Green Lantern Signet Ring in Antique Bronze
This is a handmade Green Lantern signet ring in antique bronze I created per request. The top of the ring long and is 1.2cm and 1.4cm wide layer with a 5mm recessed hole that inside is colored with green metal enamel. The top sits 4mm high off the hand. The shank at the base is 3mm wide. I will also be offering to make this ring in sterling silver as well. This ring takes 1-2 weeks to made as this is made to size when ordered.
Bronze is an alloy that consists of a mixture of approximately 90% copper and 10% tin. Producing bronze is a less toxic process than producing brass as brass is a combination of copper and zinc, and the manufacturing process often produces zinc oxide which is toxic.
Because bronze contains copper, it can turn your skin green whether you have an allergy or not. Bronze and copper turn your skin green because when the copper reacts with your sweat and the acids from your skin, it produces copper chloride. Copper chloride is a green substance that then rubs off on your skin. If you are prone to sweating, your bronze jewelry will definitely turn your skin green. This chemical reaction can also be prevented by painting any part of the jewelry that comes in contact with your skin with clear nail polish or clear acrylic enamel.
