Hypoallergenic jewelry is specifically made for those who experience allergic reactions to certain types of metal. A lot of jewelry companies will state right on the package if the metal used in the jewelry is hypoallergenic. Most people have a reaction to nickel, so it is also important to check if the jewelry is nickel free. Other metals that are hypoallergenic are platinum, rhodium, niobium, and gold.
