In brief: Fine metals

Most fine metals used in expensive jewelry (like pure gold, platinum, & titanium) do not cause contact allergies.
The metals most likely involved are nickel, cobalt, and chromate which are often mixed with other metals. They are also found in insecticides, dyes/inks/paints, construction materials like cement, & leather tanning products. Patch testing can help identify dermatitis due to allergy.
