Is 925 sterling silver good?
Real 925 sterling silver jewelry consists of 92.5 percent pure silver and the rest in some kind of alloy, typically copper.
This is much different from silver plated, where a layer of silver is placed over another metal or alloy, and can be scraped off or tarnished easily.
What does 925 mean on a silver ring?
Real 925 sterling silver jewelry typically has certain marks on it to indicate its purity.
These marks include “925”, “.925” or “S925”, to represent the 92.5 percent pure silver that exists. If these marks are not present, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s not sterling silver.
