  Sterling silver:  
  Sterling silver is one of the most popular, affordable, and durable metals. While natural silver is harder than natural gold, silver needs to be alloyed to create jewellery. Silver's most common alloy is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. For authentication, look for a sterling silver stamp of 925, Ster., or Sterling.
