45 mm Flower Bud Cluster Drop Earrings with Opals and Briolette Diamonds
22k gold dwt .25
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.
I only use high-quality natural diamonds within the collection, as they brilliantly complement 22k gold with their unique sparkle. The natural precious stones are estimated to be 1 to 3.5 billion years old, contributing to their rarity and beauty.
Predominantly mined in Australia, opals are associated with love, passion, and eroticism, and
come in three distinct varieties: black, boulder, and white. I especially love the dance of fire within an opal, a shifting pattern that renders no two alike.
