Gem Avenue is the first place we go to look for Nickel Free jewelry. My daughter is allergic to nickel and it breaks her out severely. Some jewelers CLAIM to be nickel free, but we have never had to worry about anything from Gem Avenue. I bought this for her as a "purity ring" and it is discreet, beautiful and spurs conversation with her friends. Thank you for a great product, at an affordable price. We will be back, again and again.
