If the ring is silver, nitric acid will turn the area a whitish, cloudy, matte color. If you still are not sure, a silver testing solution, available at the jewelers supply store for less than $10 can be used.
The color the solution turns when placed on the metal will determine the percentage of silver in the ring. If the piece is fine silver the solution should turn bright red.
There's a great charm with silver, as it ages, it wears to a soft patina of great beauty. Thank you for writing to us!Yvonne Hammouda-EyreIf you would like to join the Antique Jewelry Investor community and stay up to date with all the latest Antique jewelry news, click here....
