Sterling silver-filled headpins are made of a durable outer layer of sterling silver surrounding a copper-alloy core. These items are 10% sterling silver, making them 1/10 silver filled. Headpins have additional silver plating for uniformity and are completed with an anti-tarnish coating to preserve the beauty. Headpins handle like sterling silver and can be soldered.
For optimal results, use nylon jaw pliers or pliers dipped in Tool Magic® heavy-duty rubber coating when working with sterling silver-filled headpins to prevent scratching or marring.
