When I found this lovely rose cut diamond I couldn't stop staring it; I love the way it catches the light and lets it spill across the surface of the stone. The soft cuts aren't as sparkly as a brilliant cut diamond but I like that more. We carved this botanical inspired ring for my neice Lydia's 21st birthday present. The rose gold brings out the warmth from this gorgeous champagne diamond.

Is the most powerful form of alternative medicine in fact retail therapy? If so why not treat yourself with our new "Golden Purity Hoops".


Gold has been called “the master healer”. It is an excellent mineral for the purification of the physical body. Gold produces an energy that is both cooperative and receptive, allowing one to heal in ways previously unattained.
These "Golden Purity Hoops" are one inch in diameter. Each one is completely hand made in Melbourne out of solid 9ct gold.…/solid-gold-hammered-h…


Torrington Emeralds are beautiful natural Emeralds found in NSW.

During the early 1990s a small but very interesting deposit of emeralds was discovered under an unsealed road near Torrington in Northern NSW. Quite a bit of material came onto the market at the time but as there has been no production recorded for some time, rough and cut pieces are now collector items. The single well formed crystals show a unique colour banding sometimes referred to as ‘Bar Code Banding’ making them extremely attractive specimens.

We have built individual sterling settings for each emerald. They are in fact tiny sculptures.

Philip Roth, the towering novelist who explored lust, Jewish life and America, has passed away at 85.

My favourite character of his was Delphine Roux from the Human Stain.

His description of her ring is incredible: "Her one piece of jewelry, the large ring she'd placed that morning on the middle finger of her left hand, her sole decorative ornament, had been selected for the sidelight it provided on the intellectual she was, one for whom enjoying the aesthetic surface of life openly, nondefensively, with her appetite and connoisseurship undisguised, was nonetheless subsumed by a lifelong devotion to scholarly endeavor. The ring, an eighteenth-century copy of a Roman signet ring, was a man-sized ring formerly worn by a man. On the oval agate, set horizontally—which was what made the ring so masculinely chunky—was a carving of DanaĆ« receiving Zeus as a shower of gold. In Paris, four years earlier, when Delphine was twenty, she had been given the ring as a love token from the professor to whom it belonged—the one professor whom she'd been unable to resist and with whom she'd had an impassioned affair."




My photo
I like rainbows, crystals, coloured pencils, swimming, manifesting, visualising, poetry, going out for breakfast, graphic novels, air conditioning, miniature anything, clothing made from synthetic fabrics, travelling, travelling, staying in nice hotels, headphones, husbears + soft hands. I don't like people who make me feel tired.
