Nicky has a great belief in the power of the gemstones which adorn the jewellery.  Natural stones, through the energy they hold and channel to the wearer, have been used for centuries for healing and can enhance and uplift in more ways than the simple pleasure of wearing a beautiful piece.

Every stone has been hand picked to create unique jewellery to catch the light and the eye.  The nature of semi-precious stones means that the colour and composition of each stone varies and no two pieces will ever be the same, resulting in complete individuality.

Some of the stones used are simulants – gemstones created by humans in a laboratory.  These stones mimic the structure of natural stones. Cubic zirconias (diamond like simulants,) which are also lab created, feature too and come in array of colours.  Both natural and simulant stones will be detailed in the jewellery descriptions.

Please note that the stones used in the jewellery may differ slightly in colour between their photograph and the actual piece as well as the examples given in the gemstone list below.
