Sterling silver is made up of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% alloy such as Zinc. The reason we use sterling silver over pure silver for our jewellery is because pure silver is too soft. Sterling silver is significantly stronger and more durable making it perfect for jewellery. All of our sterling silver pieces are stamped with 925 and are Nickel and Copper free.
Why we rhodium plate our sterling silver jewellery? As it is part of the platinum family, rhodium plating our silver means your jewellery is more durable, more resistant to scratching, and more lustrous. It is also hypoallergenic and creates a bright metal surface that resists tarnishing.
