If you have any concerns about wearing brass and/or copper jewelry for fear of oxidization and turning your skin green, here are some care instructions that will prevent this:
Wipe your jewelry piece with a soft cloth before you put it on or after you take it off. This is the easiest way to keep your brass or copper jewelry clean and to protect them from oxidation. Oxidation is what turns your skin colors. Keep your copper jewelry clean, it's as simple as that! Treat your copper jewelry as you would your expensive pieces of jewelry; wipe it with a clean soft cloth before putting it on or after taking it off. Personally, I wash mine in dish washing detergent at least once a week if I'm wearing them often. This helps remove skin care products, perspiration and oils from your skin which can contribute to the oxidation and dull their glowing shine. Be careful not to expose pearls or gems to the detergent.
