Methods of Testing the Purity of Silver

Silver comes in various forms, such as fine silver, Britannia silver, sterling silver, etc. To check the purity of your silver, you can use the following methods. 
 

Check the Hallmark

The most common method to check the purity of silver is checking the stamp or hallmark. Silver is stamped with 999, 958, 925, 900 or 800. These numbers on the silver piece represent the pure silver percentage in the object. The 999 represents 99.9% purity, 958 has 95.8% silver, and so on.

Test Magnetic Qualities

Silver shows weak magnetic force as it is considered paramagnetic. Use a strong magnet like rare earth to do this test. If the magnet and your silver firmly stick together, it is not pure silver. However, several other metals don't stick to the magnet and can be made to look just like silver. So, combine other tests with the magnetic test to ensure the purity results.

Ice Test

Silver has the highest thermal conductivity compared to other metals or alloys. When you place ice directly on silver, it will start melting as if it’s placed on something scorching. The ice test to check purity works only well with silver coins and bars, not silver jewellery.


Ring Test

Silver makes a bell-like sound when it strikes another metal. This trick works best with silver coins. To do the ring test, take a silver coin and drop it on a flat metal surface from 6 inches away. If you hear a bell-ringing-like sound, the silver coin is genuine. If the sound is dull, it may be mixed with other metals.

Chemical Analysis

You can do a chemical analysis test if you don’t find any stamping on your silver. Get a corrosive acid and put on gloves to do this test. If you are testing plated silver, make sure you use the jeweller’s file to make a small mark on the silver item. Put a drop of acid on the scratched surface and analyse the colour that appears on the surface.  

Bleach Test

Silver gets black when it comes in contact with a powerful oxidising agent like bleach. If the silver quickly turns black, the piece is silver. If there is no reaction, it is some other metal. However, plated silver will pass this test. So, make sure you use other methods to be sure about purity.
