Pewter is a metal alloy that is believed to have first been used in the Near East at the start of the Bronze Age and has been used for thousands of years since.
At some points in history, pewter has been labelled 'the poor man’s silver', but this is an unfair description of this useful alloy. Today, lead and nickel free pewter is the fourth-most–common metal used worldwide in jewellery production, benefitting from its resistance to tarnishing and its pliability, making it possible to create elegant and complex designs.
