What is "SILVER FILLED"?
-meets the same legal requirement of "gold filled" as it is 10% sterling silver which is bonded to a white brass core...this is 30x's thicker than any silver plate
-it is half hard and will work harden
-the white brass core is barely noticeable when you look at an open ring-picture 2, and not noticeable at all when properly closed...and "heals" to a good degree when cut with cutters as in picture 1
-tarnishes, oxidized, polishes just like sterling silver
-can be hammered, soldered, textured
-has the identical look and feel of sterling silver
-is HALF the price of sterling silver
-is Made in the USA
We have been looking for alternatives to solid sterling silver every since it became expensive. We offer several: stainless steel, fine silver with a copper core....and now Silver Filled!
And we have tried OTHER Silver Filled wire and found them to have: visible copper core, soft, thin coating, inconsistent sizing and fragile.
Materials: wire that is made in the usa, does not contain nickel or lead, silver filled square wire.
