Our brass earrings are a lovely alternative to silver and the mix of 70% pure copper with 30% pure zinc gives them a deep golden colour, sometimes described as ‘fake gold’. We supply them hung on gold-plated hook wires so they are suitable for those with sensitive ears.
Each earring is moulded and finished by hand before setting the stone and a final polish. Because copper and zinc oxidise in the atmosphere, the brass will darken over time. The earrings can easily be polished to bring back their golden lustre, or left to age naturally for an antique look.
