Does Sterling Silver Tarnish?

Yes, sterling silver will tarnish.

But never fear, it is very simple to clean sterling silver.

Otherwise known as oxidising, tarnish will form on sterling silver as it reacts to impurities in the environment.
Atmospheric pollution from industrial processes will contribute to a build-up of silver oxide, seen as a black tarnish.

In combination with other metals, silver will oxidise more readily as its purity decreases.
