You are unique and your jewellery should be too. Having your piece created by a master jeweller will also ensure that you have access to follow up care for your special piece.

Where are your stones from?
Provenance of coloured gemstones depends largely on the type of stone. Our sapphires are sourced predominantly from Sri Lanka & Madagascar, our beryl's (aquamarine, morganite, emerald) from South America and rubies from Mozambique and Myanmar.
The gemstones we source are bought from only legitimate & trusted sources, are conflict-free and not sold to fund conflict.
Many stones come pre-certified by gemologist laboratories around the world. Smaller stones are not always certified but we are happy to provide additional certification if required.
The laboratories that we work most closely with are:
GRS GemResearch Swisslab http://gemresearch.ch/
Lotus Gemology Bangkok https://lotusgemology.com/
Bellerophon Gemlab Bangkok https://www.gemlabanalysis.com/
Tokyo Gemlab http://www.tokyogemlab.co.th/aboutus.php
CGJ Sri Lanka http://www.cgjlk.com/
We source our diamonds from the major global cutting centres of Antwerp, Israel & Mumbai. Rough originates from Africa, Russia, Canada and Australia. We only source from reputable houses that are signatories to the Kimberley Process as well as many other global initiatives that ensure ethical practices in the diamond industry.
The diamonds we purchase are bought from legitimate & trusted sources, conflict-free mines and sources not involved in funding conflict.
The manufacturers that we use all trace their diamonds from rough to sale and are committed to building a sustainable industry that benefits all participants - as are we.
Some of the initiatives that our suppliers are signatory to are as follows:
