What is Sterling Silver and why we use it

Sterling Silver Guide



Pure silver is bright white in color and is the most reflective of the precious metals. However, it is soft and prone to scratching, and so silver is alloyed with harder metals to improve its durability.

Sterling silver is the world’s most popular silver alloy. It consists of 92.5% silver combined with other metals (mainly copper), that is why it is also commonly known as 925 Silver. Sterling Silver is ideal for jewelry, since it preserves the color and brightness of pure silver, while making it considerably more durable.
