Difference between .999 fine silver and .925 sterling silver 

Sterling is the benchmark for jewellery quality for silver. It contains 92.5% silver as an alloy. Usually, copper makes up the remaining part. The silver most frequently found in Indian jewellery stores is sterling silver. 

The metal that comes closest to the pure element silver is fine silver. It is marked with a.999, which denotes a purity of 99.9%. Since it is so delicate, this variety of silver is easily dented, scratched, and changes shape. Since jewellery prepared using this silver does not wear well over time, it is used less frequently.

Unlike sterling, fine silver has a more vitreous sheen but is more delicate and brittle. The additional metals in the sterling silver alloy make the material harder, making it more durable. The colour and the shine that customers value are also produced through alloy additions; thus it results in high demand for jewellery making.
