Everything You Need to Know About Sterling Silver
Written by Sadie Pratt
What exactly is sterling silver?
Sterling silver indicates that at least 92.5% of that piece is pure silver, where the remaining 7.5% can be composed of another metal. In the jewelry world, the other metal combined is usually copper. The combination of other metal added in with the silver allows the metal to last longer with better quality. All of our silver pieces are made with sterling silver to guarantee stability and resilience.
A Little History…
The Benefits of Sterling Silver Jewelry
For us… Sterling Silver is a beautiful material that is malleable to work with. It can be hammered, shaped and molded into whatever design we envision. It allows us to create unique pieces, using both simple and textured techniques to make our jewelry designs special!
For you… Who doesn’t want an authentic piece of jewelry that captures simplistic beauty? Sterling Silver is real silver that is both lightweight and easy to care for. It is perfect as a stand alone piece, or perhaps in a layering design with other sterling silver pieces or even with gold jewelry! We think silver and gold pieces can be paired together or stand alone, it’s really up to you! That’s the fun of jewelry; it has no rules!
