About Peruvian Opal
Peruvian Opal is the national stone of Peru. This stunning pink gemstone is relatively rare and can only be found in the Andes mountains. These stones are naturally pink and do not go through color treatment to enhance their color.
According to fables, Peruvian Opal is a calming stone that can pacify the mind.
About Argentium® Sterling Silver
Argentium® – The Finest Silver - is a purer version of Sterling Silver that is also highly tarnish resistant. Standard "Sterling Silver" is an alloy composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. This is why you may also see "925 Sterling Silver" for items that are Sterling Silver.
Argentium® is made with 93.5% silver and 6.5% other metals, including germanium and copper, which gives Argentium® additional beneficial properties for jewelry makers. For my jewelry, the biggest benefit of using Argentium® instead of regular Sterling Silver is that it is anti-tarnish. It is also not plated, it is 100% Argentium® Silver - so there is no worry about plating rubbing off. Argentium® jewelry is always hypoallergenic.
In addition to these benefits, Argentium® is responsibly manufactured, is ethically sourced, and is certified to be made with 100% recycled silver.
NOTE: Argentium® Sterling Silver should never be cleaned using silver "dip" cleaners. Please either wipe with a soft cloth or use only water and mild dish soap if you need to clean your Argentium® Sterling Silver jewelry.
