Sterling Silver Chains For Men – How To Identify Real Sterling Silver

Sterling Silver Jewellery

When you are looking for sterling silver chains for men, you want to know that what you are buying is the real thing. You are, of course, not the only one, the companies themselves want to ensure that what they have on display is real, and there are several ways that you and they can check.

While a sterling silver necklace is cheaper than a gold one, its price tends to fluctuate more. This makes pricing rings and bracelets difficult and encourages fakes to flood into the market. A reputable seller of mens sterling silver jewellery and gifts will ensure that their stock is real and will have no objections to you wanting to test it for yourself. If the sterling silver chain you are thinking of buying is real, then none of these tests will do any harm to the piece of jewellery. The first thing you should do is look for the Hallmark. You may need a magnifying glass for this as it is often very small. On sterling silver the mark should read ‘Ster’ or ‘925’, if it’s not there then neither should you be. If the mark is there the next thing to do is give the piece a good smell; sterling silver has no discernible smell. All you should smell is any other materials that are present, such as leather. Moreover, if you rub your piece of silver jewellery with a white cloth and notice that black marks have occurred, this indicates that it is real. You can also undertake the magnet test, sterling silver is not magnetic, and so if a ring sticks to the magnet, it’s not authentic.

The most effective way to ensure that the sterling silver chains for men you want to buy are real is to use a reputable seller.

Mayumi.T said: Silver bracelet with Extension

Beautiful and stylish. Elegant gift box. My husband loves it. Only disadvantage is grab hair on the arm.

Mark Simon Woodall said: Superb Quality & Craftsmanship

This is an absolutely brilliantly made sterling silver bracelet that I was so impressed with I ordered another bracelet from them within the same week. It’s the old thing as they say “you get what you pay for” and yes, you might find cheaper but they would not be a patch on this and the other bracelets these people manufacture. Highly recommended...
