As far as concerned to pure gold or pure silver jewellery we can say 925 silver jewellery or 916 gold jewellery are more good to buy. The purpose to not adding copper or other materiel while making jewellery more profitable for jeweller rather than this process is completely beneficial for customer because they are getting long time uses jewellery. The cause behind this is the pure 99.99 % gold or silver are very soft by its nature so it is not possible to give them a shape to make a fashionable and trendy jewellery.
