Paua Jewellery Care
Paua shell is high quality nacre, the same material as pearls. DO NOT use chemical cleaning dips, as these can eat into the natural shell. Gentel polishing with silver polish or a silver polishing cloth will restore the lustre and shine.
Sterling Silver Safe & Healthy
Sterling Silver (.925) is the silver standard used by quality silversmiths around the world. Sterling silver is the safe and healthy option.
Rei Jewellery Ltd. only uses solid sterling silver, including our chains, because our jewellery is designed to be worn and enjoyed for many years.
