Mother Of Pearl Earring sterling silver is a fine, precious metal. Its colour is silver-white and it is often used in jewellery. Silver has to be alloyed (mixed) with other metals in order to use in jewellery production. This mixing of metals makes it more durable and rigid.
Jewellery and Silverware are traditionally made from Sterling Silver (standard silver), an alloy of 92.5% silver with 7.5% copper.
