Allergies – Nickel and Impure Metal in Silver
Contrary to popular belief, 925 silver does not necessarily mean that it is free from impure metals. It simply means that the purity of the silver content is 92.5% – it definitely does not mean it is “nickel free”.
There are Nickel Free items available on this site. These items will be described as Nickel Free. If a person is allergic to a piece of jewellery it is usually the nickel or other metals that they are allergic to.
We do not suggest that any piece of silver or silver jewellery offered on this site is nickel free and do not offer any guarantees with regard to allergies.
If you have a nickel and/or any other impure metal allergy then please do not purchase any silver based product from this site. There are specialist suppliers who can produce items guaranteed to be free from nickel.
