A: Sterling silver is not solid silver and should never be described as such – Sterling Silver 925 is an alloy made from 92.5% silver and 7.5% alloy. Sterling Silver is harder and better wearing than pure or solid silver – pure silver dents, scratches and bends extremely easily.
Q: Why aren’t all your Sterling Silver findings hallmarked?
A: Sterling Silver items that weigh below 7.78g are not required by law to carry the 925 hallmark and this is why you will find lighter items such as earwires, headpins and some toggles do not carry the 925 mark – this helps to keep the prices lower as hallmarking such small items is expensive and does push up costs considerably.
