STORAGE AND CARE INSTRUCTION: Copper Oxidation occurs in acidic environment when it contacts with sweat gland. Green Deposit is not bad: It is a fact that our body needs copper and can get it from food like milk, nuts, seafood and yummy chocolate. If you wear copper jewelry and it leaves a green deposit, your body will also absorb it and put it at good use. For storage remove it and store it in a Velvet bag and close properly using tightening rope on it to reduce the tarnishing effect. It also helps to keep bright copper shiny i.e. remove any beginning oxidation by cleaning it regularly. Ketchup, vinegar or lemon juice works. Alternatively you can use renaissance wax to protect the jewelry though this is not the permanent solution.
