The Prince Company Light Cup, crafted from sterling silver, is for folks who would rather have a price-point item. It has a smaller diameter, so some folks call it a juice cup. It weighs 60 grams, a bit more than what the standard-issue cups from traditional manufacturers weigh.
The Prince Company distributes fine silver gifts and jewelry to retailers throughout North America. Their customers include large brand name retailers like Barney’s New York, GUMP’s of San Francisco, Henry Birks & Sons in Canada, as well as over 100 family-owned jewelry stores like us here at Brown Goldsmiths.
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and usually 7.5% by mass of copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. The sterling alloy originated in continental Europe and was being used for commerce as early as the 12th century in the area that is now northern Germany.
