  • Sterling Silver sold at Aladins Silver is nickel free and hypoallergenic for those with sensitive skin.
  • The absence of nickel in the silver stops the allergenic skin reaction.
  • The green staining effect on skin is due to tarnishing on the surface of lower purity silver items. The purer the silver the less tarnish there can be. Sterling 925 Silver does not produce this tarnish.

  • A History of Pewter.

    Pewter was introduced into Britain around the 2nd century A.D. by the Romans. The 13th century saw significant production as pewter was being used for items such as chalices, pilgrim badges and other ecclesiastical items. The fourteenth century saw pewter manufacturing grow rapidly, almost every market town of any size would have a pewterer in its craft guild making items of pewter; plates, bowls, candlesticks, ornaments, decorative ware and buttons. In 1474 the London Pewterers 'purchased' from King Edward IV a royal charter for the legal control of pewter manufacture - the birth of the Worshipful Company of Pewterers, which is still going strong to this day.

    Early pewter contained lead which gave the metal the dark appearance associated with old pieces. Today's lead free pewter is capable of being brightly polished which gives it its long lasting appeal.
