Will silver turn my skin green?

If you have a natural high acidity level in your skin, it is possible for your finger may "turn green". That does not mean that there is a fault with the silver or the manufacture of the silver jewelry. The green is actually caused by oxidisation, and all silver will oxidise. The oxidisation produced is also what gives silver a tarnished look. For people with a higher acidity level, it can stain the finger, giving a dark "green" look.
