As a leading silver jewelry manufacturer based out of Hong Kong, one of the most common questions we get from our customers is “what is 999.9 pure silver jewelry or 999 pure silver jewelry, and how good is it”.
First, you should know the difference between pure silver jewelry and sterling silver jewelry. We sell both types of silver jewelry. Real silver or pure silver jewelry is very soft and can be easily molded to make rings, bangles, etc.
But if the silver is 100% pure, it is also easy to break, which is why an alloy is added to the silver, such as nickel or copper. So, you have descriptions such as 925 sterling silver, 999 pure silver jewelry, etc. The numbers are an indication of the purity of silver.
What Does 999 and 999.9 Pure Silver Mean?
999.9 pure silver (Fine Silver) is pure silver jewelry that is made of 99.99% silver and 0.01% of an alloy such as copper. The copper alloy is added to the pure silver jewelry to give it the firmness it needs and to ensure that the jewelry pieces are not brittle and do not break easily.
Similarly 999 pure silver jewelry (Fine Silver) is made from 99.9% pure silver just .1% of a copper alloy. 925 sterling silver is made from 92.5% pure silver as much as 7.5% of a copper alloy.
Hope that clears the confusion!
How to know that the silver jewelry purchased from PRJewel.com or from other online jewelry stores is made from 999 pure silver?
There are many ways to find out about the purity of silver that you buy online, such as from our store. You can take the products to a local jeweler you trust fully and ask them to perform a chemical test. They will charge you a small fee for this, and tell you exactly how pure the silver jewelry really is. You could also perform the chemical test by yourself at home, but it’s better if it is done by a professional.
