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. Though the Silver chain can be dipped separated ;-)
