What is it about brass? More understated than gold, but still goldish, it makes everything look just a little bit zhuzhed-up. Maybe that’s why we’ve been so fond of the stuff lately (highlighting a
brass Kikkerland watering can and Pamela Love pendant, both on sale). It’s also relatively affordable, the ultimate cheap-but-expensive-looking material. Below, our favorite brass things on Amazon.
