About Silver

Silver is a naturally occurring metal, chemical symbol Ag.

The metal in its natural state is soft, but this can be altered by alloying the natural silver with other metals.

Jewellery is traditionally made from an alloy of 92.5% silver with 7.5% copper. This makes it harder, and gives it a lower melting point. This alloy is often referred to as Sterling Silver or 925 silver. There are alternative alloys of silver for different applications, but for Silver Jewellery 925 Sterling Silver is recognised as the most desirable. It is undesirable to add Nickle to the alloy, since a growing number of people find they have an undesirable skin reaction.

The silver is worked by a silversmith at room temperature using a carefully selected implement and some very carefully directed hammer blows.

Our Silver Jewellery

All our silver is of 925 grade, and is therefore Nickle free, and suitable for people with sensitive skin.

 Some of our pieces are described as Sterling Silver, others as 925 grade silver. Both are the same high quality 92.5% silver content.
