925 sterling silver

What does it mean if Silver says 925?

Real 925 sterling silver jewelry typically has certain marks on it to indicate its purity.

These marks include “925”, “.925” or “S925”, to represent the 92.5 percent pure silver that exists.

If these marks are not present, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s not sterling silver.

What is the difference between 925 and sterling silver?

When 92.5% of pure silver is mixed with 7.5% of other metals (often copper, nickel or zinc) the resulting alloy is called sterling silver.

So, to wrap up, there is no difference between the terms sterling silver and 925 silver, however the standards of sterling silver may differ depending on the country it comes from
