Absolutely they can. Silver does has a tendency to tarnish to varying degrees depending upon the acidity and salts in the skin, humidity, and what chemicals the silver is exposed to during a regular day. Other than that, there is no other concern to enjoying wearing it as everyday jewelry for years.

It means the jewelry is sterling silver (92.6% pure silver)

Jewelry made with 92.5 sterling silver called sterling silver jewelry. Sterling silver is an alloy of pure silver containing 92.5 by weight of silver and 7.5 by weight of other metals, usually copper. This 7.5% of different metal actually improves the durability of the finished product.

On a piece of Sterling Silver Jewelry, you will find the mark 925- 925 signifies 92.5% purity in the silver . I worked at the largest fine jewelry manufacturer in the United states for 18 years and they stamp their sterling silver jewelry with "SS".
