    Sorry Henning but this is a U.K. forum and I’m not sure if anyone will be able to translate your post

    Argentium is the registered trade name for a particular low tarnish alloy. In the UK it is hallmarked as silver925.
    Once altered as you describe it is no longer Argentium, but can still be hallmarked as 925. Dennis.

    So Argentium is hallmarked 925 not 935 in the UK?

    Yes, yes, yes. I had to add the other 2 yeses as one yes was too short for the forum ;-)

    Argentium 935 is marked 925 (sterling). The 960 version, which isn't as readily available, can have the Britannia (958) mark applied. I'm not sure if anywhere is now stamping the 935 mark - though it was used in Europe and Scandinavia before the 1970s.

    Australia still stamps 935, although we don't have "hallmarking companies" it is completed by the Jeweller
