My wife has an allergy to nickel, so she can't wear cheap jewelery or watches. She wants a watch for her birthday, and has directed me to the "Simply Whispers" web site, who have nickel-free watches. The best one they have is like $80.
Well, I know she can wear gold, but she told me she has had problems with gold-plated stuff.
I would really like to get her a nice watch (the one I'm looking at is a Cyma for $800) but it's gold plated. Solid gold is way too expensive for me. Now, the jeweler told me it's heavy (10 micron) 18K gold plated, not "flash" gold plated like the cheap stuff.
Does anyone have a nickel allergy and any experience with a "quality" gold plated item?
