Properties and Uses of Sterling Silver

Sterling Silver is an alloy nominally consisting of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper.
Pure silver is too soft to be used for some applications. Sterling silver maintains some of the look and ductility of pure silver while adding the hardness necessary for certain applications, such as flatware and machined screws, as well as some musical instruments such as flutes and saxophones.
