Sterling silver is often called 925 silver because to be sterling, a silver alloy must contain at least 92.5% pure silver. All of these sterling silver beads, jewelry findings, wire, and chain fit that strict definition. This means you can relax in the knowledge that you're buying high quality! The benefits of working with sterling silver in your jewelry go beyond quality and panache: it's a soft metal that's easy to work with, and you get to choose whether to antique your silver jewelry or polish it to a bright shine.
All of our sterling silver is nickel free, lead free and cadmium free, making it one of the most hyopallergenic metals for designing earrings. If you, or your customers, are allergic to sterling silver, you may want to try Niobium.
