Our plan has always been to make jewellery that is everlasting - both in terms of style and quality. We strive to inspire mindful consumption and freedom of expression while staying focused on our goal to operate responsibly. For us, this also means promoting values that maximise longevity, through our design philosophy which embraces creativity and timeless luxury, to the handcrafting process in our workshop, and our make to order policy. Our objective is to use only responsibly sourced and fully traceable materials in our jewellery. One of our first action areas is tracing our supply chain. Traceability is one of the toughest challenges we face as a small business in our effort to become more sustainable, but it's also one of the most important. We work closely with the facilities that produce our materials and final product and prioritise long term relationships. We have been reviewing our supply chains to understand more about our materials, so we can ensure our stones and metals come from the most responsible sources. We’ve made a good start by reviewing our current suppliers, identifying areas for improvement and introducing new suppliers as we develop new collections. We will continue to integrate our expectations for responsible sourcing into our contracts with all suppliers and extend this down our supply chain
This is one of the biggest challenges we face but we are taking one step at a time to ensure we know as much as possible about our supply chain. Unfortunately some things we have been using are not traceable but we are constantly researching new ethical sources for each component we use. With more ethical and traceable options there is also increased cost so this is another tricky area we are figuring out. An example being, our ethical sapphires are more expensive than diamonds and so how do we provide you with a product that is still affordable?
Because diamonds are formed under tremendous heat and pressure they all contain imperfections. The very best and rare clarity is internally flawless (IF). Because many inclusions are not visible to the naked eye, diamonds are graded under 10x magnification.
Diamond weight is measured in carats, one carat equals 200 milligrams in weight. All C’s combined means no two stones are the same. We recommend choosing the best quality stone over size.
Black diamonds are natural diamonds which have their colour changed with heating or irridation to be permanently black. Because they are black only the carat weight applies and the cut, colour and clarity can't be rated. Often large black diamonds have many inclusions, we aim to source the cleanest gems available
Grey diamonds are a white diamond with many natural inclusions and shades which adds to the rustic nature of this beautiful gemstone. Because they are imperfect diamonds you tend to get a real salt and pepper effect which makes each diamond extremely unique. We cost and source the highest grade but can get cloudier options to fit within your budgets.
