Mood Ring

It's probably nickel, but I'm not sure. It is a cheap mood ring. The surprising thing is that I only wore it for a few hours.

Ring Turned My Finger Black

I was on Marco Island, sitting in the water at the beach all day, while digging for shells with my hands. The spot was at the edge of the water, so when I would dig down, my hands were under water. Well, I was wearing my wedding band and wedding diamond that day. They are both 14 carat yellow gold. I have had these rings for 9 yrs. at the time and NEVER had any type of discoloration at all. When I came in to take a shower is when I noticed that my finger turned a blackish - grey color. Pretty weird since I've worn the rings many times in that same water and never had a discoloration. Maybe it was a reaction from the shells since I basically had small shells in my hands for hours, just scooping away as I sat at the water's edge in my beach chair, talking up a storm with my mother in law.

Copper Turns Me Green

As far as I know, the only metal that turns my finger green is copper. It's not toxic. Actually, I think it's supposed to be therapeutic for some conditions. However, it is not attractive. It has to wear off rather than wash off.
