In brief: Gold and Platinum

People who are allergic to "cheap jewelry" are usually allergic to nickel and/or chromium.
Though contact allergy can occur to any metal, the lowest rates of reaction are (unfortunately for some) to the more expensive metals like gold and platinum. The higher the quality, the less likely there is for a reaction.
