What's The Benefit Of Handmade Jewellery
The beauty of handmade jewellery is in the way it feels in your hand. Unlike mass produced cast jewellery, a handmade piece has a beautiful weight. Each piece is individually crafted to fit the diamonds and precious gems the setting will hold. The craftsmanship can be seen in the delicate saw cuts of the hand pierced coronets, the soldering of settings to bands and the care taken to make sure the balance of the piece is perfect. Another benefit is that the piece will wear better and last longer. In the case of an engagement ring which is worn daily you wanted to hopefully last a lifetime.
Mass produced jewellery is generally light, the cast settings porous and susceptible to wear and damage more easily than the strength you get in a hand crafted jewel. Often the claw and setting are manipulated to fit the stone- claws pulled back to accommodate a stone that may to too large or pushed in if its too small.
Imp create the majority of our diamond and colored stone jewels in house and by hand. Each piece is an individual work of art. Whether it's a engagement ring, a special occasion piece or something we have created using a family treasure, each creation is unique.
