*Our jewelry can get wet because it is high quality .925 sterling silver. But, we do not recommend it! Our jewelry will never turn your skin green. Although, over long periods of time precious metals oxidize through water exposure because of minerals in water. To preserve the quality over long period of time we suggest minimizing getting jewelry wet. :)*
