What is Sterling Silver
Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. In this form, it is stunning and suffers from minimal tarnish, but it’s generally too soft and malleable for making most silver jewellery.
Instead, fine silver is alloyed with copper to create sterling silver, which is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. This is why you will sometimes see sterling silver referred to as ‘925 silver. These percentages are the reason why sterling silver is mostly hallmarked with the numbers 925.
The addition of copper makes the silver strong, more durable and therefore much better to work with and use, without compromising on colour.
The only downside to sterling silver is that the added copper will cause it to tarnish, with the metal turning dark brown or black over time, especially in humid conditions. However, it’s easy to clean and beneath the tarnish your sterling silver will still be in great condition. It can be polished back to its original, sleek colour, no matter how much time has passed
