@soontobesmith87:  What is it plated with? Is it sterling silver? Before I got engaged, I had a sterling silver claddaugh ring that I wore 24/7 for nearly 5 years. I never ever took it off – it was on my hands in water, dish detergent, chlorinated pools, etc.

Now it was pretty banged up by the time I stopped wearing it, and the shank had thinned considerably, but it never turned by finger any color at all. I don’t believe silver ever should.

@soontobesmith87:  

@missmess:  +1

 

I’ve been wearing silver rings for years, and I’ve never had a problem wearing them on a daily basis (aside from them being a bit easier to ding if you smack them on something). They definitely shouldn’t turn your finger green.

@BotticelliLove:  It might depend on the plating, though. I’ve never had a silver ring that’s been plated with anything.

@soontobesmith87:  I had a silver promise ring from my now-FI and wore it pretty continuously for a little under 2 years. I had to polish it every month or so and it is seriously scratched and dinged, but it certainly never discoloured my fingers.

You should be fine, but I would make sure to wear gloves when using hair color 🙂

@soontobesmith87:  If that’s what the seller said then yes, it’ll probably get damaged from tons of soap and water on a regular basis.

Yeah, that is not a long term ring. 

If you are ok going with sterling silver I seriously recommend Berricle.com.

@soontobesmith87:  it will def turn green. You need a solid .925 silver ring. Theyre faicry cheap so you may want to return the plated ring

To the OP: I’m glad your reconsidering and going with .925. I’ve had many types of silver rings over  the years and have been able to consistently wear a Tiffany silver promise ring without an issue. But any experiences I’ve had with silver+copper rings have been bad, bc not only do they tarnish and turn green but no matter what you do–after years of polishing the metal begins to breakdown and the composition changes. You don’t want to deal with that.
