Sterling Silver Jewelry

Silver jewelry can dress up any outfit, and can be worn day or night as a fashion accessory. Sterling silver and silver marked 925 means that the silver is 92.5 % silver mixed with other metals usually copper. Silver plate will tarnish, but sterling silver will not. Silver is usually marked but sometimes artisans will use sterling silver and it won’t be marked. How can you tell if it is real sterling silver if it doesn’t have a marking? A method that will allow you to test silver easily at home is to use the magnet test. If you take a magnet, and the magnet is drawn to the “silver”, it’s not real silver, it’s another metal, probably copper. If you use the magnet, and the magnet does not draw to the silver, it is real. That is a easy home test to test your sterling silver jewelry that may not be marked.

I have been buying and selling vintage and antique jewelry for about 7 years. Mostly on ebay. I like unique and one of a kind pieces of jewelry and prefer old over new. Vintage jewelry is a little like me, not so easy to fit in a box.
I have a masters degree in social work and practiced for 15 years in an outpatient community mental health center. . I have innovated a couple of products. Own rental property and managed it for years. I have bought and sold a variety of products in my life time, and currently my focus is on vintage Jewelery. I suppose it's easier then sitting home knitting a sweater.
