What is Argentium Silver?
Argentium Silver is superior and performance better than Sterling Silver in many ways which make it attractive to making jewelry.
It is purer silver at 960% while Sterling silver is 925%.
It is tarnish-resistant, has an attractive whiter color, and is antibacterial and hypoallergenic. Argentium is more expensive than sterling silver. The raw materials used to make this unique alloy including Germanium are more expensive than Sterling.
Argentium Silver can be recycled.
Argentium is now extensively used by artists and large volume jewelry manufactures.
What is Titanium?
The allure of Titanium for making jewelry is in the colorations, brilliant and subtle when it is anodized. The range variation is from steel blue, brilliant blue, purple, magenta, reds, oranges, and yellow gold tones. it is possible to create the finest nuances and flowing transitions. it is an industrial metal and is used in building air and space crafts. it is nonreactive and is nonallergenic and is used as surgical implants.
Titanium offers several challenges in making jewelry. It is a hard metal, harder than steel, which means that designs are often strict in form. it does not lend itself to soldering as do precious metals.
The German jewelers Reiner Brandtner and Hans-Georg Pesch caused a sensation in the early 80s by exhibiting their experimental jewelry and sculptural objects as do precious metals.
The late Enid Kaplan, working in New York, explored and produced attractive jewelry in Titanium, with some unusual effects. I admire her work.
The metal Titanium is named after the oldest deity of the Greeks but was not discovered until relatively recently. Perhaps the gods wished to keep the metal for themselves, for its unique characteristics. it is a fact that it is the 10th most abundant element on earth.
