It’s estimated that 15% of the world’s population has a nickel sensitivity. Nickel allergy is one of the most common causes of contact allergic dermatitis. In affected individuals, dermatitis develops in places where nickel-containing metal is touching the skin.

The alloy Nickel can be found in many products that touch skin, ranging from jewellery, eyeglass frames, watchbands, button, zippers to hair pins.

Nickel is used in the manufacture of precious metal alloys. In less expensive jewellery, nickel is often used in the base metal which is then plated with gold or silver.

We are proud to say all Rowdy Jewellery is Nickel and Lead free.
