Gold or silver plating is the process of adding a thick layer of these precious metals onto the surface of another metal. When we use plating we opt for a durable, high-grade brass composite as our base metal and thicker-than-ordinary plating of gold/silver which means our products have the very real potential to last a lifetime or more.
Plated pieces can be prone to oxidation, particularly if not taken care of. You can use a polishing cloth to restore your item's shine and make your beautiful gold plated treasures look like new.
Sterling Silver has been used in fine jewellery since the 12th century - and for good reason. It's a fabulous material to work with and gives a long lasts ing lustre. Our Premium Sterling Silver is made of 92.5% pure silver, which is higher-than-most jewellers. We use sterling silver because pure silver is too soft to hold the intricate level of detail our pieces have become famous for.
Use a soft cloth to clean your silver treasures. To avoid potential scratches, store your jewellery in the pouch that we provided or in a separate compartment in your jewellery box.
We've worked hard over the years to identify gemstones that have minimal impact on the environment. For example, one of our favourite gemstones is Zircon. This stone is far older than most diamonds yet is much less traumatic for both the environment and worker to extract. This also means zircon is naturally cheaper than diamond, however most people can't spot the difference. Better for the earth and for your wallet
Clean your gemstones with warm water occasionally to keep shine and shimmer.
