My Finger Is Turing Green!

Copper can create an oxidation reaction on your skin. This is not because the wearer is allergic. What happens is the alloy combined with oxygen in the air, perspiration, natural oils on the skin even lotion, creates a layer of copper carbonate which makes the skin look green. No worries. It will usually disappear within a few hours. You can even remove it with soap and water, rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover.

How do I keep this from happening?

We do not coat our copper pieces. To help prevent the green, you can coat the inside of your ring with clear nail polish, or any area of the piece that comes in contact with your skin. Let dry. The nail polish will naturally wear off over time and will need to be reapplied.

You can even use a clear acrylic lacquer or even car wax.
