Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5 % pure silver and 7.5 per cent copper or other metals. The millesimal fineness, the system for measuring the purity of precious metals such as gold and silver, indicates the parts per thousand of pure metal by mass in the alloy. As sterling silver is 92.5% silver in the alloy, its millesimal fineness is 925 and for this reason you also see sterling silver referred to as “925 silver”.

100% pure Silver will not cause any reaction but it needs the 7.5% alloy to make it into jewellery.
The 7.5% alloy is comprised of mainly Copper that can occasionally react with moisture, oils, and acids in the skin to produce copper salts, which can leave a green or black mark on your finger/neck. (See above question "What is Sterling Silver")
