I purchased several of these bangles on faith that it was. 925 sterling silver and stamped as described by the seller. Only to find out that they were sterling silver plated! I purchased two bangles on separate dates last December for $28.00 each. I became suspicious after I recently noticed the same bangles from the seller for $20.00. I had placed an order for 5 more bangles but decided to closely inspect the two I had purchased before. My magnifier did not show any stamp what so ever but I could see scratches which revealed a darker mixed metal underneath the sterling coating. I then placed a magnetic wand over the bangle but felt no gravity until I unscrewed the ball end of the bangle. I returned the 5 bangles recently purchased along with first two. However, Buckets of Beads is not honoring the return of the Dec purchase due to the expired return policy. I feel that my return should be accepted based on the FACT that I was mislead to by fake items, regardless of how long it took me to discover it. FYI, Beadaholique is a partner of Buckets of Beads.

I found your review on the said bangle site on Amazon. The item says right in the description that it's silver plated:

"Sterling Silver Plated
Easy To Use Screw Ends
Fits Pandora, Troll, Chamilia, Biagi, Zable, and Many Other Charm Beads."

Can't say that I fault the seller for this or for not refunding a product that was 10 months old.

Sterling silver is now $26.86 per ounce. One might not expect that full sterling silver beads would be sold at almost the cost of the silver itself.
