Ever wondered why some people say rings turn their fingers green?
Some people think that your ring turns green because it's not real silver. This is actually not the case at all. The ring turns your finger green because of a chemical reaction with moisture on your skin and the alloys in the metal. This moisture can be as simple as water, sweat or humidity.

You will have a similar reaction, aka oxidation, when you wear a copper ring as well. The green finger or tarnish is common with copper and copper is an alloy commonly used in silver, so you can see a connection with sterling silver and a green finger.

Again, most people assume that if your finger turns green or your ring tarnishes, that the ring is not genuine sterling silver. The opposite is true because acids that cause the silver to oxidize, which are commonly found in the air, water, lotions, soaps, produce a reaction and cause tarnish. This can leave a dark ring or green on your finger.

Now that you know why it happens, you can easily avoid having a green finger by following some simple care steps.

Alternate metals: A lot of people are busy and don't want to bother with care on of their jewelry, so they think that avoiding silver will avoid tarnish. Everything you purchase requires special care. White gold requires rhodium plating every 6 months, platinum requires polishing and is a very soft metal, so it requires care and tends to lose stones, etc. Any precious metal you select with require care. There are some metals that do not tarnish, such as stainless steel. They do not tarnish, however they have drawbacks as well. Stainless steel cannot be cut off if your finger swells and does have some dangers.

Coatings to help avoid a green finger: A trick which is not widely known is to coat the inside of your ring with clear nail polish. Clear nail polish, preferably a few layers, will provide a barrier between the ring and your skin so the ring will not tarnish or turn your finger green.

Avoidance: The saying, "Prevention is the best medicine" applies to avoiding a green finger in silver. If you can remember to take off your ring when washing your hands, in the pools, cleaning, etc, tarnish should not be an issue. Avoiding these things will help prevent tarnish.



Thank you and enjoy.

PLEASE NOTE that pictures are deliberately taken to show detail in my pieces. The jewelry will look larger in the pictures than it actually is in real life. The natural colors of stones and inclusion also needs to be taken into consideration. Please see the piece description for true measurements/sizing and refer to a ruler if needed.

    My work is an extension of who I am. I love nature and wildlife and I try to create pieces that reflect that. I use in my jewelry making lots of textures, and add color with the gemstones I gather from around the world.
