Top best answers to the question «Why does sterling silver turn brown»

Tarnish is the oxidization that occurs when air-borne sulfurs and chlorides are present, causing a yellowish cast on the sterling silver. If left without being cleaned, the tarnish becomes brown and eventually turns a dark and iridescent purple/black… Dry and buff the silver with a soft, clean cloth.
