What is Sterling Silver made from?

Sterling Silver is an alloy of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% pure copper. It is used in jewellery because of it's beautiful white colour and workable malleability. Silver will tarnish over time, however the alloy I use is a new low tarnishing variety.

See my jewellery cleaning & care tips for more information of keeping your silver jewellery looking its best. 

* Sustainably sourced, recycled silver.
