Sterling silver is an alloy of 92½ % Silver (.925) and 7½ % (.075) of a base metal - usually copper. Pure silver is almost perfectly white, very ductile and malleable. It is considered too soft for jewelry or flatware use, therefore the addition of small amounts of a base metal serve to harden the alloy.

Nu-gold is a brass alloy that has been specially formulated for jewelry and is also known as “red brass,” “Merlin’s Gold,” and “Jeweler’s Bronze.” It has a rich warm color and if highly polished resembles gold without the high cost of gold. Nu-gold contains 85% copper and 15% zinc and no nickle. It tarnishes considerable slower than copper, and is easy to clean. I’ve been using this metal a lot more in my jewelry as the color is a great complement to many gemstones. The look of Gold without the high price!
