I think you just need to polish the one that's turning black or have it tested because silver does not have a rhodium plate. Silver is silver...ahh beautiful silver.

I think the one of the items stamped 925, that isnt changing color still has a rhodium plating over it. This method is used to keep the item white, and avoid discoloration. With out the rhodium plating, silver would turn dark after time.

The magnet text is not conclusive! I tried it, while gold doesn't attract to a magnet nor does, copper, nickle, silver or zinc.

You can usually tell if its real gold by either a marking stating what its caret quality/quantity is or by its coloration. If a "gold" piece of jewelry does not have a sheen or a luster to it, then most likely its not real gold, or even plated. If your piece you are looking at does not have a sheen or luster even after you clean it, and has no visible marking stating that it is so, gold. Then the piece is of a lesser valued medal.
If you want great jewelry at a low price, you should check out this website I found. I have bought some really nice pieces that should have cost me hundreds, and some cases thousands, for pennies on the dollar. www.eyespybling.com

Bracelets and chains with a sprung clasp have a steel spring inside which will be attracted to a magnet this is normal

when looking for hallmark's it also is important too remember the letter c was also used to denote gold caret..example 14c or 18 c esspecially in antique piece's..

I just bought some jewellery which I was told was Lebanese. It is a lovely piece which nearly looks like rose gold, but I am not sure if it is real. It has a 777 stamp on it? Does thing mean anything to anyone? I paid very little for it so am not concerned as such, merely curious!
777 means 77.7% pure which I think is 18k... 14k is 58.5% or 585

K guys if it is real gold it will have a stamp somewhere on it saying 10k 14k 18k etc. and if it doesnt i would be almost sure its not real gold
I have to disagree with you there, I have a lot of older rings that either were never marked or the marks have worn off. Just bring a ring etc into a jewelers and have them test it, i have never had to pay for this service.

There is no 10k silver. 10K means gold, I'd gather that the bracelet is white gold. If it were gold plated silver it would say 10k plate or 10k and sterling.

It's real. Real gold will not stick to a magnet. What you actually have is a piece of 999.9%(almost pure) gold ingot. The numbers on the bottom, if followed by a slash somewhere between the numbers, means it could be a limited edition piece. Credit Swiss would be the company the gold ingot was made at. Quite frankly, I could be jealous because it is real, but it takes 16oz. of pure gold to make $930.00 (at time of economy: 4-7-09). The gold ingot is only 1oz and definantly worth keeping.
actually gold is $930/oz........not $/lb, and there are only 12 troy oz in a troy lb which is what gold in weighed in. A troy lb is about 80% an american pound
