Silver

Since ancient times, people across the globe have considered silver a highly valued metal. Silver has many uses, one of which is jewelry. You’ll find bracelets, necklaces, earrings and other accessories crafted of this precious metal.

Similar to gold, silver in its purest form is soft and delicate. In order to be used for jewelry, it is often combined with metal alloys, such as copper, to increase its strength. When pure silver is mixed with less than 7.5% alloy, it is known as “sterling silver.” Sterling silver is at least 92.5% pure silver and significantly more durable than regular silver. Sterling silver jewelry is stamped in various ways (such as “sterling” or “925”) to indicate its content.
