During our travels, collecting extraordinary pieces of traditional Indian jewellry, we learned to listen to the heart. Parallel to that thorough art historical reference and research is applied. Over the years all this added up to an experienced and trained ‘eye’ for quality. Moreover, we consider it our duty, and essential in a growing company, to always continue to develop and improve our knowledge and expertise. Therefor, in 2012 we have decided to extend our research methods with complete and factual scientific review by commissioning an independent precious metal and gemmological research report. We found in Dr J.C. Zwaan of The Netherlands Gemological Laboratory Leiden, a dedicated, highly experienced and qualified partner. Today we aim that every item in our collection is accompanied by a full art historical ánd independent gemological scientific report, in so doing adding up to the understanding and appreciation of each piece for both the current and future owner.
