About our Metals
Our Yellow 18 Karat, the perfect blend of the yellow Gold’s warmth, with a creamier quality, which is extremely beautiful - rich and refined - on all skin tones.
Our 18 Karat Rose Gold is the result of an infusion of copper and a touch of silver, thus giving it that warm, rich, earthy quality that makes it such a beautiful metal, the silver successfully paling it from the otherwise ‘red gold’. The result is what we call our “dusty rose”. Indeed this just might be our all-time favourite metal blend.
Our Signature 10 Karat Gold.
Our signature 10 karat Yellow Gold is an unsung hero. It's an underestimated Gold, the 9kt equivalent having been very popular for centuries in England, this is a beautiful, very strong, pale and creamy gold that shines just brilliantly, and pops against all skin tones, being less yellow than the typical 18-24kt Golds. As the current flashy "Kardashian culture" evolved, the higher karat golds have became coveted, but time and time again it's my 10 karat pieces that people notice and fall in love with. It's a beautiful fine metal, strong, classy and unpretentious. We're bringing it back!
An underestimated and under appreciated metal, we wanted Silver to be a part of the collection, and it took multiple visits to different Casting Companies to find the quality we insisted on - a metal that is fine and bright, almost powder white at high shine, and yet one which lends itself so well to tarnished detailing. For some of the highly textured organic pieces, the more this metal wears, the better the product looks.
Our plated line is something we are incredibly proud of, and here’s why.
There are a lot of bad plates out there - a LOT - and even high-end brands marketing “rose gold”, which quickly fades, rubs off, and marks the skin - giving plating a very bad name. What is typically being done is something called a “flash plate”, where the metals are exposed to the electrical plating solution for just a few seconds, to achieve the colour and appearance, at a low cost. That isn’t our standard and not how we roll.
We are proud to say we are working with the incredible Tanury Industries to obtain the highest quality plate possible. Renowned as one of the best in their game, and awarded for their environmental awareness and efforts, Tanury are of a level of excellence where they are doing large scale pieces of Architectural and Aerospace work - think grand building interiors, yacht detailing and plane interiors.
Plating to a standard we stand by of has been one of the biggest hurdles and we are so proud to now be working with Tanury.
We plate at 2microns, which is 80mils of Gold, fused to silver, or bronze on our larger pieces. We then use a nano-ceramic technology to fuse the finest layer of ceramic, the same way as we do the gold, to the piece, as a protective scratch and tarnish resistant layer. It looks incredible, and it will last.
Platinum is a white metal, but unlike gold it is much stronger, and therefore used in jewelry in almost its pure form (approximately 95% pure).
Platinum is extremely long wearing and is less grey than the mislabeled white gold, so it does not need to be Rhodium plated like the white gold does.
Platinum is very dense (heavy), so a platinum ring will feel much heavier than an 18kt gold ring. It is, however, very expensive. A platinum ring will be approximately twice the price of an 18kt gold ring.
Anything can be made in almost any metal you choose, so please do contact us if you have any special desires or requests.
