Gold, Recycling, & Heirlooms
Gold is a magnificent metal and something we absolutely love working with. Not only is it durable, but its colour is both spectacular and timeless - never rusting or tarnishing in any way. It is also a reusable commodity which can be melted down and reused multiple times. All our gold treasures are handcrafted using yellow, rose, and white gold in either 9ct, 14ct or 18ct.
If you have solid gold jewellery that you would like to recycle in order to create something brand new, you can bring it into our studio where it will be weighed to establish the value. We do not design new pieces with the actual gold that you bring in, as it may contain other alloys that we cannot work with. We do, however, send it off for refining and provide you with credit for the value, based on the gold price on the day. Please note that there is a shrinkage and refining fee involved in this process, so 20% will be subtracted from the final value to accommodate for this.
Perhaps you have inherited a precious heirloom that does not necessarily suit your personal aesthetic, but you adore and covet the stones incorporated in the piece. We love the idea of upcycling your diamonds or gemstones, and would like to encourage you to bring us your heirlooms that you may no longer wear so we can custom design something new. Fine stones are our speciality. And we can reset them into a new, unique treasure that suits your style while retaining the sentiment of the original jewel.
Please note that we do not purchase any diamonds or gemstones from customers.
