What does it mean when my husband's left hand ring finger starts to itch so that he has to take it off?

In brief: Sounds

Suspicious, because gold allergies are rare, but nickel is a common cause of allergies.
Maybe there can be contaminants trapped, so soak it in a ring cleaner, and have him wash carefully. Look for redness. Allergy, infection and 7 year itch all possibilities.
