Gold has an extraordinary heritage with unique qualities. As an enduring element found naturally in a distinct yellow colour, gold is resistant to rust, tarnish, and corrosion. Although gold is very strong, it's also the most malleable of all precious metals.
We craft our jewellery using 18k gold. 18k gold is composed of 75% gold, which is alloyed with other metals to make it strong enough for everyday wear.
A silvery white character is what makes white gold jewellery so appealing. In order to make the gold white, it is combined with metal alloys that are white in nature and plated with an extremely hard element called rhodium. Although strong, rhodium may wear away over time. Replating is a simple process that can be done to restore whiteness to your jewellery.
The beautiful pink hue of rose gold jewellery is created by using a copper alloy. Again, the overall percentages of metal alloys is the same for rose gold as it is for yellow or white, there is just a different mixture in what alloys are used.
Since gold is a natural element, it is affected by harsh chemicals such as chlorine or other cleaning products. We recommend that you remove your jewellery when using chemicals to reduce daily abrasions and prolong the lustre. To clean gold jewellery, use a solution of warm water and detergent-free soap with a soft-bristled brush. When not worn, store your gold pieces in soft cloth bags or the original box to protect them from the elements of daily exposure.
Sterling silver is the standard for beautiful high-quality silver jewellery. It's over 90% pure silver, mixed with alloys to add strength and durability. And it won't wear down, as silver plating can.
With proper care, your fine quality silver will last a lifetime. To minimise scratches and other damage, store your silver jewellery either in a cloth pouch or in a separate compartment in your jewellery box. Avoid exposing your silver to household chemicals when cleaning with bleach or ammonia, or when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals can damage silver.
Sterling is also the most affordable of our precious metal offerings.
Palladium, one of the rarest metals in the world, is a member of the Platinum Group Metals. These metals are also referred to as "Noble Metals" due to their superior ability to withstand corrosion and oxidation.
Palladium, which is listed on the Periodic Table of elements, is lighter in weight than its sister metal, Platinum.
A naturally white metal, Palladium is hypoallergenic, will not tarnish and remains white forever. Palladium is 95% pure when used in jewellery, is extremely durable and does not require alloy metals and/or plating for protection, which ensures that it will remain white as long as you own your jewellery.
