What is 925 Sterling Silver Jewelry?

by Juan Wang 26 Jul 2022 0 Comments
The production process of 925 sterling silver is an alloy containing 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. It is not 100% sterling silver. However, although 925 silver is doped with other elements, it is called standard silver internationally. Most branded silver jewelry stores sell 925 sterling silver. Adding other ingredients to sterling silver is because sterling silver is too soft and easy to oxidize. 925 sterling silver has ideal hardness, brightness and luster, and oxidation resistance due to the addition of 7.5% alloys such as copper and zinc. Moreover, it can be inlaid with various gemstones, so that the sterling silver jewelry has a bright color, is not easy to oxidize and blacken, and can make exquisite styles. In addition, it can be integrated with other jewelry, making it more fashionable. In necklaces, pendants, rings, earrings, etc., most of them are made of 925 silver.
