This may be a silly question.
I was in a jewellers shop yesterday and they had some crucifixes
that were supposed to be sterling silver, however they werent solid.
They were also yellowed in color. As though they were made to look
like gold… is this correct? Is it the pickling process that makes
silver look this way? I know that they were designed this way
because they had alot of them, and they were all identical.
Mind you they were selling them cheap, @ $25 $AUD, and were on
special for $12 at the time. The silver she was talking about looked
more like German Silver to me because they didnt seem to have the
weight i would expect in a solid piece. Its a little disconcerting
if they are selling “german silver” items as silver because this is
supposed to be one of the top mass production jewellery chains in
