CARING FOR PEWTER:
Pewter has a darker finish. Our rings are made from oxidized pewter. They look like antiques, and are darker in color. Oxidized pewter does not need to be polished. You only need to wash it. Remember, oxidized pewter does not benefit from polishing, and polishing could actually be damaging.You should only wash this type of pewter with mild soapy water and then dry it.
CARING FOR STERLING SILVER
Clean your sterling silver jewelry with a polishing cloth or a clean flannel cloth and gently rub off any excess makeup. Remember, silver is a very soft metal and you can scratch it if you aren’t careful so don’t rub it too hard. Never use anything but a clean flannel cloth ór a very soft bristle brush, like a baby’s toothbrush.
Paper, polyester, and coarse fabrics often contain wood fibers or synthetics that can cause tiny scratches in the surface of your fine sterling silver jewelry. Dirt left over from previous cleanings can scratch the surface as well.
Stay away from water and detergents!
