saw more Chinese sterling silver LOL chains. Told the seller they
were not sterling.
Seller said "I buy them as sterling and will sell them as sterling."
That won't cut it with the detectives when they arrest you I
Wow did this con artist/moron get annoyed. So I showed her the assay
report on one of those chains.
That sure shut her up. She sells stone pendants from China and tells
people she drills a hole in them and mounts the bail. LOL They are
dyed agate and 50 cents in China bail included.
I told her where to buy the real chain $22 wholesale. Not
interested. I will get a friend to buy one and if they are told it is
sterling she can have a "chat" to a detective.
Hello newbies you cannot buy a sterling silver snake chain for $1.
I buy my chain from A and E metals, chain is made in Italy,
Also I like improvements no matter how small. My last order came

Oh the Chinese chains have a disk with 925 on it. They are sh*t.
Told another seller that her chains were not sterling plated, they
were plated in fine silver 99.9%. She was happy to hear this and
thought it a good selling point.
In the end it is about attitude, some listen and learn and some are
on an ego trip.
These morons/con artists make it hard for those honest in the trade.
Unsophisticated customers love a bargain. But their day will come.
Followed a link about diamonds and in NY some selling certified
diamonds have them certified from people who do not exist. At all
levels of this trade you need to be very careful.
