Our range of sterling silver jewellery findings are made from 925 silver. Sterling silver is sometimes abbreviated to STS. As we buy from several reputable manufacturers within Europe you will find some of our sterling silver jewellery findings will and some will not have a hallmark. You will find that any jewellery findings under 7.78g is too light for a hallmark and of course some jewellery findings are physically too small to be marked!. Sterling silver findings are used when the maker is unsure of whether the user will react to the low nickle plating on standard findings. Using sterling silver findings on your jewellery also makes the jewellery unique by making it more precious and adding to it's individuality.
