Has anybody seen that issue before? I have a small Ferragamo Paris crossbody and I just noticed it. I was able to polish it off on one side but I'm worried it will come back.

In the last picture you can see it's starting to affect the leather as well. I was hoping to bring it to a boutique so they can repair it but I purchased this bag second hand. Do they require proof of purchase? I'm willing to pay for the repair too if it's not ridiculously expensive.

All coated hardware is likely to tarnish at some stay.
Just needs a good polish every now and then. you should be able to polish/rub it off the leather as well since this finish is coated.

Thank you for the reply! I went to the boutique yesterday and the associate has never seen that before and I agree with him. I have not even seen this issue with some of my lower end bags. We polished it but if it should come back soon, they will send it it to get the magnetic snap replaced.
You're right, luckily it's saffiano leather!
