Can a metal allergy test be used in determining what type of earrings or jewelry one can wear?

In brief: Yes

You can get a patch test by an allergist that can determine if you're allergic to different things.
The most common is a nickel allergy. It can easily be diagnosed by just your history and skin reaction to the offending agent.

I would add that if you bring the earrings that cause irritation, rash and other symptoms with you to the visit, they may be able to determine the contents/actual metal involved.
