Blanch = pale or white. As a verb, if someone blanches, they become afraid and pale. Argent = silvery. This is an old term and many native speakers don't even know its meaning any more. Silvery = shiny, with the color of silver. If something was blanched, it would not be described as either argent or silvery.

A native speaker wouldn't use any of those three words very often. Blanch is sometimes used with cooking. Silvery would only be used to describe the color of something. And argent never occurs in daily conversations.
