Christofle sterling silver cutlery – A lifelong companion

What makes sterling silver so special? Sterling silver is a silver alloy with a high percentage of fine silver. Unlike 999 fine silver, it is hard enough to be made into objects for everyday use. 92.5% fine silver, 7.5% copper – a simple combination that maintains the value and beauty of pure silver without compromising on usability. That is why many consider a 925 sterling silver cutlery set to be a worthwhile investment with a stable material value.

Immaculately polished surfaces shine with a warm white luster; pleasantly balanced cutlery pieces feel smooth and soft against hand, mouth and lips. Solid sterling silver instantly takes on the temperatures of food, enhancing the pleasure of eating. Over the years, a graceful patina forms, giving your silver flatware its own personality.

The Christofle hallmarks for sterling silver

The best quality must be guaranteed. Goldsmiths and silversmiths mark their work with hallmarks that reveal an object's origin and fineness. Many countries with a long silver tradition have developed their own systems for marking gold and silver that are still in use today. Sterling silver cutlery from France bears at least two hallmarks, an individual maker's mark and a state silver hallmark.

Christofle's maker's mark has undergone a long evolution. The current maker's mark for Christofle sterling silver is a bee under three stars flanked by the initials "OC" for "Orfèvrerie Christofle" and framed in a diamond shape. Next to it, you may find the word "Christofle" in clear letters.

The French silver hallmark for 925 sterling silver is the head of Minerva inside a square with cut corners. Close to it, you may find the word "Sterling" in clear letters and the indication of fineness 925 inside a rectangle.

Christofle places the minute silver hallmarks differently depending on the cutlery piece:

  • Fork: On the inside above the neck
  • Spoon: On the back of the bowl
  • Knife: On the balance between the handle and the blade with additional lettering on
  • the stainless steel blade
