i have been experimenting with argentium. My ears are sensitive to
metals. After wearing some posts make of argentium they felt a bit
itchy. Has there been any reports of people being allergic or
reacting unfavorably to argentium? I cannot wear base metals but
have no problem with the precious metals.
On the contrary, many people have reported that they’ve found
Argentium Silver (AS) to be largely non-reactive. For instance I’ve
got customers who have had me replace all of their sterling posts and
earwires with AS for that very reason: regular sterling gives them
trouble but AS does not.
On the other hand I can imagine that high karat golds and platinums
might be less reactive still.
Just a guess, but could it be your finishing process? Cleaners,
polishes, etc might cause reactions.
