Materials and processes

As a master jeweller I work with all precious metals. I work entirely by hand in Sterling silver, all carats of gold and also platinum. Using traditional hand tools only, manipulating and texturing the metal with flame and cold working processes adding depth of decoration further enhanced by patinating and oxidising.

We hand select only the finest lapidary materials sourced from an extensive network for the jewellery designs. It is our priority to source non-conflict diamonds, gold and silver.*

I only sell pieces that meet my own strict quality standard and have created and registered my own unique hallmark along with my jewellery meeting the hallmarking requirements with Goldsmith’s Hall, London.

* Conflict(Blood) Diamonds and  conflict materials:

GemstonesThe Kimberley Process (KP) is a joint government, industry and civil society initiative to stem the flow of conflict Diamonds-rough Diamonds used by rebel movements to finance wars against legitimate governments. The trade in these illicit stones has fuelled decades of devastating conflicts in countries such as Angola, Cote d’Ivoire, the Democratic republic of the Congo and Sierre Leone. The Kimberley Process certification scheme (KPCS) imposes extensive requirements on it’s members to enable them to certify shipments of rough Diamonds as “conflict-free”. As of December 2009, the KP has 49 members, representing 75 countries, with the European community and it’s member states as an  individual participant.

Whenever possible new bullion that is used is sourced from suppliers of non-conflict Gold and Silver.

Thus you can be assured that NO conflict Diamonds, Gold or Silver are used in any of my jewellery.

(The only exception is when we re-cycle older pieces of customer’s jewellery where the source of that particular Gold or Silver is unknown).
