DISCOVER YOUR PERFECT STONE

This is where the fun begins. The hunt!

Finding your ideal stone for your future heirloom piece is a passion of ours.

We especially love working with Australian stones (Sapphires, Australian Diamonds and Zircon) but we work with a network of both Australian and International Diamond and Gemstone suppliers that provide the highest quality stones. With time, patience and clear direction we can almost source any type of Gemstone for you! 

You can view our collection of rings to explore Gemstone options.

FIND YOUR IDEAL DESIGN

Now that your stone has been chosen, we work on the finer details of your design. Your piece begins to take life!

Even in what appears to be a simple design, the layers of intention and meaning can be subtly infused so that your bespoke piece feels extra special to you.

In this stage, we offer guidance to ensure that your vision is a combination of beauty and durability. To ensure that is lasts generations on hands to follow.

 

WE DO OUR THING...

Production begins.

The casting, the soldering. The stone setting. And the polishing. The Alchemy. All done right here in Brisbane Australia.

The Valuation appointment (if chosen) and final packaging occurs in our studio before… we officially hand it over (or send it) to you!

... tHEN YOU DO YOURS!

Whether it be a gift to yourself or to that special person in your life, this is your moment to enjoy.

Sizing

We encourage you to visit your local Jeweller and have your fingers professionally sized. Remember that all of your fingers will vary between sizes and your dominant hand will be larger than the other (so have the finger you intend to wear your ring on sized). 

As ring sizes are not universal and there may be slight variances between our sizing and other brands, please also ask for the internal measurement in mm.

You can order our ring sizer for $5 HERE

Or explore our SIZING GUIDE HERE (which includes a link to the International Ring Size Conversion Chart that we refer to). 

Yes! We have additional tips and tricks HERE If you need extra assistance, we are so happy to help. Email [email protected]

Rest assured, most of our rings can be resized.

The best way to move forward is to have your finger professionally sized by a jeweller and then contact us to establish the next step / receive further instructions for returning your beautiful ring.

If the resize is uncomplicated, generally expect a 1-2 week turn around (plus shipping times).
