This heart is not for your sweet heart, for the faint of heart, or for those heart to hearts.

It is for the the heartbreakers.

This collection was designed not as a token of love. It is a shield; a fortress. Guard your heart and be fearless.

An 18k rose gold collection - designed and handmade by 18Karat.

Hot Off the Polishing Wheel - The Dichotomy Diamond Ring

2014 feels like it's going to be a big year for 18Karat - we are excited about the new collections to be launched in the next few weeks as well as some incredible events and exhibitions coming in the next few months. Our collective energy is high - despite the record low thermostat - and that sense of adventure is bound to be reflected in our jewellery. Without further ado  - the Diamond Dichotomy Ring.

This ring is the second (possibly third) incarnation of design based on contrast and aesthetic opposition - a diamond, off-set and within a scalloping form, is ballanced by a perfectly matching row of top-quality emeralds. The diamond set in 18k white gold and the emeralds in yellow. It is also hard to see in the above photo, but we drilled a tube into the profile of the ring and set diamonds on either side. It is truly a stunning piece.
