Why We Love Skin Friendly Jewelry (And You Should Too!)

Aug 16th 2018

Looking good doesn’t mean that you should expose yourself to jewelry that can cause a rash, itch, and redness on your skin. Are you aware that anyone can develop an allergy to their jewelry especially if it contains nickel?

10% to 15% of the human population has an allergic reaction to the metal nickel. That’s 10 to 15 times more children and adults than who suffer from peanut allergies.

From watchbands, belt buckles to earrings and necklaces, Nickel Allergic Contact Dermatitis (Ni-ACD) happens when the chemical elementnickel touches the skin.

Ni-ACD is why more people are switching to skin friendly jewelry. The awful consequences of a nickel allergy can ruin your skin and appearance. It spoils the reason you wear jewelry in the first place. After all, the right jewelry is an accessory that will complete your outfit, boost confidence, and self-expression.

Looking Remarkable While Staying Safe

Admit it. Everyone loves to see beautifully crafted jewelry. If men love their watches for confidence and status, women feel the same way too about their jewelry.

Unfortunately, cheap jewelry, sterling silver, and gold jewelry can all contain nickel as part of the alloy which can irritate your skin.

Why play Russian roulette with your skin? Wear nickel-free and hypoallergenic jewelry. Purchase a quality piece that is elegantly crafted and looks beautiful on anyone, anytime.

A Thoughtful Gift for Young and Old Alike

Before you know it a birthday, anniversary, Christmas, Mother’s Day, or graduation are just around the corner. You know that jewelry is the most thoughtful gift ever for your parents, spouse, children, and close friends.

A beautiful piece of skin-friendly jewelry shows that you care about someone’s comfort and wellbeing, and you never have to worry about an allergic reaction. It’s a kind gesture, a display of affection that can be worn daily or kept forever as a memory of a great relationship.

What kind of jewelry will you buy as a gift?

It all depends on the occasion. Skin friendly earrings, a necklace or a bracelet, are excellent choices.

If the gift is for a child, how about skin-friendly hypoallergenic earrings? When it comes to earrings for babies and small children, medical grade plastic is the right choice because they are hypoallergenic, durable, and lightweight.

Skin Friendly Earrings for A Healthy Start

Ear piercing is a fashion statement and part of many cultures. It looks nice to have either studs or earrings. Parents sometimes give their children birthstone earrings after their baptism or communion.

We’re not discussing the ear-piercing system or technique this time. But you can find out the best way to pierce your child’s ears here.

For babies and children, it’s vital to their health to choose only skin-friendly earrings.

Medical Grade Titanium and Plastic for Safe, Long-Term Wear

Most people wear earrings for an extended period of time. It is safer to choose studs or earrings that will eliminate discomfort, itchiness due to allergic reactions.

  • If you or someone just pierced the ear, a plastic earring back is the key to optimal healing.
  • Do you know that medical grade titanium earrings are the safest of all metals? Titanium is accepted exceptionally well by our body and why it replaces surgical stainless steel in implants and other medical applications.
  • Medical Plastic earrings contain no nickel which ensures zero nickel exposure. It’s the best choice for kids.

“Making beautiful jewelry is a complicated art. Making beautiful jewelry that takes into account the wearers' health is even harder.” - Karl Blomdahl, founder of Blomdahl Medical

Comfort and Luxury of Skin Friendly Jewelry

Love wearing jewelry again, even if you have sensitive skin. You don’t have to compromise on the design or quality, neither do you have to spend a lot of money. No more rashes, blisters, aggressive itching, or ugly green marks.

So, why do people love their skin-friendly jewelry?

  • Safe and stylish enough to wear all day, all night and every day
  • Can share with others including those with allergies.
  • Protect children from being exposed to potentially toxic substances or materials.
  • A gift that doesn’t pose any health risk.
  • Comes in excellent designs, selections, and quality.

The next time you’re thinking about buying jewelry, choose wisely. Avoid nickel and potentially toxic or carcinogenic substances found in cheap jewelry such as cadmium, lead, formaldehyde, phthalates, and bisphenol A (BPA). Think about how comforting it will make you or others feel wearing skin-friendly jewelry.

Just one word of caution. Just because jewelry is hypoallergenic doesn’t mean it is nickel-free. Don’t be fooled by claims of “hypoallergenic” or “nickel-free” in U.S. stores either. The U.S. government does not regulate jewelry content or the use of these phrases. Only in the E.U. do they strictly regulate nickel in jewelry and Blomdahl is certified for the manufacturing of medical devices in accordance with ISO 13485.
