Sterling silver is made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% any other metal alloy. It is considered the highest grade of silver after pure silver.

Sterling silver is an ideal material when making jewelry. Any silver with a pure silver content higher than 92.5% is too pliable to be used in jewelry.

Sterling silver was often used in fine dining sets from 1840-1940. Use of sterling silver dining sets declined after WWII, when everyone became too busy to sit down to a fancy meal every night. It is still commonly used in jewelry and home decor today.
