Test for precious metals with this powerful magnet.

You will find that using a magnet to test your metals will be a good starting place to save you time, but you will most likely have to do some follow up testing as well.
Magnets help you identify if something is made of or filled with base metals but it won’t tell you about the specific precious metal content.
If an item is attracted to a magnet chances are it contains little to no precious metals and is mostly nickel, iron, or a combination of pot metals.

You will find that most gold plated, gold filled, and costume jewellery will act like true gold and not be attracted to the magnet.
Most jewellery clasps used for necklaces, chains, bracelets and more will contain a metal leaf spring inside to function properly. Because of this, a gold clasp may be slightly attracted to a magnet, check the quality stamp, judge by the behavior of the rest of the piece and go to further testing if you encounter this situation.
Any jewellery that has a heavy rhodium plating will show some magnetic attraction to a strong magnet so it always best to file a spot and test the metal under the plating.

Also use it to get all the non precious metal out of your lemel!
