Hey ladies! I’m hoping some savvy bee can help me out with this one– my hubby just got me a pearl bracelet with a cute clasp that reads BL 925 on it. I thought that 925 meant that it was sterling silver….but the guy at the jewelry store that sold it to him assured him it was white gold. We’re going back this weekend to ask him about it, but I was hoping someone could answer before then!! The jewelry store is a national chain, so I don’t think we’ll have an issue getting it replaced with a real gold one, but it still makes me sad that DH got sold the wrong item!
Thanks for your help!!!

yes 925 is sterling silver not white gold, take it back as you said it’s a chain they should replace it straight away the assistant may have been inexperianced, it may be an honest mistake but you never know they may offer you some kind of compensation. x

The funniest (and saddest, lol) part is that the store manager is the one who sold it to him! Thanks for your expertise!

That is really messed up because 925 is stering silver. Gold is marked with karts normaly like 14k or 18k but they can also have numbers like 10k can also have the mark 417. But 925 is sterling silver, gold is never marked 925.
