Nowadays, any woman can purchase as jewelry whatever her soul desires. Rings, bracelets, pendants, chains, clip-on earrings, beads, brooches, earrings, medallions — all this splendor involves the use of a variety of materials in their manufacture.
Modern production offers bijouterie and jewelry made of precious metals, plastic, wood, glass, stone and even clay. Features of choice in this case depend solely on the woman herself. Only she can decide what best suits her chosen style — an expensive ring with a luxurious diamond for a social event or a bright plastic trinket for the beach. And it often happens that a woman likes jewelry so much that it literally “sticks” to her body.
In other words, a ring, earrings or a chain with a pendant is worn for months, or even years, without being removed. How harmless is it to the health of the body and is it worth wearing jewelry or jewelry on yourself for so long? A competent answer to this question can be given by specialists from the field of dermatology, since all jewelry has direct contact with human skin.
What should be feared?
Maria Peredo, a dermatologist at the New York Hospital who works with many Hollywood celebrities, believes that you can wear your favorite chain, ring and earrings for a long time. But there is nothing to worry about if the jewelry can be cleaned regularly. However, regarding jewelry, she has a radically opposite opinion. Maria claims that such jewelry often causes allergies in the form of peeling or redness of the skin, so they must be removed every evening before going to bed or immediately after the end of the working day.
In addition to allergies, there is another concept known as jewelry sensitivity. The skin of different women reacts differently to the same product. You should also not adhere to the very common opinion that gold and silver jewelry are hypoallergenic and cannot cause skin sensitivity. The fact is that most jewelry contains additives of other raw materials, to which the skin may react inadequately. Therefore, in this case, the approach to the choice of products should be strictly individual.
Top five pieces of jewelry that are usually worn for a very long time
We wanted to list the jewelry that, as a rule, women do not like to part with for a long time:
- Earrings in the form of carnations.
The convenient design of these products makes it possible to securely fix it on the earlobe and “forget” about it for a long time. The design features of most of these earrings allow them to fit perfectly with any style of clothing.
- Chain with a cross.
A pectoral cross — a talisman against evil spirits, is worn by many from birth after the rite of Baptism. The church recommends not to take off either before going to bed, or even while taking water procedures.
- Wedding ring.
This symbol of fidelity and marriage is worn by newlyweds and older people in love, thus confirming their status as a married person.
- Small pendant.
Very often, such jewelry is worn even under clothing, without showing off. Especially popular are medallions with a lid, where you can hide a small photo of a loved one or child as a keepsake.
- Bracelet in the form of a chain.
Elegant and versatile, such jewelry is suitable for any hand and almost any outfit.
Whether or not to remove a chain or a ring before going to bed is up to you. At the same time, it is worth citing interesting statistics on this matter. It has been proven that most of the damage and loss of jewelry occurs during sleep. And who knows, maybe for you it will become a weighty enough argument to put your favorite thing on the dressing table before going to bed.
