talkingfashion curiosities on the history of 925 silver from the site 1st quarter finances: (...)"The use of sterling silver began in Europe as a form of currency in the 12th century, and the pilgrims brought the alloy with them to Colonial America where it was used for both currency and functional objects, such as buckles and coffee pots. Due to the lack of an assay facility (which is a facility that is able to detect the composition of a metal), silversmiths in the New World followed the same standards and conventions of the London Goldsmiths Company and added their silversmith mark on each piece they crafted until an assay office was established in 1814, allowing them to set their own standards for silversmithing.
One of the most famous silversmiths was Paul Revere. In fact, he took charge of a silver rolling mill following the Revolutionary War. He was able to increase production and do it better and more uniformly than most other silversmiths, setting the standard for consistent and efficient production with his bestselling products such as sterling silver flatware.
Due to the mass production of goods brought on by the Industrial Revolution, silversmithing by hand quickly became a less desirable trade. Between the late 1800s and early 1900s, owning sterling silver flatware was the fashionable thing to do, and many companies were created to meet the increasing demand. However, by World War II, the craze had come to a halt due to the high labor costs to make the beautiful pieces. By that time, only the wealthy wanted the fancy flatware for large dinners, while other consumers wanted less intricate pieces that were easier to wash.
In the modern era, sterling silver is still widely used in a variety of objects that you probably see and use every day".(...)
