Precious Metal Information

Precious Metal Colours

Above are examples of the precious metals we work with most frequently. We also can work with customers' own jewellery in other metals such as 22ct gold and 14ct gold which is more commonly used internationally.  We have even been known to work with different alloys for a specific purpose, for example adding 9ct gold to 22ct to build up durability. Furthermore, we have in the past mixed different colours of customers' gold which can give an unpredictable final colour making it completely unique.

We frequently find ourselves sought out by people with sentimental jewellery to incorporate into a commission. Where other companies may shy away from working with customers' own jewellery, we pride ourselves in seeing the opportunity to create something bespoke and meaningful with their own metal.

Our goldsmiths are experts at working with older or antique jewellery and the challenges this brings, and love to see the rich history of different pieces our customers bring to us. Read more about reusing precious metal.
