The alloy used in sterling silver jewelry making must uphold a standard silver content of 92.5% because silver of 99.9% purity is too soft for producing functional objects, so it is usually alloyed with copper to give it strength while preserving its beauty.
Although sterling silver jewelry making produces some magnificent pieces, the precious metal really reached the heights of its popularity as tableware. The pinnacle of the silver craze was during the 50-year period from 1870 to 1920, when domestic cutlery and dishes sometimes included up to 100 different pieces. In conjunction with this, formal dinners went from three courses to sometimes 10 or more.
