Our jewellery is crafted from nickel-free sterling silver, offering options for 24k gold or 18k rosegold plating.
We also incorporate stunning authentic crystals in some of our designs. The crystals we use in our designs are made in Austria, with a focus on high quality, labor and environmental standards at your suppliers’ manufacturing sites (ISO standards and audited according to SMETA).
All our materials are ethically sourced from Europe, ensuring not only the beauty but also the integrity of every piece we create.
