What is sterling silver? Sterling silver is made of 92.5% silver and 7.5% of other metals, usually copper. Mixing pure silver with other metals is what gives it its strength and durability and makes it suitable for daily use. The only con for sterling silver, it does tarnish. It can turn black and leave marks on your skin and it can be more for some than others. Cleaning easily remedies this but there is an alternative...Argentium silver.
To find out more about Argentium silver and creating a piece of hand stamped jewellery from this precious metal stay tuned for our next blog post!
