Caring For Your Pewter Jewelry

Pewter jewelry has a long and noble history, and became popular among the wealthy during the Middle Ages. Pewter is a soft metal and can bend easily. Adjust your pewter jewelry gently to prevent shape loss.

Pewter jewelry is extremely versatile. It can be polished and shiny, or brushed and antique-looking. However, this soft metal is susceptible to corrosion, so be sure to keep your pewter jewelry away from corrosive chemicals like household cleaners and nail polish remover.

To keep the dark areas on your hand stamped jewelry, be sure to take off any pewter pieces before swimming, showering, washing dishes, and the like. As with most metals, pewter does not like to get wet!

Our handmade jewelry store includes a polishing pad with all orders that you can use daily to keep your pewter looking picture-perfect!
