About Copper Jewelry
Benefits – Copper is thought to relieve arthritis and circulation problems. On a holistic level it is considered a grounding metal for the human body and spirit.
Will it turn my skin?
It depends on several factors – body chemistry, skin sensitivity, skin products. Copper reacts with oxygen in the air along with your sweat and skin oils which can cause skin discoloration on some individuals.
Bracelets have air circulation between your wrist and the bracelet thus doesn't seem to produce as much discoloration of your skin. If you wear a copper bracelet or cuff that is tight against the skin, then most likely you'll have discoloration much like a ring.
Pendants worn over your clothes won't discolor because they aren't in contact with your sweat or skin oils. Pendants worn against the skin tend to move causing air circulation between the pendant and your skin. Unless you're a sweaty and oily person and jewelry tends to stick to your skin, you shouldn't have any discoloration.
I coat all rings with a layer of Renaissance wax, which helps prevent skin discoloration. This coating will eventually wear off, you can maintain this coat by applying a thin later of good quality car wax.
