No more fakes

11 Feb

I ordered my gold test kit and it’s here (less than $20 U.S. dollars with shipping).

It includes acid to test silver and platinum.

The reason why I needed this test kit is that last year I found two items that I believed were silver but had no markings.

The heart shaped locket cover particularly bothered me because even though the detector reads it as a dime, when you drop it, it doesn’t sound like the silver rings I have.

So I tested them this morning and I was surprised to find that the locket cover tested as 80%-90% silver. The ring tested at 90%-100% silver. I also tested my gold rings just to practice.

No more relying on Pawn Shops to test my stuff!

Acid acid on the wall, is this bling or is this gold?

Thank you for looking!
