    If you bought silver plating onto copper base metal, then don't worry, you'll not turn green, or at least not for a long time

    The plating will have to wear off to expose the copper before that would happen which could take years. It's more likely that the silver plate will tarnish, but you can buff it back up if that happens. To prevent tarnishing keep you jewellery in plastic grip bags.
