9 . About Stainless Steel and Silver Jewelry

 

1.Whats the difference between 304 and 316 Stainless Steel?

While the two most popular grades of stainless steel might seem identical at a glance, they hold important differences that can lead to substantial savings over the life of your product depending on your intended uses.

All stainless steels contain a mix of iron and chromium at various levels. But the exact mix—and other additions — are what create the differences between grades.The most popular 304 grade stainless contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel — though other alloys exist within the same grade.

 

Stainless steels of the 316 grade include less chromium — often around 16% — but increase nickel levels and add molybdenum to the mix.Most stainless steel ordered around the world is Grade 304.It offers the standard corrosion resistance, formability, strength, and easy maintenance for which stainless is known.

While 316 comes in second in terms of quantities sold, it offers vastly superior corrosion resistance to chlorides and acids.So it allows you to clean your stainless more often using stronger cleansers and detergents with little worry of damage or altering the appearance of the stainless steel.

 

2.Whats the difference between 925 silver and pure silver?

Sterling silver is an alloy, or combination of metal types. Unlike pure silver, which contains 99.9% elemental silver (Ag), sterling silver (925) contains one or more additional metals that add strength to the otherwise delicate material. Pure silver is naturally very soft, and would easily bend or break if used for jewelry without being blended with a stronger metal,making it more suitable and durable for use in jewelry and housewares like silverware.
