Is sterling silver jewellery hypoallergenic?Updated a year ago

Sterling silver is generally considered to be a hypoallergenic metal, making it a popular choice for those with sensitive skin or metal allergies. However, some people may still experience allergic reactions or skin irritation when wearing sterling silver jewellery . This is because some sterling silver jewellery contains trace amounts of other metals such as copper, which can cause a reaction in some individuals.

If you have a known allergy or sensitivity to metals, we recommend being cautious when wearing any type of jewellery. Sterling silver may still be a good option for you, but it's always a good idea to test the jewellery first to ensure that you don't have a negative reaction. It's important to note that other metals commonly used in jewellery , such as stainless steel, often contain nickel, which is a common allergen. In these cases, sterling silver may be the go-to material for those with metal allergies. At NineTwoFive we use the highest quality 925 sterling silver available to make it attractive for every kind of customer.
