Characteristics of silver 925

1. What is 925 silver? The difference between 925 silver and silver color products

Generally, silver accessories are often made of a material called silver 925, and are sometimes also written as [SV925].

"925" refers to the percentage of silver contained (purity), which means that 92.5% of the material is silver. The remaining 8.5% is mainly mixed with copper and other materials such as aluminum.

Silver is a very soft metal, so if it is made of 100% silver, it is not suitable for actual use such as accessories. Therefore, by mixing copper, which is a hard metal, it becomes hard and easy to handle.

925 silver is called sterling silver.

"STERLING" is a word that means "genuine, fine, pure" in English. In the UK, 925 silver is defined as "pure silver", so even if the content is 92.5%, the name "STERLING" is still used. It's on.

<Silver 925>

925 silver is made by carefully polishing the material itself to give it a silver shine.

The biggest advantage is that it is easy to care for and maintain, and by repolishing it, you can keep it looking as good as new forever.

Silver 925 products are made of silver, so the material itself has high strength.

Products that are further hammered have even stronger hardness and shine.

<Silver color products>

Most silver-colored products reproduce the silver color by plating the alloy.
Discoloration occurs when the plating peels off.

In such cases, it may not be possible to restore the condition with care alone, and as a result, it will be necessary to incur high repair costs and have it plated.

Most of the metal materials used in these products melt at low temperatures and are not very strong. I don't think there are many things that you can buy once and use forever. When you want to casually enjoy trends, the biggest advantage is that you can incorporate fashionable accessories at a low price.

2. Presence of allergic reaction to 925 silver

In conclusion, even 925 silver can cause an allergic reaction.
However, silver itself is a metal that does not easily cause allergies.
In the first place, metal allergy refers to a reaction in which a small amount of metal dissolved in sweat or the like enters the body and the body tries to expel the foreign substance.

So, what are the substances that tend to cause allergic reactions?

It is an alloy of copper, zinc, etc. that is included in 7.5% of silver 925.
If these substances dissolve in small amounts, they may cause an allergic reaction.

However, since silver 925 is coated on silver-colored products to prevent silver ions that cause metal allergies from leaching out, it is not completely free from allergic reactions, but compared to ordinary silver-colored products, I can say that there are no significant allergic reactions.

3. Will 925 silver rust?

925 silver basically does not rust.

Generally speaking, "rust" is a phenomenon in which oxygen and moisture cause reactions such as oxidation on the surface of metal, resulting in corrosion.

It occurs in a variety of metals, including iron, copper, aluminum, stainless steel, and brass, excluding gold and platinum.

Oxidation = rust.

This does not mean that it will not rust at all, but it will oxidize and rust only under very specific conditions. It will not rust in daily life. Please rest assured.

Most of the silver used for accessories is 925. It is 92.5% silver and the other 7.5% contains other metals such as copper.

Silver is a very soft material.
To make it strong enough to use as an accessory, it is mixed with other metals such as copper to form an alloy. The other metal may oxidize and become dull, but if you wear it regularly, there is no need to worry about it rusting.

Sulfurization causes silver to appear dark. Silver and blackheads are inseparable.

If you love 925 silver accessories, have you ever heard or experienced it?

The silver turning black is not rust.

Sulfidation occurs when hydrogen sulfide in the air, sulfur from human sebum and hot springs, etc. adheres to the surface, producing silver sulfide on the surface.

Silver turns black due to sulfurization, not oxidation.

If the blackhead is mild, you can remove it by wiping it with a soft cloth.

Furthermore, if you maintain it regularly, it will be less likely to cause dark spots.

Therefore, there is a difference between sulfurization and oxidation between 925 silver and silver color products, and 925 silver will sulfurize and darken, but it will not rust and can be used for a long time.

Darkness and discoloration are formed on the surface, so if you maintain it regularly and wipe it off without leaving it on if it gets wet, the darkening or discoloration will return to its original state.

On the other hand, when silver-colored products are exposed to water, they oxidize, causing rust and discoloration.

4.Summary about silver 925

From the above points, silver 925 is

  • There is a shine
  • Does not rust
  • Even if the color changes, it will return to its original state with maintenance (gold will not return)
  • Less likely to cause allergic reactions

*Gold-colored 925 silver products are coated with a thin layer of gold over the silver, so even if you take care of it, it seems difficult to return to the same color once it changes color.

Due to these characteristics, it can be used for a longer time than silver colored products.

If it inevitably gets rusty, it will look bad, smell bad, and you won't be able to use it for a long time.

If you're going to give a gift, you'll want to give something that can be used for a long time. Also, since you want to give something that is safe to give to anyone, you should choose 925 silver, which has fewer allergic reactions.
