I’m excited to use argentium sterling silver in my designs because argentium sterling is brighter, it’s non-tarnish and it’s made from recycled silver making it eco-friendly. Here are some further facts about argentium sterling silver.
Why is Argentium silver brighter and whiter than other precious metals?
Argentium’s unique formulation enhances the appearance of the silver, giving an incredible natural brightness and lustrous beauty that outshines white gold, platinum and even traditional sterling silver.
Argentium – responsible silver
Why is there a growing demand for responsible silver?
There is an increasing awareness and demand for the preservation of our natural environment – to conserve energy and natural resources and to reduce waste and pollution. Some practices in the silver industry use toxic chemicals and hazardous procedures for removing firestain – a penetrating, dark coloured oxide that forms when sterling silver is heated during manufacturing processes. Such practices are undesirable in the workplace and the disposal of toxic waste products also raises environmental concerns. Over the last few years, there has been an increasing awareness about the anti-allergy benefits of nickel-free silver.
What makes Argentium silver responsible?
Argentium guarantees traceability of its raw silver. It is certified that Argentium is produced using only recycled silver. Argentium alloys do not contain nickel.
