What is German Silver
German silver and sterling silver might look the same as they have the same shine and look. However, sterling silver has 92.5% pure silver mixed with 7.5% of copper; whereas German silver doesn’t have any actual silver metal present in it and is purely an alloy of zinc, nickel and copper. Thus, German silver as a metal has negligible monetary value. German silver items are priced on the basis of the quality and perfection of the object itself and not particularly on the basis of the weight of the item. It is also used in heating coils because of its high electrical resistance.
German Silver Gift Items
German silver gifts are often chosen over sterling silver as they are comparatively cheaper and look almost like silver items. Moreover, they are more sturdy and corrosion resistant; hence they make for good tableware and decorative items.
