Shop with Confidence
pearl jewellery made in our workshops To guarantee quality all jewellery is made in our West Wales workshops using traditional skills, materials and genuine cultured pearls.

Top grade pearls are backed by a Certificate of Authenticity, signed and stamped by a specialist UK pearl graduate of the Gemological Institute of America (London) - the world's foremost authority.

Making our necklaces - a 3 minute how we make our necklaces
It takes a bit longer and costs a little more, but we think the end result is worth it - and so do our customers.
