All silver tarnishes. Typically, Montana silver comes with a clear lacquer finish that helps to prevent tarnishing but it doesn't last forever. You can clean the silver and re-lacquer it or just keep it polished.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Montana Silver will also re-apply the lacquer for you, or totally re-plate it if the silver will not polish up any more or is damaged.

I have a Montana Silver tooled cell phone holster with the conchos and studs and I haven't had any tarnish yet (2 years). I also have some Montana conshos on my old show saddle. They've started to tarnish a little...but the saddle is ancient. Conchos come off and can be cleaned like jewelry, and you can have them re-laquered so it takes longer for them to tarnish.
