Jewelry 101: Sterling Silver
Yes. Sterling Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper.
Fine silver (99.9% pure) is generally too soft for producing functional objects. For this reason, silver is usually alloyed with copper to give it strength, while at the same time preserving the ductility and beauty of the metal.
