Focus on... Decadorn

Posted on November 02 2015

We take great pride in sourcing brands with a story and passing that on in-store (we know our stuff and love to talk) so we decided to feature a 'focus on...' series, introducing you to the people, inspirations and detail behind some our best selling brands and why we just love them so.

 Decadorn

The story

Founder Helen Bailey discovered a niche in the market for unique jewellery pieces at an affordable price and so launched Decadorn, a London based jewellery brand which uses semi-precious stones left in their natural state.

The detail

Decadorn use 9k and 14k dipped gold for their pendants, chains and band rings. The crystals are sourced from Brazil.  

Decadorn dictionary

Drusy - "Drusy" refers to the tiny crystal which is formed within or on another stone in a large number. When the ground water that carries dissolved silica is forced to to get filled into a porous area of rock, rapid cooling occurs and it causes the formation of minute small sparkling quartz crystals in tiny cavities. This results in a delicate, shimmering sparkle.

 Tumbled - This process forms a rounded and highly polished stone which are super comfortable to hold.

 Geode - Plain rock on the outside, beautiful part hollow inside, the geode stones are then sliced and polished which leaves a crystalline edge around the inside of the pendant.

 Slice - The stone is sliced and hand polished leaving the natural form of the stone at the tip of the pendant and showcasing the beautiful layers of the stone.

 Stalactites - Formed when a single drop of mineral rich water falls from the ceiling of a cave, leaving behind a tiny ring shaped calcium deposit. With each subsequent drop, tiny mineralised rings build on top of one another to eventually form an icicle-like column of crystals.

Our favourites ? - The statement rings. Hand carved from a single piece of crystal, no two are ever the same.
