In our last blog post we discussed Sterling Silver and how fantastic it is for your hand stamped jewellery. We hear alot 'does it tarnish' and we are very honest with our reply...yes. We do offer 2 alternatives...9ct Gold and Argentium Silver.
So what is Argentium Silver?
Argentium Silver is PURER than sterling silver (93.5% vs 92.5%), BRIGHTER than sterling silver, platinum and white gold, HIGHLY TARNISH RESISTANT meaning you keep the lustre and shine for longer and is as simple as wiping with a soft cloth to clean,HYPOALLERGENIC for those who can't wear sterling silver, ECO FRIENDLY as Argentium Silver is made from only recycled materials,AUSTRALIAN MADE and carries a GLOBAL RECOGNITION OF QUALITY by use of the unicorn logo that is set on every piece of Argentium Silver.
There are many benefits to Argentium Silver. This precious metal does cost slightly more than Sterling Silver but as popularity grows we hope the cost will come down. We offer Argentium Silver for your hand stamled jewellery designs on a custom order basis but over the near 2 years we have been working with it we are seeing a rise in its popularity.
