My adult son has a rash right below his neck, between his collar bones. He recently started wearing metal jewelry. Could this be an allergic reaction?

In brief: Yes

Contact allergy to nickel is very common.
Nickel is used extensively in cheap jewelry. He likely won't have a problem is he wears "pure" gold or silver.
