Buy Mexican silver like a pro with these shopping tricks.
Real silver is weightier and is marked ".925" (indicating a silver content of at least 92.5%) for sterling and ".950" (at least 95% silver content) for finer pieces. When size permits, the manufacturer’s name and the word "Mexico" should also appear.
