Whether jewelry is pure silver is mainly judged by gloss, texture, flexibility and oxidation.
 

1. Dainty pure silver has a soft luster

As shown in the figure, pure silver is on the left and nickel plated silver jewelry is on the right. Pure silver jewelry has a soft and moist luster under the light, while electroplated products will refract the light and feel dazzling visually.
 

2. The texture of dainty sterling silver is smooth and delicate

As shown in the figure, the sterling silver on the left feels fine and smooth; On the right side of the nickel plated silver ring, concave convex nicks can be seen on the surface, which feels rough when touching.
 

3. Dainty sterling Silver is more resilient

Pure silver products have good toughness and are not easy to break when bent by force; In order to reduce costs, some black heart vendors use hollow or internal silver powder, which is easy to break and fold.
 

4. Dainty pure silver is easy to reduce after oxidation

Pure silver ornaments that change color due to oxidation will slowly restore luster after wearing them for about a week, as shown in the left figure. The picture on the right is a nickel silver plated necklace, which cannot be restored no matter how long it is worn after oxidation.
