About Jewelry Brass and Bronze

Both jewelry brass and bronze are copper alloy.  Jewelry brass, also known as red brass, is an alloy of copper and zinc, while bronze is copper and tin.

Color-wise, jewelry brass has a rich golden color, very similar to yellow gold, while bronze is paler in comparison, almost somewhat towards pink.  Both jewelry brass and bronze are a solid metal, so no worries of any plating coming off.
