Tips On Buying Silver Earrings

Just like anything, despite how stunning silver jewellery can be, it can be tricky to purchase a piece that is of high quality and at the right price. With so many different jewellery retailers popping up left and right, it becomes even more crucial to look for the best practices in purchasing so you can walk away with something you truly love and value. Here’s how:

  • Be realistic on the price

As it’s a precious metal, anything that looks too good to be true, probably is. This means that if you want to cut back your spending, shop at renowned retailers during the sale time to get a discount you can trust. Another solid way to check a deal is by doing a comparison on prices and anything that looks unrealistically cheap is probably fake.

  • Ask the seller questions

A good way to know you’re buying the real deal is by talking to the customer service rep or jewellery dealer before making your purchase. In this way, you’ll be able to ask those all-important questions about hallmarking or where the silver is sourced for instance.

  • Look at hallmarks

Hallmark checking is essential to separate the real from the fake. They are normally found in discrete places of the jewellery and will normally be represented numerically such as .925 for sterling silver. This is your solid indication that what your buying is high quality and real.

  • If you’re not sure, test it!

Last but not least, if you want to be absolutely certain then you will need to carry out tests that won’t harm or scratch the silver. You can use a magnet, for example, and if the silver piece is not attracted to it then it’s a sign it’s genuine as silver isn’t a magnetic precious metal.

    I love the spiked earrings, and thanks for the tips. I feel like it’s good for all silver jewelry, especially for me since I don’t have my ears pierced. 🙂

    Ah this is great information. Sadly I can not wear silver. I got my ears pierced in my teens and got them pierced with gold and no problems. Then once the healing time period had passed I changed to silver b/c at that time I was a punk rock goth and did NOT wear gold lol. But my ears turned black and got red and infected. I was told by the doctor I was allergic to silver. So I let them close up as I did not like gold. Now I do so I may get them redone.

    It’s important to examine whether it’s good quality silver or not. To check the hallmark is a good tip to make sure the silver is real.
