Silver

what is silver

Silver in its pure form, also known as fine silver (99.9% pure), is generally much too soft for producing wearable jewelry. Instead pure silver is mixed with small amounts of other metals to create an alloy (mixture of metals) which is much stronger and less pliable.

What is Sterling 925 Silver?

Sterling silver is such an alloy, and it is what we use to create all of our silver jewelry with. Sterling silver consists of at least 92.5% of pure silver and 7.5% of other metals, usually mostly copper. The Sterling Silver standard requires that the metal alloy has a millesimal fineness of 925. This basically means the same thing as 92.5% pure silver, and it is what you will usually find engraved on sterling silver jewelry, tableware, or other silver valuables. Look closely and you will probably find a tiny “925” stamp somewhere.
