What does 925 sterling silver mean?

The numbers that usually accompany the denomination of silver tell us how many grams of silver an alloy contains per 1000 grams of final product. For example, if you buy any product in the Nathnit store of 925 sterling silver it means that the piece you have purchased is made of an alloy that contains 925 grams of silver per 1000 grams of product.
