Used to create this design...

Rhodium Plating

Rhodium is a special and rare metal within the platinum family of metals which we use to plate many of our accessories and jewellery.  It is more expensive than gold on the precious metal market and it started to be used in silverware and jewellery making in the early 1900's as it created a beautiful, tarnish resistant finish.  It's colour tone is a slightly darker, giving a more antique effect than silver, making it perfect for accessories designed with vintage influences.

Rhodium Enamel Work

We use the ancient art of enamelling in many of our accessories, especially those featuring flowers and leaves for added depth and artistry. Opaque  enamel fondant is hand painted onto each Rhodium 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.

Austrian Cut Crystals

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.
