I have been advised by folks at Argentium Silver Co. that use of the
word “Argentium” on its own may lead to the word becoming a generic
term used to describe tarnish resistant, firescale-free silver
In order to comply with the trademarks laws, please note that the
proper way this alloy should be referred to is either “Argentium[tm]
Sterling Silver” or “Argentium Sterling”.
Argentium Silver Co. are very excited about the activity on Orchid
relating to “Argentium Sterling Silver” and do not wish to offend
anybody by correcting their naming of the alloy, however they need
to protect their trademark rights.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
