Would you expect jewelry made of an alloy of silver and copper to tarnish(react) in an environment where chlorine fumes exist? Why or why not?

Im assuming yes because both silver and copper metals react with chlorine gas...I don't know if I am correct in answering so.

    I would assume that both Cu and Ag would react with Cl2 gas. At least to the tarnish stage.
