We had an interesting question on whether the butterfly will rotate since the wings are larger above. We took that into consideration in our design by placing the ear post higher than the intersection to minimize movement. We also selected a martini style setting to ensure the stud sits deep and tight without rotation. (:
Handcrafted Fine Solid Gold
We've chosen to work with 14K solid gold as it provides more durability and resistance to wear and tear, compared to 18K solid gold. While 18K gold gives a bright yellow colour, 14K gives a softer champagne-like colour. We believe these characteristics suit the preference and lifestyle of modern, multi-tasking women.
Customers who prefer 18K gold can opt for it by enquiring separately. We can make it your way. :)
Lab-Grown Diamonds & Moissanites
While natural diamonds are mined, we only use either (1) lab-grown diamonds and (2) Moissanites.
Lab-grown diamonds are 100% real diamonds; they are identical to mined diamonds in every way, except origin. I.e. same element (carbon), same properties, same structure, hardness, colour, and clarity. They are also cut with the same tools as mined diamonds. There's literally no difference!
Moissanites are precious gemstones and have very close similarities to diamonds. It is also extremely hard and can withstand daily wear. By comparison, they are harder gemstones than sapphires and emeralds and most other simulants in the market.
These two are a preferred choice of gemstones used in our designs - they are sustainable, ethical and affordable. Because these are created in the lab, colour grading, clarity and dispersion are on par with the highest grades of mined diamonds. In fact, they are graded in the same way. Read more in our FAQs.
