Silver Solder Closest in Color to Copper

Home > Education > Metalworking FAQs > Brazing and Soldering FAQs > Silver Solder Closest in Color to Copper

I am making some copper chargers for table use (no food contact).  I want to solder some decoration and would like to know what kind of silver solder like material will be closest in color to the copper?  I want the joint to be as inconspicuous as possible.

The Tin Man Respondeth:

Copper may be joined with Harris 15, a silver braze used with any silverbearing hard soldering flux. The color as buffed bright should match very well, although as tarnished it will show lighter than the copper.
