This discoloration is not permanent (it washes off) and varies from person to person (the copper reacts differently on different people).

STORE your jewelry in a zip-locking type bag once completely dry. You can add a small charcoal type pouch to keep humidity away if you live in more humid climates. These are the types found in shoe boxes, purses, etc.
