On top of our radar in 2023 : Gold-plated brass jewels
You don’t have to be a big jewelry person to know how adding even a pair of gold hoops can make your whole look come together. Jewellery helps your outfits reach their maximum potential. Whether you add a statement necklace over a sweater or a delicate bracelet on a summer dress, trust us, a little shine can go a long way.
But we understand, when it comes to shopping for jewelry, it can be difficult to know where to start. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the perfect piece. This is especially true when it comes to brass jewelry, which has currently taken the top spot everywhere for all the right reasons.
At Alter Ego we are experts at creating 18k gold-plated brass jewels with exquisite detail so they last as long IRL as they last on Instagram. Gold-plated brass as the name suggests is a metal alloy made by combining copper and zinc. The brass is then plated with a thin layer of gold to give it a luxurious look.
Gold-plated brass is an affordable & beautiful way to add quality and style to your life (and wardrobe).
Late-night shopping in bed? Here are 6 tips to ensure you love the pieces that you buy:

Consider the Design: Think about the design aesthetic that best suits you and your wardrobe. Some questions to ask yourself include: Are you a minimalist or a maximalist? Are you looking for pieces for everyday wear or specific occasions? If your aim is to just start wearing more jewels, the best pieces are often timeless and classic, which will go well with all your outfits.
