So I have a jewelry box full of stuff I’ve collected over the years… 99% of it I don’t have the tags/packaging for anymore…

Now I’m allergic to nickel…

How exactly does one go about finding out which jewelry isn’t safe anymore?? 

There’s the nail polish trick- you can use clear nail polish to seal your jewelry, and keep it from touching your skin directly… Or I figured I’d just get rid of stuff that made me itch, and if it was something I liked- replace it with higher quality metals. Or switch out french wires for nickel free ones. 

I decided on Sunday to wear a pair of earrings I hadn’t worn in a while. My whole face broke out… That’s finally feeling a little better. But my ears are still sad… 

So, in closing… I don’t recommend this method. I recommend painting with nail polish, if you have a nail polish that’s safe for you. Or upgrading. 

Yes, all that would be better…
