Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. The proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of brasses with varying properties. For jewelry, the most commonly used percentages of copper and zinc is 67% and 33%. This mixture helps the brass become stronger and more durable than copper alone, which allows for superb electroplating quality, and thus, it is the perfect combination for fashion jewelry.
Precious stones are the most beautiful and valuable of all the gemstones. Their colors are vibrant, translucent and brilliant. These natural crystals are also durable, but at the same time rare, and they can be used to create both jewelry and accessories.
