Bead Copper

Is it safe to use nickel on an amber babies teething ring?

I'm interested in purchasing amber teething rings for babies. I have seen some from India which include nickel on the mouthpiece and decorative amber beads. I was told nickel is a safe metal and we require small amounts in the body like copper and zinc. Is the information I've been given true or false?

I doubt it is safe for babies to chew on. Many people have a nickel allergy - this is why a lot of jewellery is now marked 'nickel-free' - and it can cause a severe rash on contact. (I have this allergy and cannot wear some types of jewellery, watches, or even jeans where the button comes into contact with my skin without getting an itchy raised rash.) My opinion would be that it is not appropriate for teething rings, especially as many people like to sterilise these for their babies - I doubt that being immersed in sterilising fluid would do the amber much good either.
