Tempi has searched far and wide for a suitable sealant so you would NOT need to POLISH any designs. Our newest find is called " DIAMOND ". It promises not to chip, peel, crack or scratch! There is a 7 day cure, but an initial set allows handling carefully. Part of the 7 days can be transit time. The test pieces Tempi has done have held up well. These are the photos attached. This product is great for our buckles AND the Rose Bronze in any form. You can select the sealant fo your purchase based on it's size. Let us know what your think! The Foal Pendant and the Foal Charm show the difference. Each is made in our Rose Bronze metal. The Pendant had sealant applied once it was completely polished. The Charm had no treatment. Now, after 60 days the sealer has done it's job, the othe charm needs polishing.
