My fiance and I will be having my wedding ring made in another month or so and I’m dead set on getting a 3 stone rose gold ring. I’m not allergic to copper but am slightly concerned about the dreaded green skin (from sweating and oxidation, etc). I know it will probably depend on how much copper is used (pink, rose or red gold) but if you have a rose gold ring or know someone that does–should I be concerned??

I have never heard of this happening (with the exception of cheapy copper or fake gold rings), but that is actually a great question, because depending on your body’s natural chemistry (acidity especially) and even whether or not your body is copper-deficient, copper can chelate in a reaction with your body’s sweat, leaving a mark. However, I am fairly certain that there would not be enough copper in a rose gold ring to cause this reaction unless the gold content was VERY low. Like 9k. My ring is 18k and I highly doubt I will ever see it leave a mark on my skin. hope that helps!
