- - - About the sterling silver used in my jewelry - - -

I use Argentium Sterling Silver. It is a modern sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium, which significantly affects it’s tarnish resistance. So it stays shining bright longer! This sterling silver is great for sensitive skin, it holds it's form better and stays polished much longer. When you do need to polish it, it simply takes a quick rub from silver cloth to restore it to pristine condition (although, the more you wear silver, the more polished it stays!).
