Sterling Silver

Sterling Silver is commonly used in the making of fine jewellery and is classed as a precious metal alloy whilst Pure Silver is a precious metal. As Sterling Silver is defined as being 92.5% pure silver (balance usually copper) or 925 parts Silver per 1000 it is often referred to in jewellery terms as '925 Silver' and is normally stamped .925 or 925. This stamping is not a true 'Hallmark' as many may believe - read this article for details about Sterling Silver Hallmarks

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and 7.5% by mass of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925.

Fine silver, for example 99.9% pure silver, is generally too soft for producing functional objects; therefore, the silver is usually alloyed with copper to give it strength while preserving the ductility and beauty of the precious metal. Other metals can replace the copper, usually with the intention of improving various properties of the basic sterling alloy such as reducing casting porosity, eliminating firescale, and increasing resistance to tarnish.[citation needed] These replacement metals include germanium, zinc and platinum, as well as a variety of other additives, including silicon and boron.[citation needed] Alloys such as argentium silver have appeared in recent decades.
