In general, no. Stainless steel is designed for strength and durability, with its high resistance to corrosion being one of its primary attributes, and nickel is a key element in the alloy that helps provide this. Although stainless steel can be made without nickel, it is fairly uncommon, and most stainless steel will contain between 8% - 12% nickel (the higher the grade, on average the higher the nickel content).
This will also contain nickel - in fact, stainless steel can't be classed as a surgical grade without it. 'Surgical' steel is actually more of a trade name for stainless steel of particular grades (also known as 'marine grade' steel). The most common available 'surgical' grades are 316 and 316L (the L is to indicate a lower carbon content). This grade of steel is designed to have the highest resistance to corrosion, therefore it also tends to have a higher nickel content (up to 12%).
Technically, stainless steel can qualify as hypoallergenic (meaning: low risk of causing an allergic reaction), as although nickel is one of the most common causes of allergic reactions from jewellery, it is bonded to other elements in the alloy and generally won't leech on to the skin. However, some people with a high sensitivity to nickel can still have a reaction to stainless steel, so I do not personally classify it as hypoallergenic.
I offer products in a range of different grades, but the most common is 304. I also have products in 201, 202, 316 and 316L grades - you'll find the grade for each item is listed at the very top of every description, so you can make an informed decision about the products.
Each grade of steel has differences between the elements used to make them. 201 grade steel has a lower nickel and higher manganese content, it is also harder and stronger. Products in the store that are often made from 201 steel include thin filigree stampings, and some of the blank tags.

304 grade steel is a versatile and general purpose steel, and is widely used for many products - most of the items I currently sell are made with this grade. It will contain an average of 8% nickel, and provides all of the most desired attributes for stainless steel.

316 grade steel is very similar to 304, but molybdenum is added to increase the metal's resistance to corrosion, particularly due to salt water or chlorine exposure.
All products and components used in the handmade supplies that are available in the store are currently made in China.
