Reminds me of my nickel allergy and choosing a ring. Most jewelry is made of an alloy. I've had reactions to various random metals due to their nickel content. What saves the day? Rhodium coating. Done to white gold to make it more white, and can sometimes even be found in regular cheap-ish jewelery to make it look shinier. Total life-saver.

They could have the ring plated at a jeweler. As a bonus, it won't tarnish.

Nah. I've seen enough "creative translations" which were basically complete rewrites (mostly end of 19ct to about the 50s) and it's really not that deep.

Besides, publishers are independent companies looking out for their bottom line. That's comically incomparable to a government agency supporting an authoritarian regime.
