Better moldability (up to 70%),
    good extensibility / tensile strength

White color
Does not trigger allergies

Argentium is a patented silver alloy invented in 1996 by the English silversmith
and Professor Peter Johns.

Argentium is environmentally friendly because no chemicals are needed to strip it.
It is made from recycled silver.

Argentium has different properties than conventional silver and requires a
different way of processing that you need to know and learn.
But the result is amazing.
