what is 925 silver

The highest quality silver for jewelry is called Sterling Silver or 925 Silver. It is called 925 silver because it is 92.5% pure silver. The other 7.5% is another metal (typically copper), which helps strengthen and stabilize the metal.

Simply put, it is the purest form of silver for making jewelry that maintains its beauty over time. Because it is a stable alloy, it will not tarnish over time. It is more workable by jewelry adjusters. 925 silver will not bleed or shed onto your skin when you wear it.

Is pure silver better?

For jewelry, 925 silver is far better. Pure silver is also known as fine silver and it is not as good for making jewelry for several reasons: - pure silver is not ductile, meaning it can't be easily formed into jewelry or adjusted to fit - pure silver is soft, making it less functional - pure silver will mix with small amounts of hydrogen sulfide in air and will tarnish
