Have you ever had engagement rings or a necklace that turns your skin yellow you've most likely asked yourself why that happens. Most Often ~ there is a reaction caused by the metal in the jewelry to just about everyone who wears inexpensive jewelry. This occurs to some faster than others~ though, because our individual chemical makeups are different.
Even the more expensive jewelry can turn people's skin green; reason being even the expensive stuff isnt pure<, no matter how much it costs. Platinum is one metal that usually doesn't react with skin so not to fear if you buy platinum jewelry. To keep gold jewelry reacting to your skin be sure its not gold plated or gold rinsed jewelry – the base metal might be cheap and then covered with gold that will wear off. For jewelry made from solid gold choosing a higher karat will lower your chances of green skin. Copper will almost always turn your skin green and there isn't a whole lot you can do about that.
Avoid wearing jewelry when you're sweating a lot it can amplify the skin to metal reaction and also ask your jeweler if there is anything that he can coat the jewelry item with – to guard your skin from the reaction. If you do this you can wear inexpensive jewelry whenever you want. Remember- the green effect won't hurt you. It's simply a reaction and not an allergy.
Metal allergic reactions will make you red plus it could also make your skin feel itchy and inflamed. Which is a far cry from green skin. If you do show signs of allery stop wearing the jewelry. Green skin shouldnt scare you ore keep you from wearing your favorite pieces just be sure to keep the skin clean to avoid having it look bad.
All in all applying a coating is probably the answer.
