Could be the percentage of nickel that they use in white gold. I also can't wear less than 14k - any color, or anything less than sterling silver. Having a reaction to nickel is very common. I still have to wear 14k in my ears - if I don't, they start itching within an hour or so. Really a bummer since they have such awesome earrings out now! On less than 14k rings I used to wear, I'd put clear nail polish on the inside of the ring - eliminated the rash. Unfortunately, that's hard to do on a necklace!
