I just got the necklace recently. I read up on how to care for it. Aparently it's plated with sterling and then dipped in a special lacquer, so you absolutely can't use silver cleaner or even a treated polishing cloth to clean non-sterling Brighton jewelry.I agree with you all. I like many of the designs and how pieces from different lines mix and match well. However, I too, wish they used sterling or were priced lower.
Jan, love the necklace. I actually have the Deco anklet which I've shortened and worn as a bracelet. It's worn very well and I, too, like it for everyday wear. Even though it's not sterling, have you all found your pieces stand up well over time?
