Calcium deposits in my bones caused by platinum ring





August 14, 2010

I had my sapphire and diamond wedding ring and bad reset in platinum; after 4 years my ring finger started to swell and I could not wear my rings without having cortisone shot in the ring finger. I went to a hand specialist who took x-rays and said I had calcium deposits in the ring finger and only in the ring finger isn't it odd? Do you think there is a connection?

Hi, Clorinda.

I don't think the sapphire or the diamond or the platinum caused this. I assume that wearing a ring can contribute to the problem through the pressure and rubbing on your knuckle, etc. But I think your hand specialist is a much better person to ask than me :-)

I hate to mention bad news, but you are four years older than you were when you wore your old setting.
