This Argentium Cross is hand made in our studios. The 14ga Argentium silver is hand sawed. The nine 8mm round white freshwater cabochons are bezel set by first fusing the bezels to the surface of the cross. The we carefully texture the surface of the cross and polish the cross in a series of 6 different steps. Once the cross is polished we carefully hand set each pearl cabochon into its bezel.
Argentium is one of our favorite silver metals. Argentium contains more pure silver (93.5%) than traditional sterling silver which has (92.5%) pure silver. Therefore it is a higher karat silver. It is naturally brighter and whiter in color than any other precious metal. In low sodium atmospheres Argentium is tarnish resistant. Argentium is 100% nickel free so it’s hypoallergenic and can be worn by many people who can’t wear traditional sterling silver due to allergies. Argentium is also 100% recycled silver.
