Silver is one of the world’s best-known precious metals, and has been used to produce ornamental items for thousands of years. As purer alloys such as Britannia silver (95.8%) and fine silver (99.9%) are too soft for most jewelry applications, sterling silver (92.5%) is by far the most commonly encountered within the marketplace.

This degree of silver purity is denoted by an assay mark that has been stamped onto an inconspicuous part of an object, with 1000 representing the metal in its purest form (i.e. sterling would be “925”). Furthermore, additional markings may be present to signify the item’s manufacturer, testing location, testing year and, for older pieces, acknowledgement that the necessary duty was paid.

Silver’s relative abundance means that its value is usually around fifty times lower than an equivalent weight of gold, so large quantities of pure “999” silver must be purchased for significant monetary investments.
