Here are some answers to common questions we receive about our jewelry. Please contact us if your questions are not answered here.
In the unlikely event that you lose one of your earrings, we will do our best to help you get a replacement pair at a discounted rate! We do not offer just a single replacement earring as leathers can differ in color/thickness ever so slightly that we wouldn't want you to have to mismatched earrings! As long as the leather is still available, send us an email at email@example.com with subject "Lost Earring" and we will try our best to hep you out! Note that you will be responsible for shipping fees on your replacement pair, just as any other order.
Yes! Our earrings are great for sensitive ears, not only are they lightweight but they are also hypoallergenic! Our ear wires are all Sterling Silver Filled or 14KT Gold Filled. Our post earrings are all made with Titanium posts that are nickel free and hypoallergenic.
14KT Gold and Sterling Silver naturally tarnish over a period of time and certain leathers can cause that naturally occurring process to happen even quicker. We recommend wiping your ear wires with a jewelry cloth whenever you should notice tarnish start to build up. They will look as good as new!
Yes! Our earring backs are meant to keep your earrings on your ears ;) Rubber earring backs can stretch out over time allowing your earrings to move out of your ear lobe, in that event, you can request an extra pair in your next order. Our rubber backs are meant to fit our ear wires very securely, so you shouldn't have a problem with them falling off. We do not recommend replacing them with other earring backs as they may not be as secure, therefore risking the chance of you losing one or both of your earrings. You can request a pair of backs at any time with your order!
Not at all! Our earrings are all made with lightweight leather, acrylic resin, and wood! All of them are virtually weightless compared to heavy metal earrings! Your ears will thank you when you give a pair of ours a try!
Most of our earrings come in at least 2 size options or even more (there are a few styles that are one size only). Should you have trouble finding a photo of a particular size/style on, send us an email and we will do our best to get you a photo of them on someone or a side by side photo of the earring sizes. We are going to try our best to get pictures up of all of our earring styles/sizes as time allows. Please be patient with us as we add our sizing chart feature to our site as it does take a lot of time with the vast variety of styles and sizes we offer here at Brinley & Co.!

Please always double check that your address info is correct and up to date to avoid this.
No. Due to the nature of leather, it can bend and fade over time and therefore won't look perfect for forever unfortunately. Please be aware of this when ordering any leather earring. Makeup, oils, moisturizers, hair product, and many other factors such as storage or the leather itself, will determine your earrings longevity.
Please keep your earrings hanging up nicely or lying flat away from any areas that might have moisture. We recommend you hang them on a display to ensure that they stay hanging nicely! Try to avoid storing them in the bathroom due to moisture as well as hairsprays, etc!
