Brass has a similar appearance to gold and is an great alternative jewelry choice. However, brass jewelry does entail some extra care and responsibilities. Like silver, you can wet brass jewelry. Moisture can cause a brown patina to form which gives brass jewelry a unique look.
Even with stringent care, most brass jewelry will eventually show signs of tarnish over time. Even if you keep it dry, it can still absorb moisture from air and from your sweat. However, you can restore its original look by using a polish cloth or steel wool, which is available at any hardware store.

Much of the jewelry we have on MostOriginal.com has findings and accents in Brass. The term used for alloys of copper and zinc in a solid solution, typically it is more than 50% copper and from 5% to 20% zinc, in comparison to bronze which is principally an alloy of copper and tin. Despite this distinction, some types of brasses are called bronzes. Brass has a yellow color, somewhat similar to gold, because of this, and its relative resistance to tarnishing, it is often used as a decoration to handmade jewelry.
