Base Metal Chain Finishes
A brief introduction to our base metal chain finishes and popular styles of jewelry for each finish.  Sometimes it's difficult to tell the difference between some of our chains, such as Rhodium and Silver Plated, or Copper and Rose Gold.  Hopefully the images below will give you some guidance in determining which chain finish you prefer!

Antique Brass
Antique brass chain is a popular finish choice for steampunk jewelry and vintage-style jewelry. Brass plated chain and findings also pair well with natural jewelry motifs, such as leaves, feathers, geodes and crystals. Our brass chain is the perfect addition to your handcrafted brass jewelry components. 

Antique Copper
The aged copper finish is well suited for Western and boho style jewelry, and it compliments turquoise and other natural stones. Copper is also popular with natural designs such as wire-wrapped tree of life pendants. Our chains are brass-based with copper plating and an antique finish to create that vintage appeal.

Antique Silver
Our most popular finish by far - all of our chains are available in the antique silver plated finish! Our base metal chain is plated with sterling silver and finished with an antiquing process to mimic the look of vintage silver chain. Also referred to as oxidized silver or vintage sterling silver, this popular jewelry chain is sure to suit almost any design style. It makes a great basic chain finish to stock in your store or use it as a base chain for a pewter charm necklace.
