Various manufacturers uses different quantities of nickel in their metal mix. That’s why you can have 2 identical pieces of jewelry… one that is fine and one that causes you to break out in a rash.
The reaction may appear as an uncomfortable, itchy, red rash that usually shows up between 12 and 48 hours after first contact with the metal. The affected area is usually restricted to the site of contact, but it can sometimes be found on other parts of the body as well.
Once a nickel allergy has developed, people will likely have this same reaction every time the metal touches their skin.
