Made with a touch of germanium, Argentium® Silver presents a bright white color that is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling, yet is highly resistant to firescale and extremely slow to tarnish under most conditions. With 93.5% pure silver, Argentium meets the legal standard to be quality-marked as sterling silver.
16 gauge is a good size for more delicate Ring Bands, and filigree neck bands. It will hold it's shape well, and can be strengthened even more by hammering and working the metal.
Nothing has the true shine of sterling silver more than SOLID Sterling Silver!
