Since pure silver is much too soft at room temperature to be molded into rings, bracelets, charms and other jewelry, 7.5 percent of another metal is needed to harden and strengthen it. The most common metal used to form the silver alloy is copper. Pure silver also tarnishes very quickly, and the addition helps slow down the process. Sterling silver is the purest form of silver that maintains its beauty over time without tarnishing.
If you’re considering buying 925 Sterling Silver, you will no doubt want to know the difference between pure silver and 925 sterling silver. Well, 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.
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 has to be introduced, by adding other metals such as copper. That’s why jewelers are capable of making the most intricate and complex designs with 925 Sterling Silver.
