Invited as an honorary member of the Argentium® Silver Guild in England, her Celestial earrings are displayed in their website's Gallery, which spotlights several Argentium® artists from around the world. https://www.argentiumguild.com A licensed user of the brand and trademarks, Jan hand stamps the Argentium® silver hallmark, a flying unicorn, on each of her designs.
The discovery of Argentium® silver belongs to Master Silversmith, Peter Johns, of England's Middlesex University in London, who invented this highly tarnish-resistant sterling when a local hospital board asked if he could create a tarnish-resistant sterling to be used in making their surgical instruments.
Argentium® silver is composed primarily of fine silver, with less copper than found in traditional sterling, and germanium, a white, crystalline element that inhibits tarnish. Argentium® is a purer, whiter, more durable sterling, and a few, quick wipes of a polishing cloth will clean and shine your jewelry almost instantly. This sterling also can be washed with warm water and a mild soap, or, if you're out and about, it can be cleaned with a hand-sanitizer, such as Purell®.
In sparkling silver, draped with 14k gold, or coupled with luminous pearls, Jan Peyser Jewelry™ has received recognition at the 2016 Academy Awards in Hollywood, in Gift Shop Magazine's In Trend section for biomorphic design, and her jewelry has been given Merit Awards and Awards of Excellence at national art shows. Currently, she is honored to be chosen to donate some of her jewelry to the 15th Annual Gala del Sol for Camp del Corazon, which will be held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on April 14, 2018.
Jan hopes Argentium® Silver - The Finest Silver will brighten your day each time you wear Jan Peyser Jewelry™.
