Collaborating with a jeweller on the design and creation can be a rewarding process. It is a unique opportunity to create a truly one-of-a-kind masterpiece that matches your style, preferences and budget.

The Perfect Metal for Your Gift

An occasionally overlooked aspect of choosing jewellery is how the metal complements your skin tone. Here's a quick guide:

  • Gold and Rose Gold naturally enhance the warmth of sun-kissed skin, complementing its natural radiance for a sophisticated, bold look.
  • Silver or White Gold suits the cool undertones of softer skin, offering a modern, luminous look.
  • Lucky to have a neutral undertone? Platinum, stainless steel, silver and gold all pair beautifully, giving you the freedom to explore various options without worrying about clashing with your natural skin tones.

Finding the Perfect Match

 A carat rating tells you exactly the percentage of pure gold in a piece of gold jewellery. The higher the carat, the purer gold there is. However, navigating the different carat options can be confusing. Here's a breakdown: 

  • For Active Lifestyles 

Lower-carat gold is an excellent choice for those who lead busy, active lifestyles looking for rings, bracelets, necklaces and everyday jewellery, as they are more resistant to scratches and dents. 

  • Luxurious Living 

Opting for 18ct (75% gold) is ideal for those who prefer a more opulent and iconic gold finish. While it provides a luxurious appearance, it requires careful handling to preserve its quality. 

  • Sensitive Skin 

Choosing a higher carat gold, like 18ct (75% gold), is a hypoallergenic metal option for those with sensitive skin. These purer forms are less likely to trigger allergic reactions.

Making the Right Choice

For the best finish and gold clarity that stays within budget, we recommend higher-carat gold, which balances purity, durability and cost, making it a popular choice for everyday wear. However, the right type of gold for your loved ones should align with their lifestyle, aesthetic preferences, and your budget.
