Is Silver jewelry nickel-free?

925 Sterling Silver is an alloy that does not contain any nickel, which means it is hypoallergenic. All of my handmade Sterling Silver natural stone jewelry is hypoallergenic! However, Sterling Silver plated jewelry might not be hypoallergenic. If you have sensitive skin, you need to be certain that you are purchasing real 925 Sterling Silver jewelry or that the Silver-plated jewelry you choose is plated over a nickel-free base, such as brass. To learn more, see my article on Hypoallergenic & Nickel Free Jewelry.
