Metal allergy is a term that sounds quite exotic, but it is actually very common and it’s an obstacle for many people who want to wear a wedding ring. Why it happens, how does it look and what are the options for avoiding it? Let’s find out the answers to those questions.
What is a metal allergy?
This is actually an allergy to the nickel components of the jewelry. It could be present both at birth and developed later in life. So yes – the metal allergy could occur after a few years of smooth and unproblematic wearing your metal wedding ring.
Sometimes the “metal allergy” is not really an allergy – it is a certain type of skin sensitivity, developed in the ring area. It’s so common, that it has a name of its own – a “ring rash”. The ring rash could occur at any time and the reasons for it are multiple – improper hygiene, tightness of the ring, sharpened skin sensitivity, and other conditions of the skin such as dermatitis or eczema.
How does it feel?
Well, it feels awful. It gets red, swollen, itches and if not treated properly it could cause even open wounds and infections. And the proper treatment? It’s quite often removing your wedding ring for good. That’s a really sad option for you and your spouse, so Maui rings are here to proudly offer you a better solution…

- They are hypoallergenic. Metal allergy, of course, is completely out of the game if you buy a silicone wedding ring. And even if you have a history of allergic reactions to silicone, those rings are medically improved to allow minimum skin irritation. This is why they are perfect to wear for longer periods of time, as a wedding ring is supposed to;
- They are softer and looser on the finger. It’s safe to say that a silicone rings’ design is especially healthy for people who are prone to allergies and often experience unpleasant ring rashes.

They ensure your finger always has just enough of the comfortable freedom and space for the skin to breathe;
