If our atelier capacity allows it, we do work with personal gold, or gold recycling. Some of our designs can be made with your own, old gold that you have laying around or pieces that you have inherited and that are of emontional value to you. When we have evaluated the 585 or 750 gold on it's characteristics, we can melt it down and cast it into a new piece of workable gold that we will then transfor to a wearable piece of wire or sheet, using the rolling mill amongst other tools. Feel free to contact us for more information and availablity.
Some of our designs are made or can be made in 925. silver. Silver is a metal which requires little to no care when worn regularly. However, if the jewelry hasn’t been worn for a longer period of time, the material will oxidize and gets its famous dark layer. If you want to bring the material back to it’s original bright state, you can polish your piece of jewelry with our cleaning cloth or home polish kit. If you don’t wear your jewelry for a longer period of time, store your jewelry in an air tight box.

Is officially not to be labeled as gold but is a very beautiful alternative for the pricier 14k gold pieces – especially the heavier ones. It lasts a lifetime, just as 14k gold, but may need to be cleaned with a polishing cloth every now and then to keep it’s original tone and shine. Only available in a yellow tone.
58.5% pure gold, 41.5% other materials such as silver and copper
Is officially to be called gold, does not tarnish and our 14k pieces can be made in two tones of yellow gold, white- and rose gold. 14k gold is the hardest alloy of all karat options. Lasts a lifetime, perfect to pass on to next generations.
FYI: 18 karat can also be requested for most of our designs.

We always recommend our clients to write down their ringsizes in our ringside guide. So if your partner owns one, you might want to check that one first ;)
The ringsizes of each hand may very likely differ, so keep that in mind on your quest to the perfect ringsize. In most cases, the dominant hand, is slightly bigger (around 1/4 to 1/2 of a size) - unfortunately, this is not a given fact.
The best way to measure a ringsize is to use a caliper and measure the INSIDE of the ring that fits well, from the left to the right side. Make sure the ring is round and worn on the hand that the ring you are gifting, will be worn at.
In case you don't have a caliper, you can use a ruler, but please be aware this is a very precise task. Even half a millimeter could make a difference in size. Again, you want to measure the INSIDE of the ring. You read the amount of millimeters from the left inside of the ring, to the right. FYI: this amount of millimeters is the size the we work with in our webshop (the Dutch ringsize). So if you measure 17 mm, you can order size 17.
As for an engagement ring:
Most engagement rings are worn on the left hand. However, many choose to (also) wear the wedding ring on the left hand, as "the ancient believed that the fourth finger of the left hand had a vein that ran directly to the heart and so chose to wear the ring as a symbol of love on this finger."
When the engagement and wedding ring are not to be worn together, we would recommend to measure the right ringfinger for the engagement ring. This way, the size of the engagement ring does not have to be changed later on.
Luckily, we design many engagement & wedding rings that can be perfectly combined on one finger, and thus can both be worn on the left hand.
