Hi, my name is Elena. I'm talking about how to melt silver rings to make a new ring. So the first thing is what you'll do if you have your all silver rings you want to melt, you look at the little mark in the ring. If it's real silver and not only plated and if they have all the right same numbers. Sterling silver has the number 925. There's also some silvers that are not that high of an alloy, they only have 800. So you should melt the same like only sterling silver or only the 800 to a new ring. Also you will need about three times as much silver than your new ring is going to weight if you melt it and want to make something new just for filing this stuff away and cutting and soldering. So make sure you have enough silver to melt for your new ring.
