Recently a coworker asked my husband to show me a Sterling Key
holder. It is crafted in a U shape with a ball that screws off
the end to put the keys on and has a golf theme. She wants it
converted to a pin, I can easily solder a pin on but I am
concerned about it.
It is so shiny and I am finding it hard to believe it’s just
sterling and hasn’t had any tarnishing at all. I don’t know much
about coatings or how to detect Rhodium sp? plating.
Does anyone know if Tiffany & Co would do that to one of their
pieces? I have called to ask but they haven’t been cooperative. I
guess they don’t want someone mucking up their stuff, but hey, I
don’t want to be doing it either. This is a favor (if it were a
plain old customer I would just say no) so if anyone can advise
me I would greatly appreciate it.
