With the surge in mother's ring sales a couple months before Mother's Day, one question we receive quite a lot is about Hypoallergenic Mothers Rings. Many women are allergic to some of the metals used in jewelry, especially in the different rings they where, so it is a popular concern. This is why our family at MothersFamilyRings.com wanted to talk a little more about Hypoallergenic Mothers Rings.
What Would Be Considered Hypoallergenic Mother's Jewelry?
If you are looking to stick to hypoallergenic, you would need to choose from pure metals. These pure metals would include platinum, 18kt yellow gold, titanium, copper, stainless steel, fine silver and sterling silver. Here at MothersFamilyRings.com, almost every one of our mother's rings are available in platinum, many available in 18kt yellow gold, and we actually have a large collection of sterling silver. So the choices are really almost endless for those that are allergic to certain metals.
Which Metals to Stay Away From?
The big metals to stay away from for your mother's ring would be anything 10kt (white or yellow gold), 14kt yellow and especially 14kt white gold, which has nickel in it. We would also recommend staying away from 18kt white gold. If you do that, you should be pretty safe and not have any issues or reactions with your mother's jewelry.
The main culprit with allergies towards certain jewelry is nickel. This is why it is recommended to stay away from anything not-pure. We especially see issues with anything white gold, because of nicket being added. So it really depends on how allergic you are. But if you just want to play it safe and stick to only Hypoallergenic Mother's Jewelry, then the choices above are the metals to go with.
Another concern with whether your mother's ring is Hypoallergenic is the quality of the metals used. Some of the mother's jewelry coming out of China and India (you can tell by the long shipping times) could be an issue, as you don't know where they are being sourced from and the actually quality of the metals used. Here at MothersFamilyRings.com, all our rings are cast and set right in our jewelry store, located in Crown Point, Indiana. You can be assured that everything is created by us and we only use the highest quality metals available in all our Mother's Rings.
