For centuries many people have used gold for their wedding band. It is a great metal and in the most pure form doesn’t have too many allergies. In fact less than 1% of the population is allergic to gold. However, most gold wedding bands are made of 10, 14, or 18 karat gold. This means that there are other metals mixed in with them. The most common metal mixed with gold rings is nickel. Around 10 percent of the worlds population has an allergy to nickel.
If you like white jewelry then you might want to consider getting a palladium ring. These rings are 95 percent pure and don’t contain any nickel so it will be very unlikely for you to have an allergy to palladium. It does happen but it isn’t very common. In fact much less than 1 percent of the population has an allergy to palladium. You usually can tell fairly quickly if your body doesn’t like it.
