Where is the Jewellery made?
We are based in the Isle of Man.
What is your jewellery made from?
Our jewellery is made from traceable recycled precious metals. We have always used recycled silver & gold for our designs, supplied by a UK company using 100% recycled precious metals, fully traceable and equal in quality to un-recycled precious metals.
Does your Silver contain Nickel?
No, our Silver does not contain Nickel.
Occasionally, some people have a sensitivity/allergy to Nickel which can be found in some Sterling Silver. In addition to being 100% recycled and traceable, our Sterling Silver is certified 'Nickel Free', meaning that it is suitable for people with a sensitivity to Nickel.
Can you make a piece of jewellery for me like a picture I've seen?
Sorry, but that's not what we do. We make our jewellery and other people make their jewellery. If you like a piece that you've seen elsewhere, we suggest you reach out that maker regarding their designs. We make our own original designs.
I've lost an earring, can I buy one?
Sorry to hear that. If it is one that we still make then, yes you can. However it maybe isn't as straightforward as it might sound.
We make our earrings in pairs, this can include left & right, matching colour or shape, etc, and all of our workflows are set up to make matching pairs of earrings. To cover the admin time required to replace a single earring we can replace a single earring at 45% reduction to the price of a pair of earrings. If this is something that you would like to do, please contact us in the first instance via our contact form here.
