Our metal is in a natural state and will lighten and darken with wear. We have taken great care to emulate the natural occurrence of patina and shine throughout time. As you wear your Bella Vintaj Jewelry, it will begin to take on an appearance unique to you! This change is intentional and enhances the character of your jewelry. These "love worn values" vary from the luster of antique bronze to the brilliance of rose gold depending on how often you wear it.
