Bronze was first used about 5,000 years ago (in the Early Bronze Age!) in Egypt and Mesopotamia. Traditionally a mix of copper and tin, modern bronze is mixed with aluminium which improves its strength and gives it an elegant, antique gold look. Jewellery made from bronze is ultimately long lasting, hard wearing and excellent value.
Elanora Australia sells bronze jewellery which is safe to wear and gives an air of beautiful antiquity without the expensive price tag.
