Courtney is a simple and elegant headpiece, crafted by using tiny cut solitaire stones and cut crystal beads set in a delicate pattern along the headband and accented by natural lustre man-made pale ivory pearls and silver enamelled flowers. This design looks wonderful with hair up or down and can suit many dress styles as it is so versatile, but is often chosen for beach and overseas weddings. Plated in 14ct Gold and measuring 2cm at the highest point. Set with genuine Austrian Crystals cut both to look like real diamonds and as faceted beads for extra sparkle as well as natural lustre man made pearls. Each item comes beautifully packaged in our luxury designer boxes to keep it looking it’s best.
Each and every one of our designs is handcrafted by skilled artisans in the traditional way with all stones and elements hand picked and set. Our company ethos includes ensuring ethical workplace practises, working to make bridal supply chains more responsible.
The earliest crowns and jewellery in history were made with gold. We continue this tradition using real 14k gold plating on many of our tiaras, accessories and jewllery designs. We use a special belnd of real gold with a tiny percentage of silver to create our signature " Champagne Gold" tone which stops it lookinng too brassy (orange toned).
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.
