Household sterling or silverware includes tableware, cutlery, and other household items made of sterling silver. Sterling silver flatware is made of an alloy containing 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. The copper gives it strength, since pure silver is too soft. To be marked “sterling,” it must have a minimum of 92.5% pure silver (although some older pieces use lower amounts of pure silver such as  .800 – 80% and .500 – 50%). Silver requires a good deal of care; it tarnishes and must be hand polished often. Sterling silver (or otherwise) must be refined to .999 pure silver. Only then it can be used for applications like medicine, electronics, brazing alloys, chemical equipment, catalysis, and photography.
