This is not unusual on a new silver or gold ring. Please read below.
Don’t panic, this “green or black finger effect” is a reaction to the copper alloy in the sterling silver especially if you have high body acidity. It happens to about 2-3% of people and percentage is increasing due to increased percentages of chemicals in our environment and food we eat.
Sometimes these reactions are occasional and happen when someone eats something with high acidity like tomatoes, if someone is taking certain medications, or due to excitement.
Soaking the ring for a day or two in a 50/50 mixture of household ammonia and water will take care of the problem.
Another solution is to simply clean the ring every day with a silver polishing cloth. After about a week or two, the reaction will stop occurring
Applying a layer of Jeweler’s Skin Guard (which we can provide for you) on the inside of the ring will prevent perspiration & body sweat from reaching the metal and reacting to it. Clear nail polish will also work.
Keep your skin dry when wearing jewelry. Remove ring before showering, sleeping, exercising, strenuous activities, or using cleaning products.
Keep your jewelry clean. If the piece begins to tarnish, clean it immediately.
This should solve your problem.
