If you're allergic to nickel, you know that you have to pass up all that really trendy jewelery dangling next to the season's hottest outfits. The cheaper stuff is full of nickel, though they do have cheaper earrings these days that are listed as "nickel free".... but for the most part, you stay away. In high school, I made the mistake of buying some earrings for prom that had stainless steel posts. Turns out they were an alloy mixed with nickel and my ears were in a STATE, to put it mildly. So gross.
So, I thought I'd share this bracelet with you that a good friend gave me! She knows how I love to sparkle ;-) And it's coated with some sort of paint, so I'm not touching any nickel. It's great! So, when you're par-oozing the more affordable jewelry, keep an eye out for jewelry that's coated. This one is from J. Crew and I get lots of compliments on it - it REALLY sparkles!
This photo is kinda blurry, but it shows off how nicely it glitters:
