ETHOS

We work mainly with 14k or 18k solid gold. Solid gold is a precious metal that is less likely to discolour with exposure to water and perspiration, since it is the least reactive metal.

Our solid gold pieces comprise of at least 58.8% gold, depending on the karat of the relevant piece. The remaining metals are alloyed metals. 

01 METALS

14k has the ideal shade of (yellow) gold to embody modernity in our pieces. Also, its higher alloyed content enables our delicate pieces to achieve a level of durability for everyday wear. Tarnishing may occur to 14k solid gold, but this can be easily removed with a polishing cloth. Refer to care instructions here.

For certain pieces or collections, we may provide the option of 18k solid gold to offer both variety and an enhanced investment value. 

02 SOLID GOLD

Our stones are real af - we only work with natural precious and semi-precious stones. Keep an eye out for these unique stone creations!
