When you buy silver cutlery or other silver décor, you can be sure it will last for generations to come. Silver tableware is beautiful, resists tarnish and is a traditional decoration in homes around the world. Copper is mixed with silver to strengthen it for use as cutlery, bowls and decorative items.
Sterling silver (or 925 fineness) has been the standard for silver hollowware and silver flatware since the 14th century. However, some less-expensive tableware is plated with a silver coating that is 20 to 30 microns thick. Either version brings signature sophistication to the table.
