A combined weight of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper come together to make sterling silver. Used throughout history in many different events. Originated in Germany and was the mode of commerce back in the day. With the order of King Henry, it became centralized until it was deposited into Royal Mint in 1843.
Why sterling silver? Why not pure silver? The difference.
The answer is pure silver which is 99.9%, is very soft and malleable, hence not good for crafting jewellery. Try to make jewellery out of pure silver is gonna break it into pieces or worse.
On the other hand, fine silver 92.5% with copper 7.5% makes great jewellery, hence named 925 sterling silver from the amount of pure silver used in the process. The role of copper is to make it harder without changing its appearance. Every silver jewellery available anywhere would be 925 sterling silver.
However, there is a catch! Sterling silver jewellery gets discoloured as time passes, the only downside there is, but a little polish will make it look new in no time. Never use any cleaners other than specified, be cautious not to apply much force while cleaning as this could bend the jewellery out of shape or may cause permanent damage. Sterling silver has always been a choice of status since antiquity and always will be! Preserving your jewellery with good care will keep it intact forevermore.
Sterling silver is not just used in making jewellery, yet also used in high-status kitchenware, emblems, seals and other metalworks.
