My finger is turning green! Why?

I noticed today that my finger underneath my wedding ring is green. The ring is not fake. I've never had a problem with it until today. Whay would it all the sudden turn my finger green after three years? Does it have something to do with being pregnant?

It is probably the hormones in your body due to pregnancy.

Acid may also be the reason your ring finger is changing colors.

It doesn't mean the ring is a fake, your body makes changes when pregnant.  Since you are pregnant, your body may be producing more acid than the norm.

Hope this helps...

It might be something to do with your Iron levels as that used to happen to my sister

Are the iron levels too high or low?? I wouldn't imagine they are too high, especially in pregnancy, but who knows. Thanks.

I'd guess it has to do with the pregnancy hormones and what not.  Considering all of the other wacky skin things that can happen during pregnancy I wouldn't think this was too far off.  Check on the iron thing too though.  I thought that was a myth, but it's probably worth checking out.

It is probably that your ring is just gold plated rather than solid gold,does it have a stamp on it? you can buy cleaning products for gold plated jewelry that should sort it.

Mine does the same time sometimes. it's not doing it now, but duringth summer it was pretty bad. My Dad ownes a jewlery store. He said a lot of women do it. i agree with the iron. Also gold is made up of 2 things. Can't remember what. While pg. you may  be more affected by one.
