Our products are cast from the best quality Sterling Silver and Brass.
The 22 karat Gold plating is applied over a Palladium barrier to increase its durability. We use the more expensive Rhodium plating because it is more robust and hardwearing than silver. The Ruthenium plating is applied over a Gold flash to increase its resistance to wear and tear.
Our Sterling Silver products can be identified by the discrete Goldsmiths' Company hallmarks. This includes a Sterling Silver 925 Stamp to confirm the purity of the metal (92.5% weight of silver and 7.5% copper).

Yes. The collection has been designed for everyday wear and will begin to reflect your lifestyle. The colour of your product can change over time depending on your skin's pH. Scuffs and marks can also appear, this is to be expected, and will further enhance the character of your product.
A soft polishing cloth is included with all Alex Orso products. Avoid contact with any detergents or household cleaning products and avoid rubbing the product with any abrasive materials. We advise that you do not wear your product in salt water.
All Alex Orso products are cast and plated (see plating options above) before the High Polish or Brushed Satin finishes are applied by hand. All our stone products are cut, shaped and finished by hand from the best quality natural stone.
The Alex Orso collection is made in the UK.
Our South African diamonds are sourced through suppliers who comply with The Kimberley Process (which prevents ‘conflict diamonds’ entering the mainstream market) and the World Diamond Council System of Warranties (which tracks diamonds through the supply chain). Alex Orso is in the process of moving all our collection to synthetic diamonds.
An engraving service is available for a limited number of products. Products where the service is available will be highlighted on the product page. Please note that the core metal (Silver or Brass) may be seen if you engrave a Gold or Ruthenium plated product.
