We first brought Brene to Hey June in 2021 and y'all looooooved her.  But the quality wasn't up to par with Hey June standards.  So we pulled her and went back to the drawing board- we knew we'd only do her again if we could get that gold filled goodness.  After 9 months, countless vendors, and huge headaches, we found what we were looking for! So here she is- higher quality and with more options in lengths and widths- the Brene you've been waiting so patiently for!

All of our necklaces are named after powerful female literary characters and writers.  Brene is named after Brene Brown, the leader on connection, shame awareness, and showing us all the way to being our wholehearted, badass selves.

“You either walk inside your story and own it or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness.” -Brene Brown

At Hey June, all of our necklaces, bracelets, huggies, and hoops are gold-filled or sterling silver pieces!  Gold-filled jewelry means that there is a layer of real gold bonded over brass- it is tarnish-resistant and hypoallergenic. These are pieces you can put on and keep on. Gold-filled jewelry gives you the beauty, quality, and durability of solid gold without having to pay for it! Wahoo!

With proper care and handling, your gold-filled or sterling silver piece can give you a very long and happy life! Here are our recommendations for keeping your piece looking pristine!

  • Store in an airtight bag when not wearing
  • Wipe jewelry off after swimming or lots of exposure to water or other elements.
  • Avoid contact with sunscreen, cleaning products with bleach, perfumes, scented lotions, hairsprays, etc. If your piece does have contact with these things, no biggie, just wipe it off as soon as possible.
  • Gently clean your piece with water and mild dish soap if it starts to look worn.
  • Use a soft anti-tarnishing cloth on your gold-filled or sterling silver piece to remove stubborn dirt.

See our full Jewelry Care Guide for more details.

You may purchase the fix it fee here.


All of our gold-filled jewelry is anti-tarnish. That means with the proper care it will retain its color and shine. Please read our jewelry care guide for information on how to keep your pieces looking pristine for the longest amount of time possible.

We will replace the item at no cost to you

30–90 DAYS

You may cancel an order and receive a full refund if our team has not started fulfilling the item yet. To see if your order qualifies for cancellation, please email with your order number.


If you have ordered a wrong length we highly recommend purchasing our removable 2 inch extender. This will give added length to any jewelry piece.

I have had my eye on this necklace for a while and have been so pleased. It goes well by itself, like when I’m wearing this to work, or also very well layered for when I’m dressing up for another occasion!

Hey June Brene Review
United States United States


I love Hey June jewelry and by for my daughter and myself frequently! Never had any issues , and love this necklace, however I wore last weekend and when I took it off I realized all the color diminished…more so on the side likely touching my skin more but essentially the necklace looks silver against my other HJ “gold items”. Super bummed-it was a fav!

Hi Krista! We had major issues with a batch of Brene which is why we pulled it from the site. Please reach out to customer service and we'd love to get you store credit so you can get something else you like more and that won't turn on you! -Bonnie

Beautiful buuuut...

Let me start by saying I love this company - like LOVE. Everything I own, and it’s a lot, is beautiful and amazing quality, customer service is a dream, and just all around amazing business. So, I also looove the Brene. Stunning in person and pairs well with my Celie and Zora. But I’ve worn it like 4-5 times and the side that touches my skin is wearing away. I don’t wear perfume or lotion and don’t shower with it and I use natural, chemical free body wash. I tried buffing/polishing it but it’s still noticeably worn. You can see in the picture how the one side looks slightly more silver. The front side is still vibrant which is good but I’m a little bummed considering the slightly higher price point and how much I love all my other pieces.

Very classy and beautiful necklace

I gave Brene to my mom as a Mother’s Day gift. She loved it and she feels she is on the trend with the thick chain. It is super classy and I’m glad I bought it for her.
