Silver

Hi

I recently started wearing a silver ring, but am finding that my finger aches. Is it possible that silver affects you differently than gold?

Dear Karen
Some jewelry are not pure silver or gold but mixed with other metals like Nickle. If you are sensitive to this, you may get an allergic reaction. However it should not cause joint pain. The pain could be due to something unrelated.
