Solid Gold and Fine Sterling Silver FAQ
Where do you source your materials?
Wherever possible we source our gems from suppliers who we have a long term relationship with, so as to be able to best ensure ethical conditions. We have a boutique stock of gems on hand at all times, but can also source specific stones for your requirements, such as Thai Rubies, Australian Opals, or Iranian Tuquoise. All of our sterling silver is recycled.
What karats and colours of gold do you offer?
We craft in 14k and 18k yellow, white and rose gold. The price for each gold colour is the same, so you can choose based on your aesthetic preferences. If your budget is limited, we can make occasional exceptions to the karat that we work in, to be able to realise your dream piece for you.
Can you offer customisations, engravings, or pieces based on an original design I have in mind?
Yes! Each solid gold and Fine sterling silver piece is handmade to order. Therefore we can work with you to customise an existing design by changing its shape, adding or removing gems, or creating a quote for you based of a design idea you have. Just get in touch to start the process, and for a commitment-free quote.
What is the price range of your solid gold items?
We are always happy to work to a budget, while making sure not to sacrifice the craftmanship, heirloom quality, and fair wages we pay all of the artisans we work with. Prices for solid gold pieces start at around 300 Euro/500 AUD, but if you have something in mind feel free to get in touch, and we can have a conversation about the possibilities. Sterling Silver is a cost effective option, and we can work to your budget while still creating a bespoke piece.
Where are your pieces created?
Our founder Olivia handcrafts all designs in wax, which then become the prototypes for the pieces which are cast in solid gold or sterling silver in our small studio in the traditional goldsmithing district of Florence. Solid gold items are shipped form Italy or Australia (depending on the destination) at a rate of 23 Euros, with secure, insured express postage.
Help! I have a deadline!
Solid gold and custom Fine sterling silver orders are lovingly crafted over 6-8 weeks. However, if you have a pressing deadline, please email us when placing your order to let us know. We can often meet these deadlines by prioritising items that are needed for a special occasion such as a birthday or wedding, so just drop us a line.
Can you create something for me in sterling silver?
Yes! We now offer bespoke items in Sterling Silver, lovingly hand-crafted with the same high standards as our solid gold range, in our Florentine studios.
