Anything else: The vast majority of people allergic to nickel do not react to other metals such as silver or gold. Alternatively, if you have some nickel-based jewelry that you still want to wear, coating the surface with clear nail polish will insulate your skin from the metal, so you can wear it without getting a rash.

Silver, gold: Avoid costume jewelry. Wear only jewelry that is 100% gold or silver.
