I had a copper ring once, it turned my finger green…. never again for me.  I coated the inside with clear nail polish and that helped a little, but not enough for me to want to deal with it.

I’m not an expert, but I think copper is very soft. Like the other person said, it may turn green over time and will definietly make your fingers green. I used to wear a lot of cheap rings that probably had copper in them, and they started getting green.

 

Rose gold might be a good alternative. I’m sure a jeweler could try to match a coppery color, or they can use a copper-based metal that’s stronger.

I have a piece of jewelry- a bracelet I LOVED- that turned my wrist green in that way. For awhile I was coating the inside with nail polish and this helped…for a VERY short period of time.  I was having to do this what felt like constantly and eventually I started avoiding wearing the piece to avoid to aggravation of recoating it.  I would say don’t waste your money.
