What is gold plating and vermeil?
Gold plate means that the jewellery is sterling silver coated in gold. This looks great but it doesn’t last forever, the plating will eventually wear off and the piece will become silver.
We have leveled up and now offer 18 karat vermeil as opposed to gold plating!
Vemeil is a term used for jewelry made of sterling silver and coated with gold. The word “vermeil” comes from French and is pronounced “ver-may.” The term “vermeil” is legally regulated and to qualify, a piece of jewelry must meet certain criteria. It's base must be sterling silver, it must be plated in gold of at least 10 karats, and the gold plating must have a thickness of at least 2.5 microns. We only offer 18K, vermeil and plate 4 microns as standard. We will vermeil anything for an additional $200 and guarantee it will last longer than our previous gold plating and is a higher quality finish.
Can I wear my jewellery in water?
All jewellery can be worn all the time and Aussie opals are colorfast, but I suggest taking them off when gardening, rock climbing or having an episode and punching a wall.
Can you do engraving?
Yes! We do engraving on custom pieces only. It is an additional $100 and there is a variety of fonts you can choose from. Perfect for a sentimental gift. Please allow a few extra days for this process.
What's the difference between lab grown and natural stones?
Lab stones are amazing! They have a lighter carbon footprint, are more ethical, no mining is involved, they are flawless and cost less. It’s a great choice for a lot of reasons. I do personally love an inclusion in a natural stone which you don’t get in labs – it gives the stone character and personality.
Where do you source all your jewels?
I’ve spent 7 years finding amazing suppliers. All my opals come directly from the miners Tayo and Max in Mintabie, South Australia. Most of my diamonds come from Vital Diamonds in Melbourne and my coloured stones come from suppliers I’ve met overseas. I went to the Bangkok Gem Tradeshow a few years ago and have ethical, reliable contacts from there still.
Do you make men's line?
I feel all jewellery can be worn by anyone so I don’t have a specific men’s or woman’s line. I do make/have lots of more masculine pieces which can be ordered as custom or in the ring section of the website.
Do you ship worldwide?
Yes, and orders over $200 AUD are free express post! Orders under $200 are $10 for Australia or $25 for international.
How long does shipping take?
Domestic shipping takes between 2-5 days (on average). I use Auspost Express, International shipping is though DHL express and takes 5-7 working days to most countries. We will send tracking details via email when we despatch your order.
If you are ordering a silver piece in one of our standard sizes we will most likely have your piece in stock and will dispatch within 48 hours! If you want your new baby in gold or need a custom size we will most likely need to make it especially for you. This can take between 2-4 weeks plus postage time. Hit me up if you're in a hurry though and I'll try work some magic for you.
If its a One Off Beauties piece it can be posted within 48 hours as long as you don’t need it to be resized. The resizing process time varies depending on how drastic the size has to increased or decreased.
