Jewellery Turing green
The most common culprit for these green and black stains is copper. Some jewellery can be all copper, but most of the time it is a copper alloy mixed with gold. Also, some people’s body chemistry makes them much more prone to get these green discolorations.
This explains why two people can wear the same gold jewellery and exhibit very different reactions.
Avoid areas that perspire
Any type of moisture, especially sweat, tends to speed up the chemical reaction. If you can, try to avoid wearing jewellery near parts of your body that sweat a lot. Also, try not to wear jewellery while exercising or in high stress situations. This should go a long way towards limiting the amount of discoloration you see.
Don’t go swimming with your jewellery
Chlorine has a strong reaction with copper. Avoid swimming with your jewelry on at all costs.
No household cleaners while wearing your jewellery
Many household cleansers contain chlorine to help disinfect while cleaning. Even in small amounts, this chlorine will often produce a reaction with your gold jewelry.
Wear your jewellery for shorter periods of time
This is mostly common sense but it should be said. The less time your jewelry is in
contact with your skin, the less likely you will end up with green discoloration.
Are you getting a red, itchy rash from your jewellery?
If your jewellery is giving you an itchy rash, you probably have an allergy to one of the metals in your piece. Please check for allergies to artificial jewellery before you purchase or wear them. Aithihya Timeless Collections will not be responsible for any reactions as we will not be able to know your skin conditions.
