‘Reader, I married him’ brooch | Charlotte Brontë

The Brontë Collection

One of the most famous lines in all of Literature, etched on a brooch in pale blue glow-in-the-dark pigment; they belong of course to Charlote Brontë's Jane Eyre. 

£2 goes to the Brontë Society to support their learning programme.

Care instructions

Acrylic can break if dropped and will snap under pressure. Please store your jewellery in its box and keep away from lotions and sprays as moisture can discolour metal parts. 

Shipping & Returns 

I aim to send out orders within 2-3 days, but at busy time this may take a litlte longer. Special orders and bespoke designs can take up to a week longer, and with such a big range of products, some designs are made to order so can't be sent next day. Everything is still made by me! All post is sent Royal Mail Tracked-48. You will get an email to let you know when your order is fulfilled and on its way. 

If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase you can return it to Wear and Resist in its original box and packaging within a month of purchase for a refund excluding postage. For reasons of hygiene I am afraid I cannot refund earrings.

Perfection as always

Absolutely love buying from Wear & Resist and this piece was perfect! I love the fact it glows in the dark as well, a great statement piece.

A collaboration with the Brontë Parsonage Museum. 

£2 from the sale of every piece in this collection will go to help support their Learning fund.

About Wear and Resist

Wear and Resist was launched by me, Sarah Day, in early 2017 as a way to channel my frustration at the political climate into a creative pursuit that would raise money for women's charities.

Solar powered! 🌞

Wear and Resist is now running partly on solar energy (almost completely in the summer, and we are working to improve the winter!)
