  • RHODIUM PLATING

    Rhodium is a special and rare metal within the platinum family of metals which we use to plate many of our accessories and jewellery.  It is more expensive than gold on the precious metal market and it started to be used in silverware and jewellery making in the early 1900's as it created a beautiful, tarnish resistant finish.  It's colour tone is a slightly darker, giving a more antique effect than silver, making it perfect for accessories designed with vintage influences.

    MOTHER OF PEARL

    This is the common name for "Nacre" which coats the inside of the oyster shell.  Strong and irridescent it has a long history of decorative use as inlays as far back as 2600BC in Mesopotamia and China.  It is a symbolic stone of good fortune being linked to prosperity which is why it was given as a good luck token over the centuries.
