The quality in design.
Fine jewellery is a term used to describe jewellery made out of precious metals, such as gold, platinum, silver, rhodium or palladium. These metals are unique as they are highly durable and resistant to oxidation and corrosion, which results in their higher value.
The key difference between fine jewellery and fashion jewellery is the metal hallmark. If a piece of jewellery does not use a precious metal, it isn’t fine jewellery. This means that even if a piece has the most beautiful diamond or pearl but is set in brass, it would not be deemed fine jewellery.
Modern jewellery designers have implemented new materials into fine jewellery today to make pieces more sustainable.
Lab-grown gemstones, simulated gemstones and even wood have all been integrated while maintaining the same fine jewellery processes and techniques to create beautiful, lasting pieces.
There’s a common myth that lab-grown gemstones are of lower quality than natural gems but this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Lab-grown gems have identical chemical structure and composition to natural gemstones, with the same hardness and brilliance. Their clarity can also be guaranteed, unlike natural gems. Many jewellery makers are choosing Lab-grown or created gemstones over natural ones to reduce the negative impact of mining and create fine jewellery that is both environmentally and ethically conscious.
Fine jewellery is sure to stand the test of time. And when we design a necklace or a pair of earrings, we make sure that every stage of the process honours the tradition of fine jewellery, from the design studio to your dressing room table.
