A friend has a necklace stamped "Tiffany & Co.925". Under magnification it appears it is chipping. I thought 925 indicated sterling.
Anyone help with this?
thanks

Hi ryonhood,

Sometimes Tiffany is not Tiffany.. and sometimes sterling is not sterling. Also, there is usually a Rhodium plating on silver jewelry to prevent tarnishing. That may be peeling off.

Your friend didn't happen to purchas this from a street vendor in NYC by any chance?

There is a lot of fake Tiffany running around.

Really appreciate your input. Looked bogus to me but figured I might be missing something. Will have to ask where it was purchased.
Thanks again,
Ryon Hood
