Nickel is pervasive, found in more things than even we can imagine!  

We are often learning of something new that is causing a nickel reaction. Who knew that many brands of razors contain nickel that will certainly contact the skin each time they are used? While leading experts say skin irritation from razors is more likely caused by the friction from the razor, there are some instances where nickel has been identified as the trigger causing the rash.


We've personally experienced the itch from tweezer usage, and especially from eyelash curlers where the eyelid skin is so delicate that it is easily inflamed. Since this problem was hitting close to home, a little research has uncovered nickel free eyelash curlers and tweezers that come with rave reviews for doing an excellent job without causing any skin irritation. Just an internet search revealed several products worth a try!

Our new sterling silver posts are getting lots of attention, not just for the cute designs, but for the fact that these earrings have been tested and come with our Certified Nickel Free™ guarantee to never cause a nickel allergy rash!

How to Measure Your Belt Size

Most of our belts are sized from the Buckle Fold to the Middle Hole. A 36” belt will have a center hole at 36” and two holes on either side of the center spaced 1” apart each. A 36” belt can be worn as small as 34” and as big as 38”.

There are several options to determine your ideal belt size.

The ideal way is to measure your waist through your belt loops. This measurement is the size of belt you should purchase (i.e. if you have a 34” measurement, order a 34” belt).

An alternative option is to measure your old belt from the  Buckle Fold to the Hole you use. If your belt measures 38” from buckle fold to the hole you use most; then order a 38” belt. This will give you a belt with 2 holes either side of the hole you use most.
