I gather and make each Nature Gem myself, constructing beautiful rings from my collection of organic treasures. This ring has lichen covered bark tucked away, engulfed by luscious copper.
SIZE: 7 1/2 US
Antiqued copper to bring out the details of the Nature Gem.
Depending on your body chemistry, copper can discolor your skin leaving a green or black shadow where the jewelry sits on the skin. This is non-harmful! This does not mean something is wrong with the ring! It's the chemical reaction from your skin and the copper. Copper reacts naturally with our salty skin, a reaction that's created whenever we sweat. Copper can also react to acidic environments, including YOU- your body acidity is related to your diet. Junk food, processed food, and lots of red meat will make your body more acidic.
The more acidic your diet and body is, the more discoloration of the skin from your copper jewelry. Meaning... the more likely you are to get sick.
This can make copper jewelry a terrific way to gauge whether or not you need to change your diet or if you’re just on the cusp of coming down with something.
So, the color that you will see, will depend on your very own body chemistry. -FUN!
