Why 22k gold?
The use of 22k gold brings magnificent luxury to every piece in my collection. I love the way the metal responds to my tools and how I can carve and shape it to my will. The rich color also enhances the diamonds, vibrant stones, and exquisite pearls. Though more expensive to work with than other metals, 22k gold elevates each of my designs to heirloom quality. Each creation is handmade with the most extreme care by me and a team of master jewelry artisans.
What does DWT mean?
Shorthand for pennyweight, DWT is used to measure precious metal. One ounce of gold is roughly equivalent to 18.2 pennyweights (DWT) and therefore a piece cast in 22k gold is heavier than one cast in 14k gold. For example, my Emerald Flower Branch Bracelet with Bee has a DWT of 23.63 which is approximately 1⅓ ounces of gold.
Across cultures, emeralds are recognized for their multitude of qualities. Ancient Egyptians believed emeralds symbolized fertility and rebirth. Greek mythology ties the stone to the goddess of love and beauty. And in Chinese and Irish cultures, emeralds are said to bring luck. I most gravitate to the blueish green Colombian Emeralds, calling to mind the sea and all the gem’s positive emotional energy.
