Yes, it’s true. Some people are allergic to the metal nickel. Good news! Almost all Betsy & Iya jewelry has no nickel added. Any Betsy & Iya piece that does have nickel added intentionally will have this information clearly displayed on the product listing.
While most alloys we work with do not have nickel intentionally added, there is a possibility there may be minute amounts of nickel present as a trace element. This is true of all jewelry from all designers and manufacturers. This is why we use the verbiage no nickel added instead of nickel free. Except for people with very severe nickel allergies (you’ll know without a doubt if this is you), no nickel added is functionally interchangeable with nickel free.
