timelessness of platinum.

Tantalum is a precious metal that is 99% pure, with zero reactive properties. It is resilient and extremely resistant to corrosion. This modern, classic metal is an economical alternative to other precious metals and is quickly becoming very popular for men’s wedding bands. All of our tantalum bands are made in the USA and are designed with a comfort fit. Learn more about tantalum by visiting this page to shop all of our tantalum offerings here.
