Quick test to check the purity of your Silver Jewellery!

Sterling Silver Jewellery has always been in trend, however, there are always questions or worries regarding not only the quality but also the purity of the silver used. Here, we are going to show you the simplest, easiest, and hassle free method for checking the purity of any 925 Sterling Silver piece. (P.S. You don't need any materials/equipment.)

All pieces of 925 Sterling Silver Jewellery have 925 stamped (engraved) onto them by the manufacturers themselves. This shows the amount of silver used in the piece. Since Silver is a soft metal, to make it suitable to be used in Jewellery it has to be mixed with some other metals. All silver jewellery is made with 92.5% silver and 7.5% of some other metals. This ensures that the jewellery is sturdy and suitable for daily wear.

All you have to do to check for the purity of Silver is look for the '925 stamp' on the piece. This is the easiest way to check for the quantity of silver and ensure the purity.
