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).
We use the ancient art of enamelling in many of our accessories, especially those featuring flowers and leaves for added depth and artistry. Opaque, bronze enamel fondant is hand painted onto each gold element to create a matt or satin effect instead of a high shine metal finish. This helps to create a more delicate final appearance. All enamelling is done by hand using traditional methods.
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.
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) which looks like a real pearl compared with just a pearlised paint. The pearls used in this designs are a deep champagne tone to give added depth and warmth.
