What to look for when buying silver Jewellery on-line

When buying Silver Jewellery on-line, it is very easy unkowingly to buy Fake Solid Silver Jewellery. Most Silver Plated Jewellery comes from China.
These items can even have a 925 Silver Stamp on them and many sellers will use this to say they are Selling You Solid Silver.
Because some are not so honest with buyers, many people think they are buying Solid Silver at a Great Price.

The Solid Silver Scam

To the right is a picture of a typical  set of Hoop Earrings. They are good quality however only 925 Silver Plated.
The truth is most Silver Plated  Jewellery, the main metal is Copper or Tin with a 925 silver coating. Even if it has a 925 Stamp on it.
Don't get me wrong it is good quality but it is Not Solid Silver.

Who should you Buy From?

Try and buy from a Seller who at least tells you what you are buying. If the price seems to good to be true, it very well may be.
Why Support someone who Lies to get a Sale.
Buzit sells both Solid Silver and 925 Silver plated Jewellery, all are very good quality,  however we are honest with our customers and clearly tell you what is Silver Plated and what is Solid Silver, giving you the option on what to buy.
We buy our Solid Silver Jewellery from a manufacturer in the UK and our Silver Plated Jewellery from Hong Kong.
