We are so excited to launch an extension of our BORN range. You can now order your birthstone with genuine natural stones and a solid 9k gold chain and charm.
The difference between the two pieces is our original born design features glass stones and a gold filled chain and charm. While long wearing, any plated piece is subject to wear and tear and depending on your skin composition and what time of perfumes and moisturisers you wear, you may have noticed your necklace start to tarnish over time.
You can now purchase your birthstone as a forever piece, a piece that will wear just like any other gold piece of jewellery. With a simple cable chain 40 or 45cm chain, a tiny charm holds your 2.5-3mm stone. We have priced each piece to reflect the market value of each stone with diamonds and sapphires being at the higher end of the price point.
