Go ahead, with us, you can buy and Wear With Confidence
We travel far and wide to bring you, not only gorgeous and unusual jewellery, but pieces that are as ‘friendly’ as possible to your skin, so everybody can wear them.
While most people will not have had a problem and never will, nearly 25% of the population think that they cannot wear fashion jewellery. In reality it’s closer to 10% of the population that actually does have a reaction.
If you are at all unsure, I hope this will help:
Whichever of our pieces you are choosing, all our manufactures and suppliers assure us that these pieces are free from all the usual impurities, including Nickel, Zinc and Lead, that could cause the most common irritations or reactions.
However, if you have any concerns, have known sensitive skin or have reacted before to fashion jewellery, always do a ‘patch test’. Only wear the piece for a short period of time until you are fully comfortable that a reaction is not going to take place. If you ‘feel’ reaction, discomfort or see a reddening of the skin – remove the piece immediately and treat as appropriate.
Home kits to test the content of the metals used in all jewellery are readily available from the internet if you require.
If you have had nickel allergies or a reaction to costume jewellery before, here are a few tips that may help:
Clear nail varnish on the back or inside of jewellery can stop it touching the skin – this works best on rings and solid pieces.
A clear strip of jewellery tape on the inside or back, again to stop the piece actually touching the skin.
Wear your jewellery over clothing – a bracelet over a shirt cuff, or a necklace on the outside of a shirt collar, high collared jumper or top.
Necklaces can be worn over a thin scarf.
Avoid perfuming where your jewellery is going to be. Not only can it tarnish the jewellery but the combination of the two could lead to a reaction in a few people, particularly at the wrist and neck.
Store your jewellery carefully to avoid it getting nicks and scratches that could rub and irritate the skin.
Don’t wear your jewellery for too long. If you are going out, or have an occasion, put your jewellery on last and take it off as soon as possible.
Costume jewellery is a fantastic opportunity to buy gorgeous pieces that make you feel great, look fabulous and boost your confidence. Don’t be put off because you think ‘might’ have an issue or have reacted in the past – like everything else, costume jewellery has moved on and improved hugely in recent years.
