My gf has reactions to gold, silver, etc and does not wear jewelry. What should I get for our engagement?

It has been verified medically so I know it's not just some random "I don't want a ring, etc". So a traditional ring is out of the question as are alternative metals such as titanium. I really want to do something for her that shows I want to spend the rest of my life together with her and that I was considerate about her needs.

    If she is up for it, you could get matching tattooed rings, but that would probably be best suited for the actual wedding, not the engagement. If she likes nature could you donate to a park and have something sweet put on a plaque next to a tree? Or maybe plant a tree for her. Maybe go online and purchase a star with her first name and your last name, or just her name, or hypothetically “Julie” my love or something. That is about all I can think of right now. Congratulations!

    Find something really nice that is timeless and would appeal to her. As a musician, an instrument would mean the world to me. Artists could appreciate a great and well made easel, some sort of antique piece of furniture, etc. Just play off of her interests and I’m sure you’ll find something wonderful

    One of my old high school friends just got an engagement cat. Not kidding… her new fiance is severely allergic, so he bought her one of those special hypoallergenic cats. They have a deal: every 10 years, she gets a new cat!

    Here’s an idea… gather her friends/family together for an evening out, and then arrange a picture with you and your gf in the middle. As the photographer takes the picture, have them say, “Everyone say, ‘Kane’s about to pop the question!” Then you’ll have a picture of the look on her face when she realizes you’re proposing!

    So, instead of an engagement ring, you can give her an engagement moment. =)

    I searched for some ideas and came up with a article about men’s wedding rings and thought ‘why not women’s” as well.

    I hope this helps.

    what about platinum? im allergic to silver, yellow/white gold as well. platinum is suppose to be great for those with metal allergens.

    Maybe you could get wedding band tattoos. If she is up for that. Here’s some pics.
    Or maybe you could get here something really special. What does she enjoy?

    I’ve also got skin allergies and platinum was recommended and so far I’ve had no reactions. Ask your gf’s doctor about it as well, he might know some other metals that could work.

    There’s no hard and fast rule that it has to be a ring though. I know a couple who got engaged with a Persian carpet, the bride works with pottery clay so she’d never wear a ring anyways so they went and chose a carpet together. You could also buy a nice piece of furniture (works well if she likes antiques), perhaps a bed, a show-case or a dressing table or a desk if she uses one a lot (works from home etc).

    If you’re really not sure then propose without a ring (it’s allowed) and ask her what she wants for the engagement.

    Good luck.

    Platinum, though every expensive, is supposed to be hypoallergenic. But you must get only high purity Platinum of a minimum of 95%. There is usually a stamp on the inside of the ring, 950 Pt.

    The other alternative is Palladium. It is in the same family of metals as Platinum but much less expensive. It is lighter than Platinum so it doesn’t have the weightiness to it that some people like about Platinum.

    Good luck.

    Platinum is said to be the metal that causes the fewest allergies, but surgical steel is guaranteed. Also, pure gold is rarely allergenic, but when it’s blended with metals that make it strong enough to wear that’s the problem.
    So get a ring made of surgical steel. If it’s hypoallergenic enough to insert inside a person’s body, it’s OK for a finger ring.

    You don’t need to get her a traditional metal ring. That said, there’s still some ring options out there.

    Try a ring made of stone:

    Or try a jade ring:

    I hope you find something you both like. I wish you the best of luck!
