Will this turn my skin green?

Ever wonder what the green imprint is when you take off your favorite ring? Don't worry! It won’t harm you and will typically disappear after a few hours. The reason your skin turns green is actually a normal reaction to brass. It is an alloy of copper and zinc and will naturally tarnish when exposed to oxygen or moisture. Everyone’s body chemistry is different, and metals will react in different ways. This is caused by either the product on your fingers or just your fingers themselves. If you want to stop getting the green finger, we’ve got a few solutions to help.

Our first and most important rule - don’t get it wet! Moisture is the number one culprit so we recommend taking off your rings before washing and applying any product. Try not to use any lotion or soap while you have your ring on. Also, taking off your ring before showers, bedtime or swimming can help too. Keeping your fingers dry will prevent the copper in the ring from oxidizing faster, so your ring won't be ruined. 

If all else fails, we suggest buying rings made from different materials. Stainless steel, platinum, pure gold/silver, golf fill, gold-plated and rhodium-plated rings aren't susceptible to discoloration problems. Although they can be much more expensive, in the long run, these rings will be good investments because their good condition can be maintained for a long time.
