Argentium is an alloy that is a brighter-white sterling silver that resist tarnishing and keeps on shining. Made with a touch of germanium, Argentium® Silver presents a bright white color that is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling, yet is extremely slow to tarnish under most conditions.
Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages in a cool, dry place. Your piece comes with a tarnish-resistant bag that absorbs harmful chemicals.
