How to battle silver counterfeit products this Festive Season

Silver has been used in our country for centuries now. It is gifted on every occasion and is used as ​​wedding gifts, anniversary gifts or simply as a token of gratitude for baby shower gifts. Every occasion becomes special when silver products get involved as they are treated as a sign of good fortune.

But from the past few years, this virtuous business has taken a slight deviation with the businesses who fool people by selling them counterfeit products. You must have a decent knowledge regarding the quality and purity of the silver products that you purchase. Maybe the silver ring you purchased from your ‘Trusted Jeweller’ is a fake one. We have to be very careful while making purchases during the festive season or for wedding invites, to ensure that we buy only authentic products.

Silver counterfeits can be easily recognized by the following methods:

1. The ring test: A majority of counterfeits are found in ​​wedding gifts, anniversary gifts and even baby shower gifts. This is because you have a lot to do in a short period of time. As a result, you do not pay proper attention. But don’t worry. To recognize fake silver you can undertake the ring test. Since silver is a mix of silver and copper, it should produce a high-pitch bell sound when tapped upon. Silver-coated products do not produce this kind of sound.

2. The quality mark: Every silver product has a quality label on its back. You can use a magnifying glass to see the mark and find the engraved words. Usually sterling silver (the silver that we purchase normally) will have a marking of .925. Meaning that there is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. It is the most common mark that you will find and it has the highest price. So be careful if you find any other writing that the shopkeeper did not specify. Don’t be fooled.

3. The foundation method: Whenever you have a doubt about your wedding gifts, anniversary gift rings or coins being counterfeit, simply run through to any foundation (make-up). The metal is pure if it leaves a temporary black colour on the foundation and vice versa in the other case.

We at episode silver undertake many steps and procedures to ensure that you receive the best quality authentic silver products from us. We also provide hall-mark certificates to justify its authenticity on each and every product we sell.
