958 and 970 silver?


#1

I work predominantly in sterling silver. A beautiful precious metal with an affordable cost. However I have taken interest in both 958 “Britannia” silver and 970 silver. What are the differences between these and regular sterling other than purity of course. Are they noticeably softer, whiter or more resistant to tarnish and firescale? Should I consider using these metals in favour of regular sterling?
