    I recently bought a silver chain, its beautiful and long. But it does not have that "code" on the hook of it.
    Does it have to have to code. Because i think it's real silver but i'm unsure.
    Help Please

    If you post a picture I'd probably be able to tell. It should have a hallmark, yes. Sometimes a hallmark may be on a jump ring so have a look at those too, it's not always on the catch.

    I have a Tiffany bracelet and that isnt hallmarked. It just has the numbers 925, which I know stands for silver, on one of the hearts.

    If you mean is it a genuine chav item then it is highly likely to be yes.

    All silver should be hallmarked so if thats what you mean and the chain has no hallmark anywhere then it is unlikely to be real silver.

    The 925 IS the hallmark.

    How much did you pay for it?
    And do you trust this friend to not rip you off?
    And just take it round your local jewellers/pawnbrokers - and get them to check it.
    Have a look in the Argos catalouge - and see if you can find it in there.

    No problem. I hope for the sake of you friendship - your doubts turn out to be wrong.
    I wouldn't be very pleased if my mate tried to rip me off.
    Well, if they didn't know that it was fake then I can't blame them.
