There are many similarities between sterling silver, Argentium® and silver filled wire. Silver filled wire can be use just like sterling silver, and is even non-allergenic like sterling silver. If you're typically allergic to plated jewelry then silver filled wire is ideal for you. Silver filled wire is comparable to Argentium® as they have many of the same qualities. All of the things you love about sterling silver, gold filled and Argentium®, you'll love about silver filled wire, especially the cost!
Most silver filled wire has only 5% silver around the red brass alloy core, but ours is 10% silver. When you cut silver filled wire you will be able to see the red brass alloy core, but this will add character and dimension to your wire jewelry projects.
