Was: Tarnish resistant sterling
I have been looking for tarnish resistant sterling silver alloys. I have gotten many good reccomendations, especially for palladium sterling silver. I am interested in using fine silver for some designs (I know it’s very soft) my question is, can I solder it? I will fuse some joints but if I am adding an accent such, as a tube setting, that must be soldered. However I want to still mark it as .999. Maybe if I fuse as many joints as possible and then solder using sterling silver which melts at 60 degrees lower than fine silver? Or would I still no be able to mark it as fine silver?
