|Pewter||Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper and other metals. It has a low melting point and is very easy to cast in molds. It has been used since ancient times for everything from jewelry to table wear and was once called the "poor mans silver". Generally pewter has a grayish/silver semi-dull finish, though this varies depending on the metals combined with the tin and can be colored black or other shades or plated with gold or silver. All our pewter pieces are lead and nickel free. Pewter is generally hypo-allergenic and will not tarnish or react in most conditions. Note it can break or crack if flexed multiple times and rings cannot be re-sized, though interior ring springs or other adjusters might be used.|
|Surgical Steel||Surgical steel or surgical stainless steel is a specific type of stainless steel, used in medical and jewelry applications, made out of several components: chromium, nickel (or titanium) and molybdenum. It is easy to clean and sterilize, strong, and corrosion-resistant. It is often used for pierced jewelry posts and wires as it does not cause allergic reactions other metals might in some individuals.|
|Care & Other Information|
|Polishing Your Jewelry||Pewter may dull or even tarnish over time depending on environmental factors and how often it is stored. It can be gently cleaned with a soft cloth or jewelry polishing cloth, but should NOT be cleaned with liquid or abrasive cleaners. Do not put in hot, salty water or dishwasher or submerge any pieces with an antique finish.|
|Warranty||All Alchemy Gothic pieces have a lifetime guarantee against defects and faulty workmanship. In the unlikely event that you should have any such problems, please return them to LABEShops for repair or replacement. With normal wear, your piece should last a lifetime, but do not excessively bend or flex pewter as it can break and such breakage is not covered under warranty.|
