How do i keep my sterling silver ring from turning green/turning my finger green?

Answer

There are a couple of things you can do to stop your ring and finger from turning green. If you are short on cash you can use a clear nail polish and paint a few layers on the inside of the ring. This will keep the ring protected. It will wear with time so repaint as needed. If you can afford it take the ring to a jeweler and have it dipped in a silver plating.
