What is Sterling Silver?
What is is Sterling silver or 925 silver. Sterling silver is an alloy (a mixture of pure metals) of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals, usually copper. My sterling silver is Nickel and Lead FREE and uses copper. WHY is sterling silver a mixture, silver is a "soft" metal, sterling silver is more durable and harder.
I hope this helps people understand more about Jewellery, its terms and practices.
