Why Is My Finger Turning Green?

"Green finger" is a reaction to the metal alloys added to genuine silver and gold. As most precious metals are too soft to be used alone in jewellery making, alloys are added to provide the strength and rigidity needed to make durable pieces. Some people are more sensitive to the presence of these alloys, and experience discoloration of the skin as a result. In most cases, this reaction will stop after a day or two. In order to remove the green coloring from both your finger and your ring, we advise washing each separately with mild soap and water, and allowing your hands and your jewellery to dry completely before wearing again.
