Holy Cow! My mom must be like you. For years now I've been wondering what the hell she has been doing to her jewelry. She once insisted on taking back my grandmother's gold and diamond ring that she passed on to me when I was 20. She had never worn it that I ever knew of since the ring was petite and she was not. I was really upset but she decided she was not ready to pass it to me after all. A few months after she got it back, for whatever reason she decided to wear it. She jammed it on her skinniest finger somehow. Then I didn't see it again on her anymore. I looked in her jewelry box and it was blackened and twisted and I could not imagine what the hell happened to it. I questioned her and she insisted she did nothing to it but wear it. I insisted that it must have gotten stuck and she must have done something to pull it off and didn't want to fess up but she swore up and down she did nothing and it just "turned" like that. I swore up and down she was a liar. We are usually close but that was not a good time between us back then. I looked at her other jewelry and they all looked really badly used up. I assumed she must have just not taken her rings off when working with bleach or something.

I got one on ya - I can't wear cheap watches because unless they're really really well sealed, my sweat/oil will ooze into the back and corrode it like a bad battery.
And I tear up expensive ones at work.
Also can't wear a ring unless it's 24k, any base metal to any extent and I'll rot that thing and the finger too.
I was beloved in the Army for my ability to polish brass buttons with my fingers. All I have to do is rub them and they shine, but you have to wipe them down with a cloth or they'll go green in a few days. I can also rot the blue off a rifle or sidearm, and my sweat peels the lacquer off of saxophones.

The most paranormal thing electric wise I've encountered personally is electric devices stay on in my presence even when unplugged. Radios, TV sets, laptops, and most other small devices.
Also: no matter what vehicle I drive, I always get a strong shock when I touch the outter frame. Feels like I'm touching a cow fence.
