Argentium Silver is like Sterling silver in that it is a silver alloy, that is, silver combined with other materials. In Argentium there is 93.5% silver and the rest is made up of Copper and Germanium. There is a lower copper content in Argentium than in Sterling Silver and therefore does not present the same tarnish issues. It also has a slightly brighter, whiter look. Argentium Silver is also hypoallergenic and is said to be a better option for those for whom Sterling Silver causes sensitivity issues.
