When I worked as the Director of E-Learning at a retail store for
beads, I wrote up a (layman’s) at-a-glance chart for differences in
silver. You can see it at
Because its a business that sells lots of different types of silver,
I had to be careful to minimize the negative aspects… while still
getting the info “up” on line.
My favorite place to go for my gold questions is the Hoover & Strong
catalogue. Not only do they give a great definitions, they have
colored photos of the different alloys. 1-800-759-9997
Hope that helps!
