GEMS AND JEWELRY

A great deal of silver jewelery available today is called 925 silver. Pure silver is extremely malleable and therefore can easily damage. It also softens over time, even at room temperature. Obviously, in this state silver is useless for jewelery purposes. To avoid the problems of malleability and softening, and thus to increase the life-span of your silver jewelry, other metals are added to the pure silver. The result of this blending process with alloys is a combined silver and alloy substance which is far more resistant to scratching and damage.

925 Sterling Silver jewelry is actually a combination of 92.5% silver and usually 7.5% copper. Sometimes the craftsman replaces copper with another material, or even a combination of materials. Over the last decade lower copper prices and an abundance of copper due to improved refining techniques have made it the first choice of many designers and jewelers.

The result of this blending process with alloys is a combined silver and alloy substance which is far more resistant to scratching and damage.

925 Silver is therefore a combination of mostly pure silver and a lower percentage of infused alloy metal. The addition of copper, or occasionally a similar copper-like substitute, helps to enhance silver jewelery and does not detract from its quality. In many countries the 925 hallmark is an assurance that the silver is of the highest quality. There are many other standards for Silver Jewelery, in trend in different countries.
