For me, copper turns my skin green (and will even more so if there’s soap residue or lotion on my hands).  I’ve never had anything turn me black though (just green).  And rose gold has never discolored me at all, but I also might not have ever worn 10k rose gold.  When I used to wear copper (I now wear rose gold instead), I would coat the parts that touched me with clear nail polish once a week or so to keep it from turning me green.  I’m not sure exactly what your situation is though since it’s black and not green and doesn’t happen regularly.

I can’t really help except to say that my 14K rose gold ring has never turned my finger any sort of color.  I would bring it in to the jeweler and show them, they might know why this is happening.

HRRF:  I don’t think it’s fake gold since it is from a reputable place.  Plus, everyone’s skin is different and some just react to certain metals. I would take it to a jeweler to see if they can put a protective coating on it.

HRRF:  what happened at the jeweler?? I would have gotten it checked for sure.

I have actually never heard of that happening before, and I work at a jeweller. You must have very reactive skin.

I have a 10k rose gold ring,  and I have not experienced any discoloration. My finger does turn green/black from brass or copper jewellery after just a couple of minutes. My mom can wear anything and her finger never discolors.

Rode gold is regular (yellow) gold mixed with copper and other metals to make it look pink.  So at 10k you have 1/3 yellow gold and 2/3 copper/ other meTals. It seems like you having a reaction to the copper.  

 

my mom has a bad nickel reaction and white gold use to be made with nickel so she couldn’t wear anything less then 18k (3/4 gold) otherwise it was too much nickel.

It must be a reaction to the other metals in your ring.
