We believe in creating high quality jewellery that can be passed down from mother to daughter so we set our sights in creating pieces that are personal, sentimental and forever. And it is for this reason, that all our pieces are made in small quantities by skilled artisans in our precious metals of choice.
For us to achieve this, we did away with metals that didn't last or turned your finger green. That includes vermeil or plated gold; fancy words that just mean that the gold that you see before you will slowly fade to reveal its true nature beneath. Nope, we don't think that's what you were after either.
GOLD KARATS EXPLAINED
The highest form of gold available and therefore, the most expensive. 99.9% gold is used with barely any traces of other metals, taking on a distinct bright yellow colour. It is the least in density and therefore very soft and pliable making it unsuitable for any form of jewellery.
18-karat gold is mixed 75% gold and 25% of metals like copper, silver and other alloys. It is less expensive than its 24k or 22k counterparts as it has slightly lesser gold content.
Jewellery with this gold composition is paired mostly with precious stones.
14-karat solid gold is the most reasonably priced whilst maintaining excellent quality and durability; the perfect compromise. Its gold content mixed with alloys allows for this gold to be subtle, creating an almost champagne sheen. Jewellery made in this metal scratches less and lasts longer as it wears out much more slowly.
