Why Fine Silver?

Hi and welcome to our first blog post!  We thought a good one to start with would be to explain the difference between fine silver and sterling silver.  We often get asked this when people enquire about our jewellery.

The price of keepsake jewellery is higher than that of sterling silver, but there’s a reason for this!  Fine silver, unlike sterling silver is 99.9% pure silver and is therefore a more precious, delicate metal.  Sterling silver tends to be made up of 92.5% silver and has other metals mixed with it such as copper, nickel or zinc to make it stronger and more durable.  Therefore because of its purity fine silver is also a great choice for allergy sufferers.

With it’s organic feel fine silver is the perfect match for fingerprint and handprint jewellery and adds to the uniqueness of the product.

I hope this post helps you understand the difference in price between both products.
