Is Sterling Silver Hypoallergenic?

What Does Hypoallergenic Mean?

Hypoallergenic refers to any product that should not trigger an allergic reaction. For those with sensitive skin, this can be a top priority when looking for all kinds of products, from silver jewellery to clothing.

Is All Silver Hypoallergenic?

The different types of silver are made in different ways which affects how hypoallergenic they are. Pure silver is entirely hypoallergenic, however is often too soft to use in jewellery. For the most part sterling silver uses copper as its alloy, as copper itself is also a hypoallergenic metal. With both metals combining, sterling silver is hypoallergenic too making it perfect for earrings and rings.

Keep Your Silver Clean to Reduce Allergies

Keeping sterling silver jewellery clean is essential to reduce irritation. Throughout our day to day lives the items we wear can pick up dirt and grime which could lead to uncomfort when worn against the skin. To clean your silver chains and stacking rings, simply polish them with a cloth. For those that contain gemstones such as diamonds, avoid submerging in water whilst cleaning as this can loosen the precious gem. With dirt removed your sterling silver will remain hypoallergenic.
