Are Sterling Silver Earrings Durable?

Are sterling silver earrings durable? Let us take a look at the chemical composition to find out. Sterling silver is an alloy composed of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% trace metals. These additional metals are typically copper, zinc, and small traces of nickel. This combination has been used since the 1300’s.

It may not seem like much, but including these metals ensures that sterling silver earrings are more durable. Pure silver is soft and malleable, unfit for creating fine jewellery. On the other hand, 925 sterling silver is tough and long lasting. When properly cared for, sterling silver earrings will always stay in sparkling condition.
