Question:

Besides stainless steel....?

What other metal is used to make rings? My girlfriend is allergic to stainless steel, but she wears a silver/grayish color ring, but I'm not sure what metal it is. Any ideas? Thanks!

Answer:

In addition to silver, white gold, and titanium, it could be an alloy-a mix of a bunch of different metals. If she's allergic to stainless steel, though, she's probably allergic to nickel as well, which is often in metal alloys. Pewter is another silver-color metal that is sometimes used in rings. A pretty expensive silver-colored metal is platinum, but unless your girlfriend is rich or you gave it to her it's pretty unlikely she has a platinum ring. Your best bet would be to ask her if she knows what it's made of.

silver, white gold, and platinum match the color of stainless steel the best. they last long, too ;)
