given the price you pay for fine jewelry, it should last forever. this is why we always use precious metals such as solid gold and silver to fabricate our jewelry, and never plated or base metals such as brass or nickel silver.
wouldn't you like to know if your gemstone has been irradiated or dyed? you should know what kind of treatments your gemstones have been through. this is why we disclose the treatments of our gemstones, and prefer to use non-treated gemstones when creating our jewelry.
we always use conflict-free diamonds, and have the proper documentation to back it up. We use 100% recycled metals when possible, and will reuse the metal you bring us to create your design.
