Materials

 

 

BRASS
 

Looks like - gold. Brass has a yellowish, goldish color. It's a bit more yellow than 18k gold, but it will do nicely. With the polishing, it gets an incredible shine. Brass is beautiful, but like bronze, it is a bit sensitive to oxidation. It adds oxidation in little corners, making charms even more 3D and alive, but on flat surfaces, can - over time - add spots that you were not anticipating.

Price wise - budget friendly. Brass is, together with bronze, the most budget-friendly material we have.  

We recommend - brass for charms, and rings with lots of detail, and little smooth surfaces.

BRONZE
 

Looks like - copperish gold. Bronze has a copper look to it. It's a bit more red than gold or brass. With the polishing, it gets an incredible shine. Bronze is beautiful, but like brass, it is a bit sensitive to oxidation. It adds oxidation in little corners, making charms even more 3D and alive, but on flat surfaces, can - over time - add spots that you were not anticipating. 

Price wise - budget friendly. Bronze is, together with brass, the most budget-friendly material we have.  

We recommend - bronze only for charms. Bronze oxidates heavily in the beginning, and turns your fingers blue if used in a ring.

SILVER
 

Looks like - silver. It's as simple as that. Silver has a warm grey color and ages beautifully. Over time the color turns a little darker in the deeper corners, and gets even lighter and shinier on the top parts.

Price wise - high class. Silver is the more valuable material we use in our jewelry. Silver is precious, and has high durability, which is reflected in the price.

We recommend - silver for everything and anything. It is highly compatible for all types of jewelry.

GOLD PLATED
 

Looks like - gold. Gold plated means that the jewel is first casted in a different material, and then "dipped" in gold, leaving behind a layer of gold on top. Jenny plates over brass. This means that underneath the layer of gold, is the gold-colored brass. 

Price wise - classy. Gold is ofcourse the most expensive material in our collection. Since the amount of gold in plated jewelry is limited, the pieces remain affordable. All Jenny From The Block products can be ordered in solid gold as well. Just ask Jenny, she'll help you out.

We recommend - Gold Plated for rings. It is a highly recommendable material for durable designs.

STEEL
 

Looks like - slightly rough metal. The steel materials have a unique look. It's a sturdy material with a cool-ass style. A little rough, a little bold. 

Price wise - your wallets best buddy. Since the printing of steel is a lot less complicated than the printing of precious metals, this translates to its price. Also because there's a lot more steel to go around than gold of course.

We recommend - Steel for any design that is moderately simple or has a medium difficulty. It is strong, and sturdy. Because it's a bit more rough, it has some limitations where details are concerned.
