Can I wear the Gollum TM Gold One Ring TM on my finger?
A: We don't suggest it. The ring is cast in bronze which will have a natural reaction with the sweat in your hands which will cause your finger to turn green. These rings are intended to be worn as pendants, not as an actual ring. These rings are only available in one size.

The silver ring I bought has turned my finger green (or black)? What's the deal?
A: Don't panic, the ring is solid sterling silver. This "green finger effect" is an allergic reaction to the sterling silver and happens to about 1 in 60 people. Solid silver is much too soft to make jewelry from, so the silver is alloyed at refineries with a small amount of copper. The copper is what is causing this reaction. Most retail jewelry is rhodium plated (rhodium is a form or platinum), which prevents this reaction from happening to anyone with the allergy, but the plating can complicate future ring sizing by a jeweler.

One solution is to simply clean the ring every day with a jewelry polishing cloth.. After about a week or two, the reaction will stop occurring. If this doesn't resolve your problem, contact us for information on haing us rhodium plate the ring for you. There is a small fee to cover shipping and handling.

A: Yes, these are considered Special Order Items and are not returnable or refundable.
