    I particularly want to know about Tibetan silver rings, if they will turn green? What's in them? I read zinc/alloy.

      May be your jewellery is air oxidated, you can wash them with toothpaste.

    I would think if your silver turns green you have been 'had' and it is plated copper.

    Silver will tarnish over time, but silver turns black.  If you have a metal ring that is turning green, it's got copper in it (the tarnish on copper is called "verdigris").
