- Kuchi Tribal Jewelry: The antique tribal pendant is not gold or sterling silver, though it has a similar look with some patina. Kuchi jewelry is generally made with a brass base known as “gillet” metal. The base is about 75% – 80% brass with either copper, silver, iron or all of these metals mixed in. Then a thick silver plating is buffed on the surface and can last for years.
- About Vintage/Antique Jewelry:The metal has a "distressed" look, however, this does not effect the beauty, nor durability. VT respects the history of its vintage pieces and does not alter or make repairs with modern materials.
