Think Before You Shop for Cheap Jeweleries

Researches have suggested that cheap jeweleries can be a nightmare! Fashion frenzy crowd love to flaunt matching jeweleries to add oodles to the unique style statement. It really works, but not always. Many women wearing cheap fashion jeweleries complain about painful red swelling and blisters. Even accessories such as belt buckle may cause allergy to the sensitive skin.

The research community claims that the main reason behind the allergic reaction is the nickel content of the base alloy used for making these jeweleries. Nickel has an affinity for particular immune-system protein, which functions to detect harmful invaders. When nickel comes in contact with these proteins,  it identifies them as an infectious agent and triggers allergic reaction.
