About Argentium Silver
Argentium is a new generation of silver alloys that has a higher purity rating than your standard Sterling Silver - Sterling Silver is .925 while Argentium is .935! It was developed specifically to combat the tarnish that occurs as silver oxidizes when it comes into contact with air – and we love that. Say goodbye to your tarnishing silver and hello Argentium!
Aluminum is a lightweight metal that will not tarnish or rust. It is a good hypoallergenic choice, unless you have a fairly rare type of metal allergy (however you should always consult with your doctor if you have a metal allergy before trying new metals). It does not contain Nickel and has a close resemblance to silver!
About Stainless Steel
As well as being strong and resilient, stainless steel has an attractive muted grey color that is finished in shiny or matte. With its resistance to rust, oxidation and discoloration, this corrosion-resistant alloy is ideal for long-lasting jewelry designs. It's also unplated and will not fade or chip over time - it will endure your daily wear. This metal is the best suggestion for anyone living in high-humidity location (think Toronto summers), as the metal will keep from rusting much longer than other metals.
