maybe i'm searching for the wrong thing, cuz i can only find info on sealing or on copper. but what i want to know is...what type of metal ring bases will NOT turn your finger green?

I want to buy some bases and have found several sellers on etsy. Some say "silver wash", some say Silver "tone", nickel-free "silvery white", silver "plated"....etc, etc

and all i have now is a migraine, but no clue! Smiley  so can someone please tell me which one do i spend my money on if i don't want green fingers....or tell me what an idiot i am for missing the obvious threads that include this topic!

i'm also hoping one of these etsy sellers (cuz i'd rather give my money to them than big biz) have something that will save my phlanges and not require special coating Smiley

it's generally the copper in an alloy that will turn your finger green. Any way you can find out what the metal composition is?
