THIS IS A LITTLE BIT OF INFORMATION I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD PROVIDE. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE BUYING GOLD AND SILVER ON EBAY NOW. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN ACID TESTER KIT TO SEE IF THE JEWELLERY THAT YOU HAVE PURCHASED IS REAL GOLD OR SILVER YOU CAN TEST THESE USING A MAGNET, NEITHER GOLD OR SILVER WILL STICK TO A MAGNET IF IT IS REAL. ALSO YOU CAN TEST THEM BY PUTTING THE PIECE INTO WATER, (large bucket for light ring) IF IT SINKS IT IS MORE LIKELY TO BE REAL AS THE PARTICLES IN PRECIOUS METALS ARE CLOSER TOGEATHER PROVIDING DENSITY, (IF IT IS AN HEAVY PIECE THIS CAN STILL SINK OBVIOUSLY DUE 2 WEIGHT, SO I NEVER TEST REAL HEAVY PIECES THIS WAY, ONLY PICECES 1 GRAM AND UNDER) IT IS A GOOD TEST FOR LIGHT PIECES THOUGH BECAUSE IF IT FLOATS IT IS FAKE. ALWAYS USE A JEWELLERS LOUPE AND HAVE A GOOD LOOK FOR ANY HALLMARKS PRESENT. IF YOU ARE STILL UNSURE TAKE YOUR RING OR OTHER PIECE TO A PORN SHOP OR JEWELLERS THEY WILL DO AN ACID TEST FOR YOU FOR VERY LITTLE MONEY.
