To create these Garnet Silver Earrings, we etched the flower shape into .935 Argentium Sterling Silver. Next, we set the 5mm Red Rhodolite Garnets in .935 Argentium Silver Bezels. Then we attached faceted Black Agate Briolettes using screw eyes. Finally, we enhanced the Garnet Silver Earrings with hand stippling. These earrings measure 1-3/4″ x 1/2″. The earwires, pegs and jump rings are 14K Yellow Gold-Filled.
These lovely ladies would make a nice addition to your jewelry collection. The colors will complement many Items of your clothing. Wear these earrings for casual events or to go out for a special dinner.
An English professor of silversmithing invented Argentium sterling silver in 1996. Traditional sterling silver has a pure silver content of 92.5%. In contrast, Argentium has a pure silver content of 93.5%. A small amount of the element germanium replaces some of the copper. As a result, this new sterling silver is highly tarnish resistant, more workable and harder than traditional sterling silver. Many people who are allergic to traditional sterling silver can wear Argentium sterling silver without a problem.
