I type "sterling silver" and items from gold turn up... why?

This I don't understand about tagging:
If I look for "sterling silver" in "handmade", then I don't see anything like "sterling silver" in the titles of the descriptions...

It could be in the tags, not the title
Is it possible that what you're seeing are items that are "gold vermeil"? Gold vermeil is often sterling silver coated with gold - better explained here:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vermeil

Possibly some gold vermeil items are tagged sterling silver?
That's very odd, are you sure you're typing it in correctly, or don't have some kind of filter set? when I type sterling silver in handmade and search everything has sterling silver in the titles.

It's also possible you're in a test group for searches, but it seems like a pretty odd test to not show any relevant keyword results to a search query.
Are you in relevancy or recency? My results have one item that is gold over sterling silver, everything else on the first page is sterling.
