If it's not sterling silver, it's possible. We couldn't tell you to be honest because it only occurs when the metal from the jewelry reacts with the oils on the surface of your skin and everyone is different of course. This is what causes different jewelry pieces to seem "tarnished" or green because of the oxidation between the metal and your skin. What does it mean for you? Well, fortunately, there's a fix to make sure it doesn't happen. By applying clear nail polish on your jewelry pieces, you can ensure the jewelry and your fingers never experience any discoloring or tarnishing. It's a life hack that has helped many, many times in the past and probably in the future as well.
