Gold casting Gold casting

All our gold is cast from recycled 18k. This means that heirloom jewelry is melted down to its original purity. From there we create 18k beads that can be shaped into the architecture of any custom design. It’s a circular process we’re proud to partake in to ensure the sustainability of our jewelry.
