What is the difference between Argentium silver and sterling silver?
Sterling silver is a popular alloy in jewellery making, which comprises of a mixture of 92.5% pure silver with 7.5% made up of other alloys, usually copper.
Argentium however, contains a greater amount of pure silver depending on the grade (935 which contains 93.5% pure silver), with the remainder being made up of other alloys, such as a small amount of germanium.
This unique addition of germanium gives Argentium silver beneficial attributes such as fire stain resistance, improved durability and also a higher melting point, which translates to a higher annealing temperature and flow point.
Additionally, Argentium silver can be fused and welded much easier than sterling silver which means it is often favoured by metalsmiths, and it is also 7 times more tarnish resistant that sterling silver.
