925 Stands for sterling But, If purchased from China or other countries could be costume,My advice is to buy A acid test kit with stone Scrap a little on the stone then drop a drop of acid on the scrap of metal material this will prove weather or not it is real,

925 = sterling silver, which is silver with rhodium plating. Made in Italy, is where the item is manufactured. Its doesn't mean its real or not. Look for the karat stamp or the percent stamp. The stamps are as followed.
10k =.416% gold or 416
14k =.585% gold or 585
18k =.750% gold or 750
21k =.875% gold or 875
22k =.916% gold or often stamped 90 or 916
24k =.999% gold or often stamped 965 or 999
silver is stampled 925
platinum is 965
965 in 22 karat is that real

I was recently given a pair of Gold Baby Phat Earrings and I really love them, but my skin breaks out in an instant if the jewelry is not real. I want to try them on but there is no way of telling if they are real or not. How can I tell?

one easy way to find out weather gold is fake or not.... PUT A MAGNET REALLY CLOSE, if it sticks even a little its all fake and BS... real gold will not show any affect toward magnets, i work for a jewlers company, so i know this stuff
this is true, however, copper isn't magnetic...
