Facts about Sterling silver

  • Composition: Sterling silver is an alloy made up of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. The addition of other metals improves the durability and strength of the silver, as pure silver is too soft for most functional objects.
  • Hallmarking: Authentic sterling silver is often stamped with a hallmark to indicate its purity and authenticity. In the United States, the hallmark for sterling silver is usually "925" or "STERLING."
  • Tarnishing: Sterling silver can tarnish over time due to exposure to air and moisture. This can result in a darkening or discoloration of the metal. Regular cleaning and proper storage can help prevent tarnishing.
  • Polishing: Polishing sterling silver with a soft cloth or specialized silver polishing cloth can help restore its shine and remove tarnish. However, excessive polishing can lead to the removal of a thin layer of silver, so it should be done sparingly.
  • Versatility: Sterling silver is widely used in jewelry making, flatware, utensils, decorative items, and even musical instruments due to its malleability and attractive appearance.
  • Value: While sterling silver is less valuable than pure silver, it still holds significant value due to its silver content and various applications.

More facts about sterling silver

  • Durability: While stronger than pure silver, sterling silver is still relatively soft compared to other metals like stainless steel or titanium. It's important to take care to avoid scratching or denting sterling silver items.
  • Antique Value: Antique sterling silver items can have additional value due to their age, craftsmanship, and historical significance.
  • Jewelry Design: Sterling silver is a popular choice for jewelry designers because it can be easily shaped, engraved, and embellished, allowing for intricate and detailed designs.
  • Market Demand: The market for sterling silver items, especially jewelry, remains strong due to its affordability and timeless appeal.
  • Comparison to Silver Plate: Sterling silver is often more valuable and durable than silver-plated items. Silver-plated items have a thin layer of silver adhered to a base metal, whereas sterling silver is a solid alloy throughout.
