Hi Jayleen,
Following are three quick ways that can help you detect if it is a real silver or a fake.
1)Silver has a nice ringing sound when it is tapped. If it is a coin, you can flick it into the air. Alternatively, you can gently tap it with another coin. In both instances, you should hear a high-pitched bell-type ring that lasts about 1-2 seconds. The silver quarter ring will be much higher-pitched compared to the dull ring of the copper quarter
2)If you place an ice cube on a silver coin or bar, the ice will begin to melt immediately. Obviously, ice will melt if placed on anything at room temperature, for example, but if placed on silver it will melt much more quickly and impressively. Try it!
3)Silver is not magnetic. If you place a strong, rare-earth magnet called a Neodymium magnet on a silver coin or bar, it should not easily stick to it.
For more information you can consult the pawnbrokers at NextPawn.

"777" is a logo mark, the company is known for cheaper jewelry, Not saying that yours is not real, but All pieces that I have come across marked 777 have not been "real".
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

<quoted text> The 417 just means its 10k gold. Each karat of gold has a number to go with it. the 417 is the amount of gold in the object.:)
If 417 means 10k gold my ring has 14k HSN 7. what does that mean. I thought I paid for 14 k

Angie, 14k is .586 pure gold, HSN is the makers mark and the 7 is likely the size or pattern/style number.

I consulted the pawnbrokers at NextPawn and according to them 777 is a European mark meaning 77.7% pure gold.

Shal, your mark "375" is the europaean mark for 9 karat gold.

So Grouchy and one of those know it all's! If you don't like something then just ignore it and quit acting so high and mighty! Some of us do read the other post and use our brains on broadening our horizons! Simply IGNORE! Life is to short to be freaking out over the small stuff! I am assuming that you understand that everyone is different and may have different answers. An individual might not understand the information shared but might understand another persons because they explained differently. Plus, they're a lot of us that go to work, care for our family by having to cook, clean, help with homework. We might not be on the forum as much as others. After everything I do in a day gives me hardly anytime left to read all of the ?'s & answers. So you feel free to disagree and we will to. Unless the question concerns you or the answer, then just ignore. Chill out and quit sweating the small stuff in life. I am so sick of everyone being so judgmental for no reason? Try not to sweat the small stuff. Nobody enjoys it even you. Maturing helps be more independent, and to not care if someone is repetitive. You have no idea what that person is feeling. There could of been an accident, lost someone, and etc.... I think you are better than that comment. I have learned to put just worry about yourself. Thanks :)

Fine Rach, You've been so helpful, I will now unsubscribe and you can get your kicks out of screwing people. And by the way you self righteous DA, You are the one being "judgemental" over the "small stuff", You seem not to care that some of the "suggestions" offered by some of the more ignorant people here, are going to cost some of the readers of this forum to LOSE BOTH MONEY and some actual relics!

And by the way you self centered piece of feces, I DO actually work for a living, long hours and manual labor, so get your head out of your posterior and have facts before spouting off.
I come to this site to HELP people, I done make any money off it, get no recognition and yet have helped many, so SCREW YOU!

Ok I have a necklace took it to a place here he said it was real diamonds all around the charm but its not marked silver or gold! An it didn't test for either so how do you figure that one out? It looks to be white gold to me but do they put diamonds in stuff that's not real?
