What does 925 Silver mean?

What does 925 Silver mean?

Silver is a precious metal that has been used for jewellery and other decorative objects for centuries. Sterling silver is an alloy of silver that contains 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. When this alloy is stamped with the number “925”, it indicates that the object is made of sterling silver.

The “925” stamp on sterling silver jewellery indicates that the piece is made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. Sterling silver is the standard for beautiful high-quality silver jewellery and can be worn by people with sensitive skin.

Sterling silver is a great choice for everyday wear as it is strong and durable. It can also be plated with gold or rhodium for a more luxurious look.

When shopping for sterling silver jewellery, be sure to look for the “925” stamp to be sure that you are getting genuine sterling silver. Sterling silver is an investment that will last a lifetime.

The “925” stamp on sterling silver jewelry guarantees its authenticity and guarantees that the silver content is at least 92.5%. Any piece of sterling silver jewellery that does not have this stamp is likely to be made of lower-quality silver or even fake silver.

The 925 Sterling Silver stamp is something that we’ve used on every piece of Lucy Quartermaine jewellery since we first started as each and every one of our pieces are made from this fine material.

Whilst a number of our pieces are then finished in Yellow Gold Vermeil or Rose Gold Vermeil, all our our award-winning jewellery uses 925 Sterling Silver as a base metal to ensure its quality and longevity.
