Tania Glover, farji kumar,

925 Sterling Silver is 92.5% parts silver and 7.5% parts alloy combined 
into silver jewelry.
Sterling Silver is the whitest of all the metals. Fine silver is 
generally too soft for most jewelry applications. Sterling Silver is a 
mix of 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper.  Silver products sometimes 
may be marked 925, which means that 925 parts per thousand are pure 
silver.  99.9% silver is called "Fine silver." Sterling components and 
jewelry made in the USA are often stamped "Sterling." Goods made for 
international trade are often marked "925" indicating the 92.5% 
fineness. "Coin" silver is used in some countries and could be 
marked "900" or "800" depending on fineness. 
Silver is the most reflective and affordable of the precious 
metals.Sterling silver is the standard of quality for articles 
containing 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper.
