About the Product

Tests for  925 Sterling Silver

Buying quality silver alloys is important. The type of silver used will determine the longevity and beauty of your jewelry item. Today, there are many options for buying sterling silver beads and findings, from sterling silver chains to corrugated beads, curved tubes, round, oval, and many more. Here are some pointers on how to check the authenticity of the 925 Silver Beads and finding you might choose to use.


Magnet Test

The first test that you can use is the magnet test. Take a small magnet and bring it close to the sterling silver item. If the item does not stick to the magnet, it indicates that it contains some silver, confirming its authenticity. However, if the item sticks to the magnet, then this means that there is no silver present in it, and hence it is fake.


Acid Test

An acid test is a quick and easy way to determine if an item is made of sterling silver. Sterling silver should contain at least 92.5% pure silver and must be marked with the word “sterling” or “925” to indicate that it is genuine sterling silver. The acid test involves rubbing a drop of nitric acid on the surface of the metal and analyzing the color that appears. If it turns green, then the item has a higher copper content than sterling silver and thus is not real sterling silver. If it turns a milky white color, then it is likely real sterling silver. This method can be used to quickly determine if beads and findings are made from genuine sterling silver before making a purchase.


Rub Test

The rub test is important for buying sterling silver beads and findings. It’s a simple test that can quickly reveal whether your jewelry is made from real sterling silver. To do the rub test, simply rub the piece of jewelry in question against a soft cloth. If the jewelry leaves a black mark on the cloth, then it isn’t made of sterling silver – it’s likely made of some other metal alloy that has been plated with silver or coated with a patina to give it an appearance similar to sterling silver. However, if the jewelry leaves behind a gray/silver mark on the fabric, then you can be sure that your beads and findings are made of real sterling silver.


Ice Test

When it comes to purchasing sterling silver beads and findings, it’s important to ensure that you are getting a genuine piece. One way to do this is an ice test. This simple test involves rubbing a piece of ice over the metal surface of the bead or finding; if it’s genuine silver, the metal should remain cool to the touch even after several seconds have passed. If the metal warms up or turns dark, then you know that it isn’t pure sterling silver.


The ice test is a great way for buyers to check for authenticity before making a purchase, but keep in mind that other tests can also be used. A magnet test, acid testing, and x-ray fluorescence.



When it comes to buying sterling silver beads and findings, there are a few things to consider. First, decide what type of materials you want and how much you’re willing to spend. Then, look for reputable suppliers who offer quality products at reasonable prices. Consider whether or not the supplier offers discounts, free shipping, and other promotions. Do some research on the company’s return policy in case something isn’t right with your order. Finally, make sure you read all descriptions carefully to ensure that the product is exactly as described. With these tips in mind, shopping for sterling silver beads and findings should be easy!

How this Charm is Made

Lost wax casting is a time-honored craft that has been used for centuries by skilled artisans to create precise metal objects. Also known as “investment casting,” lost wax casting is the process of creating a detailed metal object from a wax model. This method can produce highly detailed results and has a wide variety of applications, from fine jewelry to aerospace components. For jewelry makers, lost wax casting helps create unique and eye-catching pieces without relying on expensive tools or equipment.


What Is the Process of Lost Wax Casting?

Lost wax casting is a process used to create metal parts with tight tolerances, thinner walls, and superior dimensional accuracy from 3D computer-aided design (CAD). The process begins with the selection of a die based on the desired part. Warm wax is then poured into the die to form the pattern for the part. The waxed pattern is dipped in a liquid ceramic slurry and coated with several layers of silica sand. After it dries, it’s placed in an oven to melt away the wax under extremely high temperatures, leaving an empty mold cavity. Lastly, molten metal such as bronze or stainless steel is poured into the cavity created by the melted wax, letting it cool and harden before being removed from its cast.


After casting, minimal finishing processes are required since lost wax casting offers a mechanical accuracy close to the desired finished component, reducing cost and production time. Lost wax casting also allows complex shapes and geometries with sharp details that are typically difficult or expensive to achieve using other processes, such as machined parts or injection molding. Its benefits also include allowing designers various options for surface finishes depending on their requirements while reducing costs associated with material procurement, as multiple materials can be cast within one mold at no extra cost.


Finishing and Polishing Silver Castings

The lost wax casting method produces silver castings that need to undergo a thorough finishing and polishing process to preserve their top-notch look. This process usually entails surface buffing, sanding, or burnishing to achieve a polished and seamless appearance.

Machine polishing is a crucial stage in the lost wax casting manufacturing process for crafting sterling silver products. This technique is utilized to refine and smooth sterling silver items to achieve a uniform, the glossy surface reflecting light and improving the piece’s aesthetics.

Step into the world of the lost wax casting of sterling silver pieces, where the burnishing process reigns supreme. Before the ultimate shine is achieved, the sterling silver piece must first undergo a magical transformation. With a combination of materials and tools, the burnishing process creates a flawless canvas, just waiting to be polished to perfection.
