Developed in the early 1990's by the Mitsubishi Company in Japan, PMC was introduced in the United
States in 1995. Tiny micron sized particles of precious metal, silver and gold, are mixed with an organic binder and water. During the firing process the binder burns away, and the tiny metal particles bond
and fuse together. The end result is an item made of pure precious metal.
The Silver PMC is Fine Silver (.999 pure silver), the Gold is 24 Karat. Items made from PMC are stronger than if they had been made
of conventional metal of the same purity, and as much as 20% lighter in weight.
PMC is easy to care for. Since there are no other metals mixed with the gold or silver, it does not tarnish or get dirty as readily
as other forms of silver. Several cleaning methods to use are: Rub with a polishing cloth, or clean with a toothbrush and warm, soapy water (or toothpaste). A jewelry cleaner may be used with
caution. Some stones and finishes could be damaged. (Thoroughly rinse off the residue).
