Dear Budget Fashionista,
I am very sensitive to metallic jewelry (I think it’s a nickel allergy), but I want to wear jewelry. I’m not allergic to gold, but it’s expensive and tends to be boring. Where can I find cute and trendy affordable jewelry?

Nickel Free Jewelry

Answer: Nickel allergies is the #1 contact allergy in the US. There’s several places to find trendy, stylish nickel free jewelry. Target’s Xhilaration line has several pieces, all under $15. Also stores like Claire’s, Icing, H&M, and websites like Asos.com, have a large selection of stylish jewelry (like the piece shown above).
