Hello, I recently was given two saint pendants for my confirmation and was told they were silver. I’ve tried polishing them as there is a bit of tarnish, despite being new, and it doesn’t quite shine like a sterling silver cross I own which I know to be silver. The chain for this cross, and incidentally the chain I am using for these pendants, also looks a lot shinier than these pendants, so I was wondering if the hallmark of “Sterling” denoted whether it actually was Sterling Silver? There is also more of a traditional hallmark above this - unfortunately the camera will not pick up on it and is too out of focus, so I cannot post a picture.
It almost looks as though there are two ‘C’ s entwined within a circle. I’m not sure whether they were British or American made.
Thanks for any help on this
