@FutureMrsMeinhardt: I always have the same problem with costume rings. I’m curious to know if the paint thing works!

I can’t wait ’til I can afford real jewelry.

You can coat the rings with nail polish or polyurethane.

You can also swipe a ring of anti-perspirant on your finger as the perspiration can makes the reaction worse.

the clear nail polish works… it also helps if you have alergies to metal (which I do!) 🙂

I think it does depend on your body chemistry.  I’ve had really good luck with my stunt double that is rhodium-plated sterling silver.

I used to work at claires, unfortunately it will happen because its costume jewellery,designed to be worn for short periods of time. BUT the clear nail polish trick does work,if a bit tricky to put it on. Just pop a layer on,but let it dry completely (like leave it an hour or so) otherwise your hand will heat up any nail varnish that isnt completely dry and make it sticky, good luck!!

I got my stunt ring from Overstock, in sterling silver.  They have many for under $20 if you’re interested in going that route.

nail polish does work. I’ve used it on earings. It will need to be retouched after a while to cover any chipped spots.

Toothpaste will help get the green off your finger.  Also, the clear nail polish does seem to help, but you do need to do more than one coat.

Try vinegar or lemon juice.  They are supposed to help remove green copper stains.
