About our findings
Metal and stones – The majority of the earrings, pendants, and rings are in 18ct yellow and white gold and diamond set (if there are stones). Some items are available in 9ct (yellow or white) gold and the majority of the range can be ordered in silver (rhodium plated) with CZ's. Some few designs are also available in rose gold.
Brochure – A brochure which contains the majority of the range is available upon request. Please call or visit our office.
Prices – Please call us for individual prices or a current price list.
Style codes – All designs have a three digit style code so that they can be identified. Please go to the gallery and click on the design you are interested in. The style code should be visible when you hover the mouse over the image.
Gram weight and diamond content – The gold weight and diamond content information is visible when you click on a design. All diamonds are GH VS and very well cut. We take pride in the quality of the finish and this includes the stones that we use.
