Since fine pewter jewelry does not easily rust, corrode, or tarnish, it is relatively care free to maintain. Pewter is the fourth most popular metal used in jewelry, ranking just behind gold, silver, and platinum. Before we get to our tips for cleaning and polishing your fine pewter jewelry, let's start with a few basics.
Why do jewelers use fine pewter?
Fine pewter is frequently used in jewelry designs as an affordable, relatively maintenance free, alternative to sterling silver. Pewter is a sought after material for jewelry because it can be polished to a lustrous shine, chemically darkened for an antique look, or “brushed” to leave a beautiful satin finish.
What is fine pewter?
Fine pewter is a tin based alloy consisting of at least 90% tin and 1-3% each of silver, copper, bismuth, and antimony. Because lead is known to have a harmful impact on the human body, almost all pewter jewelry created in the U.S.A is lead-free.
Fine pewter jewelry will last for generations if cared for properly. Read on for a few tips on how to clean, polish, and store your fine pewter jewelry.
