Our Materials

We work with high-quality materials to ensure your jewellery pieces are made for everyday wear, but will last a lifetime.

This is why our pieces are always solid gold, and not just gold-plated.

Precious Metals

La Grotta Collective jewellery pieces always use 18k or 14k solid gold.

What’s the difference between solid gold vs gold-plated or gold vermeil?

Solid gold jewellery has 100x more gold alloy than gold-plated jewellery, which means it lasts longer and stands up to wear and tear better.

Solid gold jewellery should not tarnish or discolour with proper care.

Wearers who are sensitive to certain metals can also wear solid gold jewellery without worries of an allergic reaction. 


Even something as durable as solid gold deserves some love. To maintain its shine, wipe gently with a soft cloth.


Our pearls are sourced from Hong Kong, the home of pearls.

Our founder works closely with the suppliers to ensure the pearls are of the highest quality and lustre.

We use cultured freshwater pearls from oysters and freshwater mussels that we carefully select for our pieces.

Pearls are delicate in nature so don't forget to treat them with love.


Make sure pearls are the last thing you put on before going out and the first thing you take off when you come home.

Avoid direct contact with chemicals found in perfume or other cosmetics.

Clean gently with a damp soft cloth.
