If you’re considering buying 925 Sterling Silver, you will want to know the difference between pure silver and 925 sterling silver (also known as 925 Silver). Pure silver is not really made up of only silver, it has 99.9% of silver, and a small content composed of other metals such as copper.
Sterling Silver, on the other hand, consists of 92.5% silver, with the balance composed of other metals to allow the jewelry to take shape. The reason silver needs to be combined with other metals is that it is very difficult to make great designs with just pure silver, which is very soft and malleable. A bit of hardness must be introduced, by adding other metals such as copper. That’s why jewelers such as Charmify Jewelry can make the most intricate and complex designs with the highest 925 Sterling Silver quality.
925 Sterling Silver is significantly different from silver plated jewelry. Silver plated jewelry is of a lower quality because a layer of silver is placed over another metal or alloy and can be scraped off or tarnished easily. At Charmify Jewelry all jewelry is made of real 925 Sterling Silver to give it a high level of quality while giving the silver the ability to take shape into beautiful designs. This ensures that our pieces remain in pristine condition.
