Frequently Asked Questions about Mountain Metalcraft jewelry, materials, ordering, and more.
Is this nickel free jewelry?
- Yes! All Mountain Metalcraft jewelry is nickel free, unless otherwise specified. (White gold does contain nickel.)
Will my jewelry tarnish?
- Mountain Metalcraft uses Argentium Sterling, which is tarnish resistant.
Do you offer discounted sets for bridesmaids?
- Yes! Contact us for pricing.
Will this ring turn my finger green?
- Typically, a green finger is the result of the skin's reaction to copper. With cheap, plated metals, the plating can wear off, exposing base metal with a high copper content. We DO NOT use plated metals! Additionally, the Argentium sterling we use contains even less copper than traditional sterling, and is considered hypo-allergenic.
What is the difference between Argentium Sterling and traditional .925 Sterling?
- Argentium Sterling Silver is a high quality silver alloy, which was developed in the 90s, and is gaining popularity. Traditional sterling contains 92.5% fine silver (hence the .925), with the remaining 7.5% comprised of copper. Argentium sterling contains more fine silver (93.5%), and replaces some of the remaining copper with Germanium, making Argentium sterling highly tarnish resistant, brighter, and more hypo-allergenic than traditional sterling.
