  • Recycled Metals

    Vermeil. We use vermeil for many of our designs. Compared to solid gold, it's a more affordable option—without compromising on quality. Vermeil is solid gold over a base layer of sterling silver. This makes the jewellery hard wearing and tarnish resistant.

    Gold-fill. All our chains and findings are 14k gold fill. Made from a thick layer of solid gold bonded over a base layer. Neither gold fill nor vermeil will flake, wear off, or discolour.

    Sterling Silver. We use genuine 925 sterling silver for our silver jewellery designs. 925 sterling silver is of 92.5% pure silver, alloyed with harder metals to improve durability.

  • Sustainable Stones

    Simulated Gems. We never use mined diamonds. Instead we use simulated gems created with a high level of clarity. They replicate mined diamonds both in style and quality but at a much more affordable price.

    Natural Gemstones. We use responsibly-sourced stones for our range of gemstone and raw crystal jewellery. Each stone is hand-selected by our suppliers who have full traceability direct to the source.

  • Hypoallergenic

    Hypoallergenic jeweller means that there is minimal risk of causing an allergic reaction. We only ever use gold and sterling silver, meaning our jewellery is ideal for sensitive skin.

  • Nickel-Free

    None of our jewellery contains nickel. So you can safely wear our jewellery knowing it's nickel-free.

  • Vegan-Friendly

    All our jewellery is vegan-friendly. We never use pearls, leather, silk, beeswax, or any other materials derived from animals.

Jewellery Care

What can damage or dull my jewellery?

Knowing what causes accidental damage can help prevent it. These are the most common causes:

  • Water damage from exposure to water or moisture
  • Sun and heat damage from exposure to bright sunlight
  • Exposure to perfume, skincare, or cleaning products
  • Physical damage from tangles and snagging
  • Poor cleaning techniques
  • Improper storage
  • Age

How do I prevent jewellery damage?

To help prevent accidental damage to your jewellery, we recommend you:

  • Do not shower or bathe while wearing jewellery
  • Remove rings when cleaning or washing your hands
  • Avoid jewellery coming into contact with cosmetic products
  • Put jewellery on after dressing to avoid tangles
  • Remove jewellery before undressing to prevent snags
  • Wear your jewellery regularly to prevent natural tarnishing
  • Clean your jewellery to maintain its shine

How should I care for my jewellery during wear?

Damage to jewellery can happen without you being aware of it. Exposure to everyday products may tarnish or corrode the metal. While snagging jewellery on clothing is a major cause of wear and tear.

To protect your jewellery, it's best to put it on after getting dressed and before undressing. Be careful when applying perfume and skincare. Remove jewellery when using cleaning products. Prevent tangles by using a necklace detangler, and clean jewellery often.

How should I store my jewellery?

Always store your jewellery in a dark, cool, dry place. Away from sunlight and out of humid environments. Make sure to fasten clasps to prevent chains tangling and pendants rubbing together. We recommend using a jewellery storage box for peace of mind.

How should I clean my jewellery?

Tarnishing on sterling silver is natural. Proper storage and regular cleaning will prevent this from happening. Typically vermeil and gold-fill won't tarnish. But in rare instances, it can. Cleaning it will maintain its shine and protect against damage.

  • Jewellery Hallmarking

    Many of our minimal jewellery pieces fall below the weight threshold for hallmarking, 1 gram for gold and 7.78 grams for silver. So you won't always find a hallmark except for on the clasp identifying each piece as 14K gold-fill or 925 sterling silver.
