Hello, I've been purchasing used sterling silver jewelry for years now online from Ebay. I can usually tell when a piece is silverplated by its appearance but get fooled by some..for example I get a lot of Italian 925 stamped pieces that'll be slightly magnetic when dangled in front of a strong rare earth magnet. Is this because it contains nickel as an alloy or is the whole piece plated over junk mixed metals? I'm not sure if you can answer that. but I'd at least like to know if there are Italian jewelry manufacturers who make sterling silver with nickel or not as an alloy .75/1000. Whenever I ask this question on other sites they always say it's not sterling if it's magnetic and is real solid sterling if it isn't magnetic but I tell them silver plated brass or copper wouldn't be magnetic either! And I've come across a lot of fakes like that from China, Thailand and elsewhere! Thank you for answering this perplexing question if you can.
