5 Top Reasons to Purchase Hypoallergenic Nickel-Free Jewelry

“I can only wear real silver or gold.”

“I am allergic to fashion jewelry & break out in a rash.”

“Fashion jewelry is cheaply made.”

I’m sure either you have said or heard someone say this before. Sasha L Jewels is here to tell you that these are all myths. As a jewelry designer who has had sensitive skin their whole life, I can tell you that you can buy fashion jewelry without having an allergic reaction. 

To avoid allergies, buy only hypoallergenic, nickel-free jewelry such as the jewelry found at the SLJ Boutique. All SLJ jewelry is Nickel-Free, Lead Base Free and Hypoallergenic Free.


Hypoallergenic jewelry is designed to lessen the risk of an allergic reaction to materials found in your jewelry. The clinical term refers to jewelry materials. Most often, people experience rashes, swelling, redness, or itchiness (an allergic reaction) to some compound such as nickel or other metals found in the jewelry itself. Sometimes inexpensive, softer metals are combined with gold or silver within jewelry to make them stronger and more durable. But your body can react to this.


  1. Nickel-Free Hypoallergenic Jewelry Won’t Cause an Allergic Reaction

Hypoallergenic jewelry is compatible with the human body and is usually medical grade. The jewelry metal is higher-grade and can be used for body jewelry, earrings, necklaces, bangles, rings, you name it! 

Medical grade metal hypoallergenic jewelry should be nickel-free to avoid any skin reactions.

Investing in quality nickel-free jewelry and earrings enhances your look & style and ability to mix n match more accessories with your wardrobe. You avoid having to 

  1. Comfort

How many times have you suddenly taken off a pair of earrings because you were getting a flare-up along your neck or ears? Low-quality earrings can cause allergic symptoms that can take days to heal. Hypoallergenic jewelry is comfortable for all-day use, day to evening, and you don’t have to worry about throwing out or not being able to wear your jewelry.

  1. Style & Versatility

High-quality hypoallergenic fashion jewelry can make you look fabulous. You have more versatile collections and styles to choose from and mix n’ match with your other accessories and wardrobe. You can wear them all seasons with strong durability and less resistance to tarnishing. You look and feel great with no rashes or irritation to go with your look.

  1.  More Bang for Your Buck: Hypoallergenic Jewelry Lasts 

Quality nickel-free hypoallergenic jewelry doesn’t need to break the bank. You can invest in quality jewelry that enhances your sense of expression and buy a jewelry design you really love. Buying quality fashion jewelry also ensures longer durability if properly cared for. You can find affordable hypo-allergenic jewelry easily. It is less costly and more affordability affords for more jewelry options in your personal jewelry collection!

Beware of the $1 or cheap jewelry shops- if the jewelry is this inexpensive, most likely they are not hypoallergenic or nickel-free.

  1. It Makes You a Smarter Jewelry Buyer

Knowing the jewelry products you are putting on your body makes you an empowered jewelry shopper. Do a little research and pay attention to sensitive reactions your body may have to certain jewelry or brands. Ask questions to sales associates and read labels and jewelry product descriptions. It can take years to develop an allergy to low-quality metals.
