The cabochon in this Coprolite Sterling Silver Pendant is an elongated oval shape. To create our design, we etched it into 18 gauge .935 Argentium Sterling Silver. Next, we set the Coprolite cabochon in a 28 gauge .935 Argentium sterling silver bezel. Then we enhanced the etched area with hand stippling. The next step was to add something personal for the wearer. So, we have added a hand scribed unique design on the back of the pendant. Finally, we polish the pendant twice. First, we use Zam polishing compound. Second, we use Rouge polishing compound. The Coprolite Sterling Silver Pendant measures 2″ x 3/4″. Our .935 Argentium Sterling Silver chains are sold separately.

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.
