  • Some people just react to certain metals. I get the same reaction to silver

  • Paint the inside with clear nail polish. Problem solved.

  • If it's stamped .925, it IS real silver. Sounds like you just had a reaction to it. Paint the inside with clear nail polish, take it off when you wash your hands, shower or swim and you should be fine.

  • It IS Sterling Silver. If you have a lot of acid in your system it can turn your skin green. It's a chemical reaction. Normal. Do what they said above with the clear nail polish.
