Argentium sterling silver silverware in the context of the Silver Bullion website refers to silverware or tableware made of argentium sterling silver. Argentium sterling silver, the brainchild of researcher Peter Johns at the School of Art & Design, Middlesex University, is a modern sterling silver alloy patented and trademarked by the “Argentium Silver Company.” Argentium sterling silver differs from traditional sterling silver in the sense that some of the copper in the traditional alloy gets replaced with metalloid germanium. It’s however still referred to as sterling silver. The reason for this is because the silver content in argentium sterling silver remains at 92.5%.
