925 sterling silver also called sterling silver or simply 925 silver if you prefer it short, gets it’s name from the percentage of pure silver it contains, being 92.5%. It is a metal alloy that consists of metals such as copper in addition to pure silver.
Why does silver need to be combined with other metals? The reason is simple, to make it stronger and easier to process. Pure silver by itself is a very soft and malleable metal unsuitable for creating detailed and complex designs in it’s original form. The addition of other metals such as copper help increasing it’s hardness consequently making it both more durable as well as much easier to work with.
Thanks to this jewelers are capable of making the most intricate and complex designed body jewelry using 925 Sterling Silver.
In terms of quality, jewelry made of 925 Silver is vastly superior to silver plated jewelry. It is stronger as well as more durable and therefore cannot easily be scrapped off or tarnished as is the case with silver plated jewelry.
Sterling Silver also has a high visual appeal with it’s cold mysterious shine, resembling the light of the moon. Due to these reasons 925 Sterling Silver has been a highly sought after material since the middle ages in Europe. It has since then been used to create some of the most beautiful silver jewelry in the world, including our extensive collection of high quality sterling silver nose studs and nose bones.
