Brushed Matte vs. Bright Polish Finish
Our matte finish is soft and velvety, and our bright polish is crisp and classic. Find examples of each below to help you choose the best finish choice for your Melanie Casey jewelry!
Brushed Matte Finish
Some helpful tips for choosing your finish:
- If you really like the look of a very hammered texture, the bright polish is probably the way to go! The light will reflect more easily off of the angles created from the hammer with a shiny polish, and it will really make the hammering texture stand out. (Hammering will still be apparent with a brushed matte finish, but it is less pronounced.)
- If you are ordering your jewelry in white gold, keep in mind that because of how light reflects on the metal, white gold will look quite different depending on what finish you choose. With a bright polish, white gold tends to look whiter, similar to platinum. A brushed matte finish tends to bring out the gray tones of white gold.
- We do not use rhodium plating on our jewelry. The color of our 14k white gold is a natural gray-toned metal, and not the stark colorless white hue of a rhodium "dipped" ring
- If you are ordering a ring to match another ring you already wear, we recommend matching the same type of finish for a more cohesive, pulled-together look.
