Solid Jeweler's Brass Cable Chains
Solid Jeweler's Brass, cable chain necklace. 2.5 mm.
Jeweler’s Brass is a great color match to 14K yellow gold. It is a beautiful color with a nice weight to it.
Jeweler’s Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and it will naturally tarnish when exposed to oxygen, like all copper based metals. Some people like the patina of tarnished Jeweler’s Brass and enjoy watching their piece slowly darken in color over time.
The tarnish is actually a protective coating for the brass, but if you prefer the shine of new, it is easy to do by tumbling or using some common household products if you don’t have a tumbler.
