    Mondays 9/8c on Science
    Alloy and pure silver are poured into stainless steel molds to create the sterling silver used in many jewelry products. Lasers then help etch designs onto the surface of the pieces.

    The end of this video is wrong - by adding copper to sterling silver it will tarnish, if it was pure silver it would not tarnish. The copper is added to give it strength as pure silver is very soft.

      Pure silver does tarnish maybe not to the same extent as sterling but it does tarnish and it's not as soft as ppl make it seem either.

    While soldering what paste is used ? Because I saw while joining two metals before heating they applied some kind of paste. Please help me..

      That is paste solder - instead of little snippets of silver solder that is normally used..

    This is how the very worst quality of jewellery is made. it's thin and poorly put together. mostly done by machine. Traditionally hand made jewellery is made to last using a lot of precise skill and training. I'm not criticizing. just making a clear distinction.

      @Banana Warrior I thought synthetic diamonds had a better quality than genuine diamonds in all aspects except for color. Was I wrong about this? I'm not a chemist as you can probably tell.

      @Argumengenic Hyperloquaciousrrhea moron probably meant synthetic diamonds which are of the same quality, not worse

      Cheating how? The goldsmiths and silversmiths from a few hundred years ago could call "that's cheating" when using the mechanically operated drawplates and roller mills we have now, versus what they had to use. It's not "cheating" - it's called *Progress!*

      "HOOKER" earrings?? Where does it say or even imply such a thing? Geeesh- where you guys get such ideas! 😒
      Ad, "that guy" didn't burn himself as you "felt" he should because he's obviously an experienced bench jeweler. Experienced, well trained people don't do such things.

    anyone know where I can get .999 pure silver jewelry??? thanks

    • Shari D57
      Shari D57 9 个月 前

      If you really want .999 for some reason, it's simple enough to do a Google search, or whatever browser you are using, to find what you are looking for.
      Just out of curiosity, why would you want it? It doesn't make superior quality jewelry to either traditional Sterling Silver, or the newer and brighter, more durable and much less tarnishable Argentium Silver. My grandfather was a very talented goldsmith, silversmith and gem cutter, and he taught me a great deal about jewelry before he died. I have spent the years since then doing much research on my own, including personal experience in owning and wearing many kinds of jewelry made of many different materials. I can absolutely promise you that the Argentium Silver is much higher quality, lasts longer, doesn't tarnish hardly at all (If it ever does - none of mine has yet, and I've had it for several years) and any design work in it, or made from it, is brighter white, stronger and more durable than any other silver alloy on the market, and especially pure silver. (And no, I have no connection whatsoever with the people or companies either producing or selling it in any way.)

      Juan Lopez you wouldn't want that. its too malleable and does not last unless you are extremely careful with it. Not to mention the price tags associated with them.

      Understanding the techniques involved, and the fact that in this case, and many others, precious metals (and some not so precious, such as aluminum) can be continually flattened, by using the proper machinery and techniques, from a 1/4" thick to less than that of a sheet of paper to make it usable, and still maintaining its strength by forming it into certain shapes, such as tubing is key in producing any kind of jewelry, or other decorative items.
      Take aluminum foil for instance. How thin is that? Certainly it started out in a much heavier form when it was delivered to the forming mill to be produced into such thin sheets. And it's much thinner in the box we buy at the grocery than this silver jewelry is when it is made.
      Back a few thousand years ago, or even a few hundred, when gold was processed in much cruder ways from the form in which it was originally found into beautiful jewelry and art objects, it was transformed from the relatively small, heavy pieces which came from the smelter's first production to the jeweler's and artist's last by hammering it by hand into sheets many, many times thinner than this.
