Is it pure silver?

I remember my mum always referring to the jewelry she had just bought or was planning to purchase as “PURE SILVER”. And as an engineer and a man of science, I always had to correct her.

Is the silver jewelry you’re looking at, pure silver? Scientifically; NO.

Pure silver, has actual silver content of 99.9%. Because of its high purity, pure silver is too soft to use in jewelry making and is often mixed with other metals, such as copper, to make it harder, resulting in 925 Sterling Silver or 925 Silver for short.

925 Silver is 92.5% Silver and remaining part consists of copper – mostly copper. This allows jewelers to make the most intricate and complex designs which won’t be possible with pure silver.

So, the next time you’re in the market for silver jewelry, look out for 925 Silver label which is the purest form of silver jewelry available in the market!
