About Bronze Bronze jewelry has a warm luster and a lovely rich antique gold color. Over time it will form a dark patina, this gives each piece its own individual, organic, and antiqued finish. If you prefer you can always bring back its original shiny finish with a jewelry polishing cloth.
PLEASE NOTE: Before you order please check sizing information - it can be hard to gauge jewelry sizes from pictures alone. On some of the seal pieces the text is so small as to be read only with a magnifying glass making the meaning a secret between you and those you choose to tell.
