Copper Jewelry with Color: 6 Beautiful Patinated Pieces
November 04, 2015
Colorful earrings can put a whole new look on an ensemble, adding interest to simple, solid-colored pieces or bringing out hues in outfits that combine multiple colors. Many women wear gemstone earrings to get that pop of color, but if you don't want to add sparkle to your outfit, these looks just aren't right.
Patinated copper earrings are the perfect alternative to gemstone jewelry, as they have a matte, earthy look yet are still colorful. Unlike painted metal jewelry, patinated copper earrings have been exposed to a process that naturally causes the precious metal to turn. This means the color won't flake off over the years and that no two pairs of the earrings are ever identical. At John S. Brana Handmade Jewelry, our patinated copper earrings are finished with a protective clear coating to enhance their durability even more. Here are six of our favorite pairs of patinated copper earrings:
Red Patinated Tear Drop Earrings - Measuring 4 inches in length by 1/4-inch in width, these Red Patinated Tear Drop Earrings add drama and color to an ensemble. The long, slender shape of the red and copper earrings helps to elongate the face and makes them a perfect finish for a ponytail or up-do.
Apple Green Patinated Earrings - Bright apple green makes these lovely earrings a true standout style. The Apple Green Patinated Earrings are a play on the traditional tear drop with cut out centers to add to their appeal. The earrings are 2-3/4 inches long by 1-1/4 inches wide.
Small Blue Patinated Copper Tear Drop Earrings - These earrings feature a bold royal blue color but are just 2-1/2 inches long by 3/4 inches wide. The dainty size makes the earrings subtle and perfect for both day and evening wear.
Fold Formed Apple Green Copper Leaf Earrings - No matter what the season, the Fold Formed Apple Green Copper Leaf Earrings will have you thinking of spring. The 2-3/4-inch by 1/2-inch earrings are shaped like leaves and meticulously hand textured to give the illusion of veins running along their surfaces.
Fold Formed Blue Patinated Leaf Earrings - These elongated oval earrings are incredibly simple but have a bold pop of blue green color that instantly catches the eye. The earrings are 4 inches long by 1 1/8 inches wide and will complement outfits in a wide variety of colors.
Large Maroon Patinated Lily Pad Earrings - These earrings combine deep maroon with flecks of green to bring the organic shape of a lily pad to vivid life. At 3 inches by 2 inches in size, the earrings are large enough to get noticed but are still light in weight for comfortable wear day or night.
