Frequently Asked Questions:
Q) Does Pewter Tarnish? A) Yes, but not nearly as easily as silver. Modern Pewter is much more resilient against environmental influences and so tarnishes at a much slower rate.
Q) Does Pewter contain Nickel? A) Our Pewter does not contain Nickel (Also known as Nickle, Nickel-Silver or German Silver)
The “Dangerous Substances and Preparations (Nickel) (Safety) Regulations 2000″ (UK) and EU Directive “94/27/EC” prohibits the use of Nickel in items of jewellery worn next to the skin.
