AFAIK there is no place that has Buffet R13 keys made from sterling silver. I also don't think Buffet makes or has made R13 keys from sterling silver, maybe with the exception of a few special orders etc. (just a guess i.e. it is possible, but who knows). The places which sell Buffet R13 keys probably get them from Buffet, so they have what Buffet makes.

I can think of two ways to get R13 keys in sterling silver.

One is to special order a clarinet like that from Buffet. I don't know if it would be possible to order just a set of keys, so it might be necessary to buy a clarinet instead, but you never know. Maybe someone at Buffet will be interested in your unique case and want to make these keys, or it might be a huge hassle to change form their normal parts and impossible.

The other is to have some type of machine shop, a clarinet maker, etc. to make a set of keys from sterling silver, copied from your current clarinet and made to fit.

I guess the reason you don't want gold or platinum plating, which I guess is possible to do, is because it can wear?
