All jewelry is made of high-quality jewelry alloy based on brass “brass”, the recipe of which the designers borrowed from the masters of the Victorian era. This alloy looks like gold. Products are made from it, which are subsequently plated with gold three times by the galvanic method, after which they are varnished in a special furnace. Thanks to multiple coatings, the alloy is strong and durable, and the absence of nickel in the composition is hypoallergenic.
Natural semiprecious stones – topazes, garnets, amethysts, turquoise, agates, as well as pearls, corals and ebony, which are perfectly combined with Swarovski crystals and beads, harmoniously encrusted in this unique alloy. Every piece of jewelry is handmade.
