Renaissance wax was first developed in the early 1950s in the British Museum research laboratories, specifically for the conservation and protection of exhibits where traditional waxes contained acids which could spoil antique furniture and works of art. It has gone on to become one of the most popular conservation wax polishes and is widely used in museums, art galleries and stately homes. It has a micro crystalline structure much finer than totally natural waxes, a quality that is highly efficient for moisture resistance. When applied thinly and rubbed out to a full lustre, the wax film is glass clear, and it remains clear, with no discolouration of the wax or the underlying surface. Renaissance wax is PH neutral and will not even damage sensitive materials. 

In the jewellery trade, it has been found to provide a great way of protecting patinas that have been created using liver of sulphur and protects against tarnishing and oxidisation. It can even be used to protect tools from rusting and on paper and photographs as it will not stain or darken the paper. 

As well as metals, it can be used for finishing polymer clay, wood and ceramics and unlike lacquers, it leaves behind an almost invisible protective layer rather than a shiny coating so it won’t affect the look of your jewellery.
