Contrary to popular belief, Charoite was not named for the Chara River. There seems to be some debate about this, but it is now generally agreed upon that Charoite was named for its magical appearance; The Russian word Chary means "charms" or “magic” and the site where it was first uncovered is about 70km away from the Chara River.

Why Argentium Sterling Silver?
Argentium sets new purity standards for silver. Argentium is always purer than traditional sterling silver.
Plating is prone to wear and tear and is commonly used on silver items to give the temporary illusion of purity. Argentium is the natural color of pure silver through and through.
Argentium silver is brighter than platinum, white gold and traditional sterling silver. It is the whitest of them all.
Longer lasting shine:
Argentium silver is low maintenance, easy to care for and simple to keep clean.
Argentium guarantees traceability of its raw silver. It is certified that Argentium is produced using only recycled silver.
