Note 800 silver is a silver alloy that is 80% pure silver and 20% other metals. It is also known as International Coin Silver. This alloy was common in the European mainland in the 19th and early 20th centuries, but it is not commonly used in jewelry in the United States.

 

800 silver is softer than sterling silver (925), which makes it more difficult to work with. However, it is also more resistant to tarnishing. 800 silver is often used for jewelry that is not intended to be worn every day, such as costume jewelry or heirloom pieces.
