Okay.... you more than likely are not actually allergic to gold. This is a common misconception by people with allergies to nickel which is sometimes present in the gold. You would have an easier time looking up "nickel" allergies. Talk to a jeweler about hypoallergenic gold or buying gold greater than 9k which usually has less of the nickel alloys. The higher the karats the less likely an allergic reaction will occur.
