Argentium sterling silver and carnelian earrings

Product Description

These earrings use carnelian rounds, carefully wrapped in argentium sterling silver wire. These earrings are strung from handmade argentium sterling silver ear wires, and measure 3.5 cm (1 3/8 inch) long from the top of the earwire.

Argentium sterling silver is a modern sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium. As it retains the 92.5% silver content of the traditional alloy, it is still referred to as sterling silver. Due to the modified alloy, it tarnishes much slower than traditional sterling silver.
