Materials

For jewellery to become a lasting treasure, beautiful design is not enough. Good looks will lose their appeal if the quality of materials is lacking in substance.

 

Gold

The purest gold, otherwise known as ‘fine gold’, is graded as 24 carat. It is beautiful but extremely soft and very easy to damage. This is why, for practical reasons, an alloy of other metals - usually palladium, copper and silver - is added.Jewellery, like ours, referred to as 18 carat gold, is made from 75% fine gold. This combines durability with the perfect shine and colour.

 

Diamonds

We use some of the finest diamonds. Top Wesselton (colour F to G, Vs to Si). And we buy them from official dealers who trade in accordance with UN resolutions, in areas of the world free from conflict.
