Brighton charms are created through a multi-step process that begins with a designer's hand sketch. Each piece is cast in solid brass or zinc alloy and is lavishly dipped in pure silver. Since silver has a natural tendency to tarnish (oxidize) and scratch, we add a protective layer of lacquer to assist in retarding this natural process.
Brighton earring posts, French wires, and lever backs are composed of sterling silver (925). Clip-on earrings are not sterling silver, they are stamped brass with a plating finish.
