Is a higher percentage of silver good?

Not all silver is created equal. At internal-external, we use Argentium 935 silver in our pieces, and here are two reasons why it's better than 925 sterling silver.

Firstly, 935 silver contains a higher percentage of pure silver than 925 silver. While 925 silver is made up of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, 935 silver is made up of 93.5% pure silver and 6.5% other metals. This means that 935 silver is more resistant to tarnishing and will retain its shine and luster for longer periods of time.

Secondly, 935 silver is often of a higher density than 925 silver. This is because the higher percentage of pure silver in 935 silver. Coupled with our strong shapes, the combination of overall mass, and brilliance is a better investment in the long run. Pairing this with the included life-time care with each jewelry purchase (to read more, click here: Ring Refurbishment Process).
