Test for silver


#1

Hi, A friend has purchased a bracelet through an auction site. It
stated in the sales pitch that it was sterling silver, it also has a
925 ‘tag’ on the catch. She has asked me if it’s really sterling
silver - and I’m unable to help her. Is there a test you can do to
check?

Thanks, in anticipation.

probably an acid test would be best. test kits are available from
many of the supply houses. melting does not seem to be a viable test.
