White gold is usually enhanced with Rhodium plating. To preserve this plating, avoid swimming in your jewellery as chlorine, in particular, can cause faster degradation. Chlorine is present in small amounts in tap water, so it is best to avoid getting your jewellery wet where possible. It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.

Said to be “a girl’s best friend”, the name derives from the ancient Greek word ‘adamas’ meaning invincible. The quality of this gem’s colour, clarity and cut are more tightly measured than for any other gemstone, and although there are various standards used across the globe, that of the Gemological Institution of America (GIA) is the most widely used.  The value of a similar carat weight of Diamonds can vary dramatically, based on their clarity and colour - and to some extent more importantly - how well the gemstone has been cut. Its very high refractive index is what gives the gem its famous sparkle; its strong lustre is described as an adamantine lustre.

All gemstones can be damaged through wear and tear. Make sure you check for loose stones or damaged claws periodically. Always take your jewellery off whenever you are doing activities that might cause damage. Remember that household cleaners and chlorine in swimming pools can damage many gems.

The gem of love, Ruby is the red member of the Corundum family and is often given as a gift to show the strength of one’s relationship. Most Rubies show purplish-red to orangey-red hues; however, the overall colour (the colour is a combination of hue, shade and saturation) can provide gem dealers with an indication of the stone’s original geographic origin. Ruby shows pleochroism, which means that the colour varies when viewing the gemstone in different directions and many can appear incredibly bright when exposed to the sun. Ruby has been a popular gemstone for centuries and has been set in many famous historic pieces of jewellery. The famous mines in Mogok, Burma were first explored as early as the 6th century AD. In Sanskrit, the Ruby was known as “ratnaraj” which stood for “the king of precious gems”, and later “ratnanayaka”; “leader of all precious stones”. Its more recent name, Ruby, is derived from the Latin word “rubers” simply meaning “red”. In the ancient world, people believed that Rubies could help them predict the future and they have been worn as talismans to protect from illness or misfortune ever since. It is said that over 95% of Rubies on the market today have been heat-treated, therefore whenever buying a Ruby it is best to assume that the gem’s colour has been enhanced. Some of the finest Rubies are from Burma, where their colour is said to be comparable to that of “pigeon blood”. Ruby is the birthstone for July and is also the anniversary gemstone for both the 15th and 40th year of marriage.

Shipping: The Glamorous World of Parcel Patience

Alright, my fellow sparkle enthusiasts, let's talk dispatch and delivery. Picture this: I’m a one-woman powerhouse, working tirelessly to bring you the finest jewellery. I aim to dispatch your glittering goodies the same day (because I'm just that efficient). But here's the kicker—being a boutique operation, my stock is as limited as my patience for non-sparkly things. Most of my treasures are shipped from my legion of talented smiths and suppliers to me on order.

UK Domestic Shipping: Fast but Fashionably Late

For my lovely UK-based customers, your sparkles will typically waltz their way to you in about 5-7 business days. Quick, but not quite instant gratification. I’m not Amazon! Think of it as joyous anticipation before the big reveal!

International Shipping: The Waiting Game

For my fabulous international friends, I need you to channel your inner zen master. Shipping times can vary wildly, anywhere from 5 to 30 business days. Why? Because customs clearance is a thing. Patience, darling. Good things (and sparkly ones) come to those who wait.

Out of Stock? Not Out of Luck!

If the piece you’ve fallen in love with is out of stock, don’t fret! It’s available for order with a lead time of 4-10 weeks, depending on which of my brilliant suppliers is crafting your new favourite accessory. Just drop me a line about your heart's desire, and I’ll do my absolute best to meet your needs.

So, there you have it. Whether you’re waiting a few days or a few weeks, remember: great things (and truly fabulous jewellery) take time. Now, who’s ready to add a bit of sparkle to their life?
