What Does 925 Silver Mean On Jewelry?

925 Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% of other metals usually, copper. It is also known as Sterling Silver. The reason why sterling silver requires adding another metal is that naturally, fine silver is too soft to be used in jewelry crafting. Adding other additives to the silver increases the hardness, making it more suitable and durable for use in fine jewelry and silverware.

Due to its composition, sterling silver (AKA 925) is genuine silver, and it differs from silver-plated metal. Silver-plated items are composed of another kind of material like copper, nickel, brass, or pewter coating with a skinny layer of silver.
