Topics: Non-Tarnish Silver Wire

Q.
What is the best silver wire to use that will not tarnish over the years? I am going to be decorating some hair combs for a wedding.

We recommend Argentium® sterling silver wire for an application like this. Argentium is a type of sterling silver that contains a small amount of additional alloys, giving it dramatically better tarnish resistance over standard sterling silver. For greater tarnish resistance, store the combs in plastic top zip bags: and consider placing an anti-tarnish strip in each bag for added tarnish-resistant benefit.
