YOUR DREAM JEWEL CAN COME TRUE!

Would you like to wear a unique piece of jewellery that cannot be found anywhere else? A piece of jewellery that looks like you?

For more than 7 years, I have been accompanying my clients in the creation of their dream jewel. After a few years as a psychologist, I trained in different jewellery schools in Europe; Florence, Paris, London have no secrets for me ;)

I will be delighted to put my know-how at your service for your custom-made jewellery projects. I make custom engagement rings and wedding rings as well as gifts for births, anniversaries, etc. All moments in life are important. Together we will try to make them unforgettable by designing a timeless piece of jewellery.

All the pieces of my existing collections can be adapted and personalised according to your taste (choice of other stones, white or pink gold, ...).

Recycle your old jewellery!

Do you have jewellery that you no longer wear? They are no longer to your taste or simply broken...

Why not turn them into a more contemporary piece of jewellery that you will enjoy wearing?

If you have a piece of gold jewellery that you want to recast, I can "recycle" it and turn it into a new creation for you. I can also recover the stones set in it and mount them on a new jewellery creation.

Transparency and benevolence are important values for me. I look forward to meeting you and creating a new story for your jewellery.

How is gold recycled?

Recycled gold comes from the recovery of old, broken jewellery or other small gold objects. To a lesser extent, it is extracted from electronic waste. Once recovered, the gold is analysed to identify whether it is pure gold or an alloy.

The gold then goes through the refining phase, which is designed to extract and separate the precious metals, especially gold, from the other metals present. Once all the processing and refining is done, you have gold that is as pure as the gold from the other side of the world, with the added bonus of quality control of the alloy! All this gold is then remelted to be reused to give it a second life. It is from this that I then make your jewellery ♡.

"The desire to please me, to offer me an elegant gift so different from all my other jewellery. A ring to slip on my finger, a bit like a testimony of love towards myself ... Selfish? No, just the need to love myself a little and to feel more alive than the disease that inhabits me. It is a delight every time I wear this ring made up of 3 rings. And then one day the desire to wear a pendant in harmony ... A precise request with echo of the listening and availability of Enora. A second piece of jewellery that fully meets my expectations and is in perfect harmony with my ring."

THE MAKING OF A JEWEL

1 Design research and prototype development

Once the idea has been discussed with the client, I propose a sketch or a 3D drawing. The basis of the work is the search for interesting shapes and lines that match your style and ideas.

The search is also based on the gemstones with which I will decorate the jewel.

2 Stone selection

The choice of stones is essential in jewellery. Their colour, quality, shape and intensity are the criteria for selection. I work with diamond dealers and gemologists based in Antwerp and Brussels.

All my suppliers source their stones in an ethical and responsible manner.

3 Alloying or remelting of old jewellery

Alloying consists of mixing solid gold (=24 carats) with copper and silver to obtain 18 carat gold (750/1000 pure gold) or 14 carat gold (585/1000 pure gold). If you wish, I can also recast old gold jewellery that you no longer like.

4 Metal shaping

Cutting, filing, texturing, grinding, folding, ... There are so many steps to the shaping of the jewel. Many tools are needed to create the shapes of the jewel's setting.

5 Soldering

This is a rather delicate step. It consists in assembling two pieces of metal together thanks to a small metal straw that is heated with a blowtorch and that will unite them forever!

6 Polishing

Before proceeding to the polishing stage, the part must first be cleaned. Emerging is an essential step in polishing. It is the most important step to have a mirror polished jewel (referring to the fact that you could see yourself in it). I coat the brushes with polishing paste which removes microns of metal to make the piece shine!

7 Setting

With the help of a microscope, the setter places the stone on the jewel's setting and fixes the stone by bringing metal over it.

This is a very delicate and meticulous step to avoid damaging the stone. Emerald is one of the most complicated stones to set because there are many inclusions (natural micro cracks) inside.

8 Finition

After the setting, it is necessary to polish once again to remove the traces of the setting file.

And of course, I inspect the jewel in every way to make sure it is perfect and ready to be handed over to the client.

THE PRECIOUS METAL

The choice of metal is an important step in the selection of your jewel. In jewellery houses like ours, 18 carat gold (75% gold in the total material) is preferred. However, it is also possible to order your jewellery in 14 carat gold (58.5% gold) or 9 carat gold (37.5% gold).

There are three main colours of gold. Yellow gold, white gold and pink gold.

Yellow gold

Yellow gold is the basic colour of mined gold. But contrary to what you might think, the yellow gold used in jewellery is never pure gold.

750/1000 (18 carat) yellow gold is a mixture of fine gold (24 carat) that is too soft to be worked, and other metals such as silver and copper that will harden the metal.

Yellow gold 750/1000 is made up of 75% 24 carat yellow gold and 25% silver and copper. Its colour is close to pure gold but the presence of other metals in its alloy makes it harder, and therefore more suitable for setting stones. Indeed, pure 24 carat gold is an extremely soft metal!

White gold

White gold 750/1000 (18 carat) is an alloy of yellow gold and several metals such as palladium and copper. In jewellery we call it "white gold" because its colour is more grey than white.

To give it its brilliant, sparkling white colour, white gold is coated with a thin layer of the rare metal rhodium.

The only drawback of white gold is that it tends to yellow over time. Over time, the rhodium layer will develop a patina, revealing a slight yellow/grey tinge. It is perfectly possible to rhodium plated your jewellery again. We recommend doing so every 5 years if necessary.

Pink gold

Pink gold 750/1000 (known as 18 carat gold) is a mixture of fine gold (known as 24 carat gold) which is too soft to be worked, and other metals such as silver and copper which will harden the alloy.

Pink gold is made of pure yellow gold, copper and silver. It is the copper that gives it its beautiful pink hue. There is also red gold. In this case, the percentage of copper in the ring is higher and the pink colour more pronounced. For our creations, we use a light pink gold.

Pink gold has the advantage that it goes very well with morganite and diamonds.

MY FAVOURITE GEMS ♡

Diamond

"Diamonds are the girls' best friends, right?"

Do we still need to introduce the diamond? This stone of unparalleled brilliance, brilliance and hardness. Did you know that the quality of a diamond is governed by four main criteria (the 4Cs)? The carat (weight of the diamond), the colour (degree of whiteness), the clarity (degree of purity), and the cut (quality of the cut).

Pearl

The freshwater cultured pearl has exceptional qualities in terms of luster. The Japanese are the pioneers in pearl culture.

Emerald

The emerald, this precious stone of a turquoise green so transparent as the Caribbean Sea has always made me dream!

The emerald naturally has inclusions, called the "emerald garden". This is what makes an emerald so beautiful and expensive. It is precisely the inclusions that make each emerald unique.

Pink sapphire

It is true that blue sapphires are the best known, but pink sapphires are beginning to make their mark in the jewellery world. It is the presence of chromium that changes the emission and absorption spectrum of the mineral, giving it its unmistakable pink colour.

Blue sapphire

This gemstone, which varies in colour from light to dark blue, is very popular in jewellery. Sapphire can also have other shades ranging from yellow to green to pink and even white.

Opal

Opal is a beautiful fine stone with an iridescent sheen. The origin of the term opal comes from the Sanskrit word upala meaning "precious stone".

THE SETTINGS

The choice of metal is an important step in the selection of your jewel. In jewellery houses like ours, 18 carat gold (75% gold in the total material) is preferred. However, it is also possible to order your jewellery in 14 carat gold (58.5% gold) or 9 carat gold (37.5% gold).

There are three main colours of gold. Yellow gold, white gold and pink gold.

Bezel setting

The bezel setting is one of the strongest types of setting, in which the stone is completely surrounded by a metal mesh.

The stone is optimally protected against impact and appears visually larger because the precious metal mirrors its brilliance.

Prong setting

The prongsetting refers to the way the stone is held on the jewel. The famous claws are actually rods surrounding the stone.

In general, a claw setting surrounds the stone with three, four or six claws. Unlike the closed setting, the claw setting allows the stone to be almost completely exposed. It is a setting often used for solitaires.

Grain setting

The grain setting consists of juxtaposing several small stones and fixing them with micro claws resembling small pearls.

These are small metal shavings that the setter will raise with his stilt and then transform into micro-beads around the stone to fix it.
