Argentium Silver was invented by Master Silversmith, Peter Johns at Middlesex University, London. His initial research concentrated on eliminating firestain in traditional Sterling silver, using the element Germanium. Germanium was also found to add further benefits, including tarnish resistance and heat-hardening properties.

Argentium’s unique formulation enhances the appearance of the silver, giving an incredible natural brightness and lustrous beauty that outshines white gold, platinum, palladium, rhodium and traditional Sterling silver.

Why are hardness and durability important?
It is beneficial for silver to be soft and malleable where forming and shaping processes are required during the production of jewellery and silverware however, it is important that finished articles are hard and durable so that they are not vulnerable to damage.

Will Argentium Silver work harden?
Yes, while Argentium has excellent formability in its softened state, the silver will work harden to achieve superior hardness and durability.

Can Argentium Silver be heat hardened?
Yes, Argentium’s unique formulation means that the silver can be effectively hardened by a simple, low temperature heat treatment. Unlike traditional Sterling and Britannia silver, even soldered Argentium Silver items can be heat hardened.

What does this mean for the customer?
Finished jewellery and silverware made in Argentium are harder, stronger and more durable than traditional Sterling and Britannia silver. This means that Argentium Silver articles are more resistant to damage from scratches, denting and deformation - this is particularly beneficial for jewellery items that are regularly worn.

What are the benefits of firestain free Argentium Silver?

  • Argentium does not require acid and abrasive processes to remove firestain or plating processes to hide firestain.
  • Manufacturing time, labour and costs are saved.
  • Environmental and cost benefits from not having to dispose of toxic chemicals required to remove/hide firestain.
  • Workplace benefits from not having to use firestain removal and plating processes.

Argentium - Hypoallergenic and Nickel Free
Traditional Sterling silver has long been associated with discolouration where skin and jewellery are in contact, which in certain cases has resulted in the wearer suffering an adverse reaction. There has also been increasing awareness in recent years about the anti-allergy benefits of nickel free silver.

  • Argentium Silver is hypoallergenic and is well-suited for those who are unable to wear traditional Sterling silver jewellery. Argentium also has antibacterial properties.
  • Argentium Silver alloys do not contain nickel.
