First Arrows I've seen is 950 silver. What's this about 920?

Sorry, my bad. Meant to say 950 opposed to regular 925. I've read that the strength and oxidation may be different for the 950 silver than 925.


Ideally, I'd like to get a Goro's silver / gold feather as below. This does not appear to be something Larry Smith offers. Only found it at First Arrows so far.

Are there alot of fake Goro's feathers floating around? Anyone who can school me into getting the correct ones, or can direct me somewhere where I can do some reading?

This is honestly the best thread I found for these kinds of things, but I may be looking in the wrong places. Appreciate any help.

@johanhej

firstly,

HAHAHA. good luck in getting the gold tip at retail. additionally, the prices for resale goros are at an absolutely disgusting level right now. even if you have the money, i'd say it's absolutely not worth it. if you consider yourself a lucky person, then go try and raffle for the queue in japan to see what number you might be to go into the store and what they'll let you buy.

secondly,

i've been into goros for at least 10 years not and unfortunately, i still can't figure how to tell the real and fake apart. with that said as well, i've not encountered or come across a fake piece to be able to compare or to see what it's actually like. luckily for me, all my pieces are bought directly from goros.

i'd say its worth a shot going to goros' store in harajuku. after all, that's the fun of it, seeing what items you're able to buy. sadly, the queue these days are crazy long but like i said if you're lucky, you might just get a good number..

Thanks boss! I purchased the ring from fangjewelrystudio on Etsy. It's a 24K gold-950 silver inlay.

Recently bought a Larry Smith necklace similar to the one pictured below, with the addition of a gold rose pendant.

However, the opening loop for the necklace tends to walk around and I cannot seem to keep this towards the back. It seems the necklace is missing something to center it on the opposite end by the feather.

Anyone who has the similar problem and how do you deal with this?
Thinking maybe something leather or so may be useful for centering, but havent really fiured out a good way to fixate it without the thread being overly thin.
