About Argentium Sterling Silver:
Argentium Sterling Silver Jewelry is highly tarnish resistant. Since it is made to a higher standard than traditional sterling silver, Argentium Sterling Silver is guaranteed to be not less than 92.5% pure.
The tarnish resistance is obtained through the alloying of Germanium with the silver. The result is a highly tarnish resistant material that does not require harsh chemicals to clean. If it needs cleaning it can be wiped with a soft cloth to restore the original sparkling white color. Do not use a cloth that has tarnish from conventional sterling silver as the tarnish might contaminate the Argentium Silver. It can also be washed with soap and water.
