your silver

Silver is a precious metal favored for its white, shiny tone. Much like gold, pure silver is soft and malleable, making it a popular material for luxury jewelry, currency, and precious statues. Genuine silver is a wonderful metal for jewelry thanks to its elegant white tone and low maintenance care. Silver jewelry works well in formal and casual settings, adding effortless sophistication to any look.

How to Take Care of Silver Jewelry

Authenticating Silver Jewelry At Home

If you own old silver jewelry and want to test if it's real or not, there are many ways to do it at the comfort of your home.

  • Check to see if there are markings to signify the purity of the silver. Common markings include 925, 900, and 800. You can also use a magnet to test your silverwares. Like most precious metals, real silver is nonmagnetic.
  • The odor test is also a useful way to identify real silver from fakes. Real silver is odorless so if there is a metallic or sulfur-like smell, even if it's faint, chances are the item is not real silver or at the very least silver-plated with a metal/steel core.
  • Real silver is prone to oxidation and tarnish. Polishing your silver pieces with a white cloth is another great way to authenticate it. If the item doesn't leave a black residue on the cloth, it may be fake.
  • Use ice to check if the silver item works as a superconductor like real silver. Even at room temperature, real silver absorbs the heat from its surroundings and will melt the ice faster. Use your body heat and hold the silver item against a block of ice. If it's melting rapidly from the contact point, it's probably real.
  • Lastly, check with your local and trusted jeweler. Some home tests may be damaging to your jewelry so the safest way to check for authenticity is through a professional.
