14kt Gold Filled is brass with 1/20th by weight of 14kt solid gold material layered & chemically bonded to the surface of the brass "core" material. This is a much thicker layer of gold than any plated material, and has a higher gold content than 10 or 12kt Gold - Filled material. It is a lifetime product for most customers.

Argentium Sterling (AS) wire is the most tarnish resistant silver available today. The argentium sterling alloy is less susceptible to tarnishing than sterling silver because the germanium element forms a germanium oxide skin on the metal's surface, acting as a barrier to oxidization. Argentium Silver is comprised of 92.5 percent pure silver, 1 to 2 percent germanium, and about 6 percent copper. Half Hard This wire is available in a wide range of sizes, has some stiffness to it and is likewise very popular with our wire wrappers. The price difference between sterling silver wire and Argentium is not bad at all, considering all the time Argentium Sterling will save you in not having to clean your wire! An occasional rinse or wipe with a soft cotton cloth with keep the Argentium Sterling wire in pristine condition.

Be sure to specify your preference of variety (color) and size range. We normally carry all of the above sizes, the price varies and is sold by the foot of each style. Please Note: Sterling Silver, Argentium Sterling or 14K G.F.wire is non-returnable.
