Real silver has a history of being used in the creation of jewellery and crowns for many centuries. Many of our tiaras and accessories still use this traditional method of silver plating for a high quality finish. This is perfect for more contemporary designs, princess styling or to create a bright and sparkling effect.
Austria leads the world in the production of precision-cut crystals. They are made using a mixture of quartz sand and natural minerals and are cut with sophisticated machinery to ensure the highest shine and sparkle. These are cut with facets to sparkle like a real diamond. Traditonally crystals have been cut to imitate diamonds since the 18th century and the productions methods today are highly skilled for a flawless final finish.
These are produced with the same high quality materials used to produce crystals which look like diamonds. The only difference is the cutting method to create perfect light refraction. Sharp cutting and many more facets produces the traditional bead shape with irresistible sparkle. Ours go through a strict cutting method as the more facets cut, the more brilliance.
Not all synthetic pearls are the same quality. Sometimes we need to use artificial pearls as the design may require perfectly round pearls of the same size, and to find these in nature would be more expensive than diamonds. However, the pearls we use are the highest quality possible ; they are created using glass instead of plastic or beads to give the same weight as real pearls and undergo a lengthy process which gives them a natural lustre (sheen) in ivory which looks like a real pearl compared with just a pearlised paint.
