Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc; the proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of tones from dull, muted gold to bright and shiny gold. Used for everything from jewelry to home decor. It doesn't tarnish and some formulations are completely corrosion resistant. Thin layers of brass can be electroplated over other metals such as pewter.
Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper and other metals. It has a low melting point and is very easy to cast in molds. It has been used since ancient times for everything from jewelry to table wear and was once called the "poor mans silver". Generally pewter has a grayish/silver semi-dull finish, though this varies depending on the metals combined with the tin and can be colored black or other shades or plated with gold or silver. All our pewter pieces are lead and nickel free. Pewter is generally hypo-allergenic and will not tarnish or react in most conditions. Note it can break or crack if flexed multiple times and rings cannot be re-sized, though interior ring springs or other adjusters might be used.
