    • The silver portions of this piece are made from a sterling silver alloy.
    • Alloys are combinations of metals used for practical and artistic reasons such as durability.
    • Using 100% of any metal might make the product result entirely too soft to endure.
    • The term "sterling" refers to a specific amount of silver in an alloy.
    • The term "sterling" refers specifically to an alloy of silver that is 925 parts pure silver and 75 parts copper, thereby increasing the strength of the silver.
    • We aren't metallurgists and we cannot ever be 100% certain about anything.
    • Magnets will stick to ferrous metals.
    • Magnets attract to ferrous metals such as iron, nickel, cobalt, certain steels and other alloys.
    • Brass, aluminum, copper, and most stainless steels, however, are non ferrous, and magnets are not attracted to them.
    • For more information, please read our Library articles on alloys and visit your nearest metallurgist, or geologist, or ask at your local library.
