What Exactly is Sterling Silver?by Mittali Dubey A unit of Kota Shree Bullion World Pvt. Ltd.
Why is “Sterling” silver considered so special? It is because it has emerged as the finest balance between the practical and the beautiful. Silver is a mushy metal and it needs to be stiffened to be completely functional. Silver jewellery can face some unplanned alterations if the metal is not fortified to avoid bending.
In Sterling Silver, the metal is assorted with an alloy which strengthens the metal. In most of the cases Copper is used. A few add-on are used time to time that claims to reduce tarnishing. Platinum, Zinc and Germanium are infrequently used as alloys. This creates the basis for the generally followed sterling silver standard. The majorly followed standard is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other alloys. It is also expressed widely as the millenarian fineness of 925.
