How to Identify Genuine Silver Jewelry: Tips from Shomiz

Silver is highly valued in the jewelry world because it is both beautiful and useful in many ways. On the other hand, as the need for silver jewelry grows, so does the number of fakes. We at Shomiz know how important it is to buy real silver jewelry, which is why we've put together this guide to help you tell the difference between real silver and fake copies.

Look for these signs:
Silver jewelry that is real usually has proof stamps on it that say it is pure. Some common markings are "925" or "Sterling," which mean that the item is at least 92.5% pure silver. Also, jewelry from reputable brands like Shomiz usually has their image or brand name engraved on it to show that it is real.

Do the test with the magnet:
It's not likely that the jewelry is made of silver because silver isn't magnetic. Instead, it's probably made of a different metal combination. Stick a magnet to the item; if it sticks, it's not real silver.

Do the test for nitric acid:
For this test, a drop of nitric acid is put on a hidden part of the jewelry, like the clasp or the inside. If the response is real silver, it will be milky white. If it is fake silver, it might turn green or not respond. Be careful when doing this test, and be careful with the nitric acid.

Check the Sound and Weight:
Because silver is more dense than other metals, real silver jewelry is usually heavier than fakes. Additionally, real silver makes a clear ringing sound when lightly hit, while fake silver may sound dull or scratchy.

Check for Patina and Tarnish:
Real silver gets a patina, which is a natural rust that looks like a soft, darker shine, over time. If a piece is too shiny or doesn't show any rust, it might not be real. But remember that too much rust could also mean that the silver isn't very good or that it wasn't stored properly.

Get a professional evaluation:
If you're not sure what your silver jewelry is worth, take it to a professional dealer or evaluator. They can give you useful information and use special testing methods to prove that it is real.

If you follow these tips, you can tell the difference between real and fake silver jewelry. This will help you protect the value and beauty of your beautiful earrings, anklets, bracelets, and rings from Shomiz for years to come. Shop Shomiz with Confidence
