Rock the Casbah with our hot Winter collection

Step into the sultry world of our hot and spicy Casbah Collection. Warm saffron orange and mace pink sapphires mix with chilli red spinels and coriander leaf green tourmaline gems nestle in rich tumeric yellow 18ct Vermeil along side Kohl black and smouldering silver designs. All handcrafted to seduce your senses.

Lattice-inspired Lariats, chokers and earrings. Embellished bracelets and regal rings bejewelled with an array of spicy gemstones.

We loved the idea of using different colours and textures to emphasise the lattice effect and depth. We originally experimented with gold leaf inlaid within the segments, however we soon discovered that it did not adhere properly and although it looked really effective, it remained sticky and impermanent. So then we looked into gold plating which is something I have always avoided as I have never wanted to sell jewellery which would not last longterm. However by plating with solid 18ct yellow gold onto Sterling Silver by hand with a fine stylus attached to our electro plating machine, means that we can be assured that the gold will not get wear and tear so you can be assured of quality of the finish for many years. The technical term for gold plating onto silver is Vermeil, as it is called gold plate when onto a base metal surface.
