What is the difference between 925 silver and 990 silver? Which silver jewellery is better?

Speaking of the current silver jewellery 925 and 990, what is the difference between the two? Which one is better?Let me talk about the difference between the two first. In fact, 925 and 990 silver are two common specifications of silver jewellery, although at a glance, they are only a little bit between the tens and single digits, and I think there should be no difference. In fact, there are. To be more specific, the history of 925 silver is longer. We started to have 925 silver very early, so the craftsmanship is more mature. In other words, 925 silver is a relatively mature process with silver content, and it can better combine process and purity.

Just like the gold jewellery that many of our girls like, although we all know that the purity of a thousand pure gold is better, in fact, we have to do a lot of inlaid crafts, and we still use 18k gold. 925 silver is also similar in principle. Relatively speaking, it can make more shapes and meet more process requirements. Some of the jadeites inlaid with silver that my friends have seen are all made of 925 silver, instead of 990 for inlays. There are many more beautiful shapes that can only be made with 925 silver.

And 990 silver is mainly aimed at people with sensitive skin, such as children. Although it is not good for children to wear jewelry when they are too young. But now it is true that many children have begun to wear jewelry, especially the elderly in many places, or parents still have a custom of wearing silver bracelets to their babies. For children with more delicate skin, as well as those who are more prone to metal allergies, 990 silver is relatively more suitable for such audiences. Of course, there are many styles of 990, but the higher the purity, the softer and easy to deform, and maintenance will be more troublesome. The effect of setting may not be as good as 925 silver.

Knowing the main difference between 925 silver and 990 silver, the question of which is better can be solved. In terms of purity, 990 is definitely better, and in terms of hypoallergenic, 990 is definitely better. But in terms of process maturity, 925 silver is better, and 925 silver is also better in terms of resistance to deformation.

So, who is better depends entirely on which effect you need more. It’s also like the thousand pure gold and karat gold of gold jewelry that many girls like. If you like good purity, it is 990, but we have to accept that the 990 will definitely be more easily deformed when worn. If you like complicated designs, especially if you like personal customization, then choose 925 silver.

Of course, what I’m talking about are some generalizations that I know, not absolutes. If you meet a great master, it is not impossible for him to use 990 silver to make exquisite and complex silver jewelry. After all, we have not met in this world, and there are too many craftsmen who have not seen. If we really encounter such a master, we have to be practical, and the labor costs may not be the same as normal labor costs.

Okay, that’s all about 925 and 990 silver. If there is something wrong or missing, please correct me.
