Gold, historically revered as a symbol of the divine, captivates with its rich yellow hue, reflecting the power of the sun. Our plated jewelry, marrying charm with accessibility, enhancing 925 sterling silver with a 22k gold plating at 1 micron thickness. Though less durable than our vermeil pieces, it's ideal for occasional wear or items less likely to be exposed to water, like massive earrings or pendants. For daily wear, we suggest opting for vermeil or brass.
Appreciating the gold of pigmented yellow, our jewels are plated in 22k gold (pigmented, rich tones). While 22k gold vermeil isn't solid gold, it offers enduring quality when handled with care. The longevity of the plating depends on usage, adherence to care instructions, climate, skin type, and lifestyle. To enhance plating durability, follow care guidelines: remove before sleep, water exposure, chores, and sports, store in a sealed container, and avoid high humidity areas. If you want a golden piece that does not fade in colour, we recommend you consider our brass jewelry.

Ankh, the Egyptian Cross of Life was originally an Egyptian hieroglyph representing the word “life”. It served as an amulet in everyday life, but also as an offering to the dead to accompany them to pass through the afterlife. Ankh represents the mystical connection which unites two opposites towards its center to allow them to remain united. It refers to the knot of Isis, or the act of joining.

Male-female Union. Among the Egyptians, Ankh was the symbol of life or immortality, marked by certain rituals associated with death. As a symbol of balance between opposing forces, Ankh evokes the junction of the feminine and the masculine, union, fertility and the creation of life. In this sense, Ankh is not only a symbol of life, but also of future life and immortality. Another theory asserts that the T of the lower part of the cross would be associated with the male organs, while the upper part of the cross would evoke the uterus of the woman, symbolizing the unity of the feminine and the masculine, the reproduction and the cycle of life.

Sky-earth Union. Ankh is formed, from the top, by a slender circle symbolizing the celestial world which has neither beginning nor end. Evoking the spirit of Ra, the Sun God, the circle also serves as a handle for the Gods who hold the key, while the T in the lower part can also be planted into the Earth. Thus, Ankh is associated with the sun coming to the horizon and the divine union of heaven and earth.

Afterlife Key. Its resemblance to a key suggests that Ankh would provide the key to the gates of the afterlife and immortality. Ankh would thus penetrate the hidden meaning of eternity. The cross was once placed on the lips of dead kings, symbolizing that death does not signify the end, but simply the transition to eternal life.
