The Charm of (tangible) Photographs

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:56:39 PM in The 925 (32)

In today's digital world, we rarely print or 'develop' photos anymore. We just point, shoot and keep them in our devices. But not to move backwards, I still find charm in having physical copies of my valued memories. And I want them to last, a long time too. The more precious the memory is, the more sturdy and elegant the frame I'd rather keep it in. And for these special memories and people, I keep them in custom silver frames made by a company known as The 925. Styles range from Victorian looks to contemporary ones. You'll definitely find a style that would fit any room. May the room be your office, your den or your master bedroom, you can find designs to match.

Of Selfies, Smartphones, Sterling Silver Frames

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:00 AM in The 925 (32)

In our age of selfies and smartphone photography, the traditional practice of keeping a printed album or framing a picture is fast vanishing. The irony is, we have more people taking pictures today than ever, and yet, we have less of them keeping precious memories in printed form. Despite this trend, some people are finding it an art form, even a hobby, to revive the age-old practice of keeping printed pictures. A few online album printers have even targeted this segment, offering to create artistic printed albums based on your Instagram or Tumblr photos. If you're planning to restart your own printed photos, then The 925 Sterling Silver Picture Frames are a perfect complement to your new-found passion. Its elegant lines and unblemished silver finish will give justice to your precious moments.

A Window to Your Past

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:15:55 AM in The 925 (32)

Many customers looking for The 925 Inc. sterling silver picture frame have their favorite item. Ours is the Windsor frame, a masterpiece of sterling silver etched with intricate climbing vine of flowers around the frame. It evokes an aged garden, frozen in time as photos would in essence. The wood etches do appear like wood if not for their silver texture. The Roman vase adds melancholy to the whole theme. The frame itself is a window to a past, as if you are peaking at a secret garden. The whole idea of a picture frame is to capture a memory, and The 925 Windsor piece does the job well. Nonetheless, while the picture frame is impressive in itself, the universal silver palette gives it a singular tone that won’t overwhelm the picture itself.

Lost in lust

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in The 925 (32)

Imagine dining in eighteenth-century England with the queen. Your eyes are mesmerized, not by the sumptuous dish served before you, or the royalty at the far end of the table. It is the gleaming silver cutlery in your hands that catches your attention. It’s a The 925, you know. At first grasp you feel the firmness of silver mixed with the right amount of another metal to create that strength. The spoon’s curvature is passionately inviting; you can see your eyes in the reflection glowing with lust. The fork is equally alluring, and without noticing it, your hand is already caressing it up and down. The knife looks sharp, yet it teases  you to touch it. Lost in your ecstatic self, suddenly you snap out of your fantasy. Everyone is looking at you. That can very well be The 925 experience.

The Right mix

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in The 925 (32)

The 925 is all what sterling silver is about not only in name but at its core. It is durable. It is long-lasting and its shine endures tarnishing over time. It is flexible enough to create intricate designs for rings, pendants, and necklaces, among others. Now a little background about the number… in jewelry parlance, the number 925 in sterling silver means that the silver jewelry is mixed with another metal. The ratio is 92.5% or .925 silver and 7.5% other metal, usually copper. The other metal makes the silver more durable, stronger and last longer than pure silver. But the silver component should be precisely at 92.5% to achieve the best sterling silver. With a brand like The 925, you know your sterling silver has the right mix.

That is What’s in the Name

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:25 AM in The 925 (32)


The 925 brand name is derived from 92.5 which is the standard symbol for sterling silver. An alloy with 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals is called sterling silver, which is the ideal composition of durable, malleable and elegant-looking silver perfect for jewelry and gift items.  Jack Rabinovich, 3rd generation silversmith and founder of The 925 silver and pewter, named the brand as such because that is everything that the brand stands for – sterling quality in every piece. The 925 specializes in tarnish-free silver frames that are guaranteed to uphold memories from one generation to the next, in designs that stay elegant and intimate through the passing of years. The most popular among those timeless styles have been drawn up by Mr. Rabinovich, himself.
