To test if something is silver or not silver we use a fluid silver test.

It can be bought in very small bottles from a jewelers supply store, it lasts for years, and it is very cheap.

You only use a drop at a time, it will not tell you if something is sterling or not, but it turns the material being tested red if it is silver, and the intensity of colour indicates the purity of the silver.
