Fine pewter jewelry is relatively carefree to maintain as it does not easily rust, corrode, or tarnish. World-wide, 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.
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, virtually all pewter jewelry created in the U.S.A is now lead-free. Fine pewter jewelry is also nickel free, making it an ideal choice for those who suffer from an allergic reaction or adverse skin sensitivity when exposed to nickel.
Why do jewelers use fine pewter?
Fine pewter is frequently used in jewelry designs as an affordable, 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.
How should I clean fine pewter jewelry?
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.

Thank you so much for your cleaning tips. As I went further and looked at your bracelets, my hunch was confirmed. You are a Christian company. I love your work. I would like to send a pic of what I am trying to clean, I am going to try the paste now. My bracelet has a lot of groves. I believe it is Celtic.
