Sterling Silver Handcrafted Pendants & Accessories from Designer Jewellers in Brisbane

Sterling silver is actually an alloy of silver, containing 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, normally copper.

Fine silver (99.9% pure) is generally too soft for making most jewellery items, and so it is alloyed with copper to give it strength and durability.

Like other white metals, fine silver is fairly resistant to tarnishing, however, when alloyed with other metals, normally copper, it can react with oxygen.

Other white metals can be used in the alloy (at extra cost), which will improve resistance to tarnishing and preserve the metal’s whiteness.
