Generally, sterling is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Some sterling silver jewelry is plated with 14kt-18kt gold and referred to as "vermeil," or "gold over sterling."

This is a lovely ring with just the right amount of sparkle. I got it in green amethyst and the earrings to match. I was surprised at how versatile the ring is - goes with all the earthtones in my wardrobe, plus black of course! I'm very happy with this purchase. Looks much richer than its price tag. Nice to get it on sale, too!
