Argentium Sterling Silver Resources

Looking to brighten up your silversmithing? Discover how this new alloy can prevent firescale or firestain, resist tarnish, and more!

A bit of history: First developed to prevent firestain, Middlesex University’s Master Silversmith, Peter Johns, added germanium to traditional sterling silver with wonderful results. Not only did the new alloy prevent firestain, but it was also tarnish resistant, readily fused, and now had heat-hardening properties as well as a brighter and whiter shine!

So what exactly is Argentium sterling silver? Traditional sterling silver is composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. Argentium replaces some of that copper with germanium to form a new alloy with highly desirable silversmithing qualities and benefits.

Introduce this wonderful alloy into your jewelry making as you explore the many videos, DVDs, and  projects, along with print and digital magazine issues that all shine with Argentium!
