Silver is one of the whitest metals. In it's pure form it is known as Fine Silver. It has been valued for centuries for its malleability, beauty and functionality. One of the most popular and durable forms of Silver is known as Sterling Silver.
Sterling silver is a copper-silver alloy and is somewhat softer than most gold alloys. Sterling Silver is comprised of 92.5% Fine Silver and 7.5% Alloy (mostly Copper). Perhaps this metal's most remarkable attribute is the way it ages. Silver patinas (tarnishes) so beautifully that designers often exaggerate that quality, incorporating recesses protected from the natural polishing of everyday wear, and even pre-oxidizing the surface. We call this silver look, "Aged" Sterling Silver.
With advances in metallurgy, we now offer "tarnish resistant" Sterling Silver alloy blends. These blends are commonly called Deox-Sterling Sliver. Some of these include Ultra Sterling, Argentium Sterling™, and Super Sterling.
Based on your needs, we will pick the right Sterling Silver alloy blend for you!
