In Jewelry, the standard for sterling silver has remained unchanged throughout the centuries since 1300 when King Edward I of England established the early trade practice rule for silversmiths, by means of decreeing that sterling must consist of 92.5 percent pure silver metal alloyed with 7.6
As for today, the term "sterling" refers to the composition of the metal, and not to the weight of a finished item either small or large. Sterling Silver Charms sometimes may be marked as 925, in which case meaning that 925 parts per thousand of the piece are pure silver.
Silver-plated is not silver metal, just a layer of silver bonded to any other base metal, and vermeil (pronounced as "ver-may") is a special type of gold plated product, consisting of a base of sterling silver coated or plated with gold.
Jewelry made of silver parts and gold parts must carry dual designations such as "Sterling and xxK". According to the law, all quality-marked silver must bear the name or an American registered trademark of the company's name or person that will
stand behind such mark.
It is renown that silver is much more plentiful than gold, but tends to tarnish, making it less popular as the metal to be used in some forms of jewelry. As with gold, silver is too soft that it simply cannot be used in its pure state and must be combined other metals to enhance its durability.
