TeNo jewellery is made of the finest stainless steel that is free of nickel. In terms of allergic safety and high durability this material is superior to most precious metals. Experienced master goldsmiths combine the steel with diamonds, 18 ct. gold, ceramic inlays or rubber. This is how individual pieces of jewellery with an exclusive quality are made. Every single piece becomes genuinely unique.
We are not born with nickel allergy. Nickel allergy is a skin contact allergy which can develop as a result of continuous contact with objects that contain nickel, such as zips, buttons, coins and jewellery. Ear piercing is a strong contributing factor to the increasing numbers of nickel allergy sufferers. World wide clinical studies have all identified and confirmed ear piercing as a prime risk factor for developing nickel allergy, with as many as 10-30% of all women affected.
Once you have developed a nickel allergy there is no remedy which can cure the allergy. The only solution is to avoid all contact with metals containing nickel. However this can be very difficult because all metals contain nickel, even gold and silver, mostly in the form of impurities. Therefore, there are no metal earrings which are entirely free from nickel.
If you already have pierced ears we recommend that you wear Nickel Free jewellery from Allergymatters.
