Gah.

I recently developed a nickel allergy - which manifested itself as a bright red itchy peeling angry mark under my wedding rings. You can faintly see the remainder of it on my finger below.

It's healing now, but it is still frustrating to have to resort to wearing my rings around my neck. I know I can get my rings rhodium plated and that will fix the problem for a few years at a time, but that could be a translating nightmare to try and accomplish here, so it might wait until my next visit stateside.

Oh no! From what metal?

They are both white gold (wedding band is 14K, engagement ring I'm not sure about - it was my grandmother's, so the carat marking has long since worn off). I'm so bummed!
