Is it true cheap jewelry is dangerous or toxic?

My skeptic senses are tingling but I still want to know your thoughts. 


  • I get a big irritation if I wear earrings that are not gold or silver and I can't wear them for more than a few hours. I also get a rash if I wear some other type of jewellery made from metals. But plastic bracelets are not a problem. But I know girls who wear non silver earrings every day and don't have any problem.
  • I agree with the Jezebel article: you shouldn't eat cheap jewelry. Beyond that, I don't see much cause for concern (as long as you're not having an allergic reaction.)
  • Okay. I did find the Jezebel article was chemophobic though.
