Metal Allergies

All my life I have had an allergy to anything jewelry related that I would wear that was not gold.. My husband can attest to it cause he has seen the rash that develops on my fingers when I don't clean my rings often enough or wear fake jewelry..
He has also seen the way my ears instantly start to swell and turn red when I wear fake earrings..

Well not to long ago I decided to buy some fake earrings to wear to the Nimitz ball.. because well.. dangling gold earrings would cost WAYYYYYY too much and I wanted something black.. So I bought them with hope that my ears wouldn't react too bad to them.

Low and behold my ears did not react AT ALL .. thats right, I had absolutely NO allergic reaction to my fake earrings! I couldn't believe it! I am so thrilled that I can now wear fake earrings! I wear fake necklaces any time I want as long as I don't leave them on for

Here is a picture of me with my dangling earrings in.. they are hard to see with all my

An interesting turn of events! Now if the rest of my body follows suit I will be doing good! lol


  1. yay! for being able to wear non gold earrings. I feel your pain. I can't wear white gold nor gold. But I can wear sterling silver. Weird, I know. But it's a pain. I can't wear my original engagement ring on my finger. Only on my necklace. My finger turns bright red, cracks, and swells. It's not a pretty sight. Needs rx strength steroid creams to calm it back down. So, till we can afford platinum, I will have to settle with a sterling silver wedding set.

    And I have to say, I really like those earrings. :)

  2. Yay! That's awesome! The chemistry in your body can change with pregnancy, so maybe after Alora your body chemistry changed. With my 2nd pregnancy my body chemistry changed and I couldn't wear fake earrings... but after the 3rd one, it changed back. It was so weird.
