i worn silver before in high school and never had a problem now recently ive tried wearing some old chains, and some new ones and my necks breaking up.......does that make sense? did i just developed an allergy

WRONG. Pure silver is about 99% pure. Sterling silver is 92% pure, the other 8% is made up of alloy metals, possibly containing nickel depending on the grade of sterling silver. Allergies to sterling silver are typically due to the nickel & alloy metals present in that 8%, but are very rare. I have a nickel allergy but can where sterling silver with no issues.

Sorry. I meant to say fine silver is 99.9% pure*

I just got some sterling silver earrings and worn them for three days now my ear is sore. Does this mean I'm allergic to them? As a kid I could only wear gold but I thought I had grown out of that.
