How do you tell if the bracelet is really sterling silver and classified as Estrucan? There are various examples on line but what makes the piece authentic?

    These pieces are incredible but how do you know if they really are silver without markings?

    you can take these pieces to your local jeweler, most will test for nothing. Might try that. Nice piece thanks for sharing

    Thank you. I will take your advice and do just that.

    Only my opinion, but ...... Good sterling silver jewelry (or other items of sterling silver) most always has marks on it to identify it as sterling silver. "927" is the number to look for in American sterling; Mexican and Italian silver will say so. European or British sterling most always can be identified by specific letters, numbers, etc. (check out silver marks on Google). The Etruscan age was 12th to 6th century B.C., so I highly doubt your jewelry is "Etruscan"; it could, however, be in the Etruscan "style." True Etruscan jewelry is something that might be found, for example, in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Good luck!

    Thanks. I thought that all silver is normally marked, so... My son said the jeweled item looks Arabian.?? I will take the pieces to the jewelers and try to get more information. Thanks for your input/comments.

    The one on the bottom right is from India. I had a couple of these. I don't think they are real silver.
