Precious Metal
  • Gold
    Universally celebrated for centuries, gold has long symbolised wealth, sophistication and reverence through its use in fine jewellery. Highly malleable in its most natural form, gold is well suited to the delicate manipulation that jewellery making requires, but this softness also places limitations on its durability. Therefore, gold is often alloyed with copper, zinc, nickel, or even silver, to increase its strength. These alloys also bring delightful undertones of rose, yellow or white to gold jewellery, ensuring that there is a gold color for every skin tone. The alloy ratio will also determine the gold's karat weight, or purity.
  • Silver
    Silver's affordability and availability have made it enduringly popular with both the designers and wearers of fine jewellery.
  • Platinum
    Confined to the mines of South Africa, platinum's scarcity, durability, density and dazzling sheen have bolstered its popularity as a fine jewellery metal in recent decades.
  • Palladium
    Palladium belongs to the platinum group of metals and is a popular alternative to other alloy substances. While many people believe palladium is a man-made metal, it's actually a natural substance found in only a few parts of the world. Like platinum, palladium has long-been used in the making of jewellery, usually as an alloy of 95% purity. Palladium is also hypoallergenic, and is one of the common metals mixed with gold to make white gold.
  • Gold Rings
    Gold's stunning color and excellent malleability have made it a popular and prestigious fine jewellery ingredient for centuries. Since its first known use in jewellery by the ancient Romans, gold has endured throughout time as the most favoured precious metal to symbolise eternal love and devotion. While gold's high malleability lends itself to designs of almost all shapes, as well as making gold rings the easiest to resize, gold does need to be alloyed with other metals to build its resilience against wear and tear. While the combination of pure gold and alloys changes according to tastes and budgets, 24 karat gold jewellery is considered the most pure, which comprises 99% pure gold and 1% alloy.
  • Gold Pendants
    A versatile style of jewellery that's fashionable with women of all ages, gold pendants typically feature a solid gold or gemstone centrepiece that dangles from a necklace made of fine gold. The necklace may weave through the pendant directly through a small hole, or the pendant can attach to a bail that hangs from the necklace. The wide variety of centrepiece designs makes mixing and matching one of the most enjoyable parts of owning a gold pendant.
  • Gold Bracelets
    Gold bracelets are one of the most purchased types of jewellery on the market, due to their versatile and tasteful aesthetic that can accompany almost any style of outfit. The unisex and adaptable nature of gold bracelets means they are enjoyed by both men and women of all ages. Interestingly, it was ancient Chinese communities who pioneered jewellery-making techniques many thousands of years ago that led to the development of gold bracelets. The lineage of gold bracelets can also be traced back to the ancient Egyptians, who introduced the gold charm bracelet to the world.
  • Gold Necklaces
    Decorative and elaborate, gold necklaces once adorned the necks of kings and queens as symbols of great wealth and power. Draping the neckline with a strand of gold remains an international image of class and beauty, and these days gold necklaces can be enjoyed in a vast array of styles and lengths due to gold's versatility and availability.
