Dainty pair of ear jackets that have a classic jewellery vibe combined with the last fashion-forward trend. Screw fastened for security, they are comfy to wear every day, for every occasion.
Pearl is arguably the most desired of the organic gemstones. It is amazing to think how nature can turn an unwanted grain of sand into one of the most gorgeous gems in the world.
In medieval times gold was considered good for your health, following the belief that something so beautiful and rare had to be good for you. I read recently that over 98% of all of the gold ever mined on our planet is believed to still be in circulation today. As gold effectively acts as a currency and can easily be melted down and converted to cash, this is the main reason why there is so little heritage jewellery that has survived the centuries. It’s not that gold is not durable; it is just the case that very few pieces have survived the various depressions and recessions. Once gold pieces are converted to cash they are normally melted, sold as bullion and then eventually resold to jewellers to manufacture back into jewellery. There is every chance that somebody reading this is wearing an item of gold jewellery, from which a portion of the metal in the piece was once worn by royalty.
