Symptoms of a metal allergy can include itching, redness, dry skin, swelling and pain in the skin area. Typically, symptoms appear within about 24 to 48 hours after use.

We strive to take all allergies caused by metals into account and reduce the use of easily allergenic metals in our production. Solu Design mentions the contents of the metals as clearly as possible in the product information on the website.

If you notice allergy symptoms caused by Solu Design jewelry, please notify Solu Design as soon as possible by email:

Metals that cause allergic reactions and connections with other metals:

  • Nickel and stainless steel
  • Nickel is the most common allergy-causing metal worldwide. Nickel is also the most used metal alloy. Stainless steel often contains nickel and iron, which cause allergy symptoms for those with a metal allergy.

    Solu Design constantly strives to ensure that there is no nickel in our jewelry.

  • Copper, rose gold and sterling silver
  • If you are allergic to copper, you are also allergic to rose gold and sterling silver. Rose gold contains gold and copper. This combination also creates a rose gold color shade.

    Pure silver is too soft a metal to use as such in jewelry making. When 7.5% of other metals are added to pure silver, it becomes sterling silver. Often the metal added here is copper.

  • Brass
  • Brass is often used as a filling in jewelry making. The brass is plated with either gold or sterling silver. If green colored spots appear on the skin after wearing jewelry, brass has been used in the metal alloy of the jewelry. In this case, you should stop wearing the jewelry.

    Solu Design does not use brass in its products.

  • Metal coatings
  • Metal coatings do not completely protect you from metal allergy. Metal coatings often wear away in use and thus reveal other metals under the coating. It is customary to use a metal coating to keep the price of the jewelry low.

    Solu Design does not use metal coating in its products.

  • Gold
  • Gold can also cause allergy symptoms. Only pure gold, i.e. 24K gold, does not cause allergy symptoms. Gold also exists in 14K, 18K and 22K. These figures refer to the proportion of pure gold in the alloy.

    For example, nickel or other metals can be mixed with white gold. However, sterling silver, copper or brass are often used in the mix. The larger the proportion of gold, the lower the risk of metal allergy.
