Are they white gold? You may have an allergy to one of the alloys that was typically covered by rhodium plaTing. This may have worn down if your hands are more sweaty now! Try getting your rings replated

bowsergirl:  It could be that your skin is reacting to something different in the water where you live now. Or to a different soap, if you had to change brands. If you seldom remove your rings, water and soap can get under them when you wash your hands, and it can cause irritation. I have had this problem just moving from one part of the US to another. (I have really sensitive skin …)

Anyhow, hope this helps.

Have you had your rings cleaned recently? Sounds to me you have a chemical on the rings (either from a cleaning, lotion, soap, etc), and it’s now causing irritation. I would get them cleaned, and make sure to rinse them thoroughly before wearing! Hope it clears up

longtimemrs:  That’s what i was going to suggest. 

Make sure when you wash your hands, you take the rings off or dry them and the skin under them thoroughly
