Gold, Pearls, and Gemstones: Discover Jewellery Materials

Gold, Pearls, and Gemstones: Discover Jewellery Materials

When it comes to crafting exquisite jewellery, the materials used have a crucial role in determining the quality and beauty of the final piece. In our jewellery designs, we only use the finest materials, including gold vermeil, solid gold, pearls, and gemstones like white and blue topaz.

Gold Vermeil: A Touch of Luxury

Gold vermeil is a luxurious and affordable alternative to solid gold. It consists of a thick layer of gold layered over sterling silver with a minimum gold thickness of 2.5 microns, giving the jewellery a rich and lustrous finish. With proper care, gold vermeil jewellery can last for years, making it a popular choice for those looking for high-quality pieces.

Solid Gold: Timeless Elegance

Solid gold is a classic choice for jewellery that stands the test of time. With its durability and timeless appeal, solid gold pieces are often passed down through generations as heirlooms. The purity of gold is measured in karats, with 24k being the purest form and most commonly used karats include 9K, 14k and 18k. All gold used in our Gold Vermeil and Solid Gold pieces is 18K grade.

Pearls: A Symbol of Purity

Pearls are organic gems that are formed inside the shells of certain mollusks. These mollusks highly contribute to improve water quality, and by cultivating freshwater pearls, farmers contribute to the preservation of freshwater ecosystems and promote biodiversity. The pearls are then extracted without harming the mussels, allowing them to continue their natural filtration process. Known for their lustrous appearance and timeless beauty, pearls have been treasured for centuries. For more information on Pearls visit this post: The Sustainable Journey of Freshwater Pearls

Gemstones: Sparkling Accents

Gemstones like amethysts, white and blue topaz are prized for their vibrant colors and sparkling brilliance. White topaz is a popular diamond alternative, known for its clarity and affordability. On the other hand, blue topaz comes in various shades of blue, from sky blue to deep London blue, adding a pop of color to any jewellery design.

We carefully select each material to ensure that every piece we create is of the highest quality. Whether you prefer the luxurious sheen of gold vermeil, the timeless elegance of solid gold, the colorful allure of gemstones, or the classic beauty of pearls, each material brings its own unique charm to the jewellery pieces you wear. ✨
