What metals do you use?
Our products are cast from the best quality Sterling Silver and Brass.
What are the plating options?
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.
How can i tell if my product is made from Sterling Silver?
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).

Where do the diamonds come from?
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).
Can I have my product engraved?
Alex Orso will be introducing an Engraving Service in Autumn 2017. This will be available for a selected range of Rhodium plated products. Whilst you can still get your product engraved elsewhere, please note that the core metal (Silver or Brass) will be seen if you engrave a Gold or Ruthenium plated product. This is why we only recommend engraving for Sterling Silver products with Rhodium plating.
