Silver 925 chain manufactured to high standard that is 92.5%
silver and this standard is
excepted worldwide. Some jewelry may be rhodium plated but
it is still 925
Sterling silver hallmark is 925.
Most our silver chain is made in Europe and majority from
Italy that makes huge rolls of many kilos of silver chain
with sophisticated chain
These rolls are exported to Asia where they are cut to size
and hand welded with claps, which is labour intensive.
Machinery can do this but its costly, so Asian factory’s
make many of these chains and silver necklaces.
The most popular silver chain is the snake chain followed by
Australian made heavy duty silver bracelets.
Silver earrings that are blown hollow inside look attractive
and large and are light weight.
Silver rings are popular with the younger generation.
Some Indian factories manufacture 980 silver which is higher
silver content than 925
925 silver has greater strength, due to more copper than 980
silver, but 980 silver does not tarnish as much as 925
silver and 980 does have
softer matt glow than 925 silver
Both are popular, but the west prefers the stronger 925
silver and Asia prefers the softer 980 silver
