Metal allergies are pretty annoying and finding a wedding ring that will suit your body can be way more difficult than necessary. Metal allergies arise from the alloys in the jewelry, and not all jewelry uses the same alloys so most of us with a red rash on our fingers are stuck in the dark.
Symptoms of metal allergies arise within 24 to 48 hours of being exposed to the metal. Redness, tenderness, itching, swelling, heat radiating from the skin, dry patches, and blisters are the tell-tale signs of a metal allergy.
Metals to avoid if you have a metal allergy: Nickel, Gold, Stainless Steel, Copper, and Brass
Ceramic is a great choice for those who cannot wear metal jewelry because it is 100% natural and organic material. It’s not actually metal which means ceramic is a great choice for electricians or those who need their wedding bands to be non-conductive. Ceramic is a great choice for those who want to wear their wedding ring every day, have a metal allergy, and want an overall low maintenance ring.

Titanium is very lightweight but extremely strong and does not tarnish. Titanium is hypoallergenic and maintains its luster much longer than traditional metals like gold or sterling silver. If you want a lightweight, durable, and hypoallergenic ring that doesn’t break the bank, titanium is an awesome choice!

Cobalt chrome is a great alternative for those with metal allergies as they are hypoallergenic and bio-compatible.

Tungsten bands are about 85% tungsten carbide and 15% nickel which balances brittleness and softness. This is a great alternative for those with gold allergies because tungsten carbide is naturally hypoallergenic, just be mindful of the nickel if you have a nickel allergy.
