Material guide

One of the most important things you can do as a brand is just give your customer the facts, and that mantra is at the heart of longvé. We believe that honesty sits at the heart of a lifelong relationship.

Diamonds and gemstones

Diamonds are one of the hardest natural substances found on earth. Our high-quality Top Wesselton/Wesselton diamonds, within GH color grade and range SI 1-2 clarity, are responsibly sourced from our suppliers who follow socially responsible practices, compliant with the Kimberley Process.

Lab grown diamonds are physically and chemically identical to mined. Lab-grown diamonds are created using cutting-edge technology that replicates natural growing conditions in a lab. This results in diamonds that are chemically and physically identical to the traditional mined diamonds. Not even an expert gemologist is able to tell a lab-grown diamond apart from a mined one. The only difference between a mined and a made diamond is the origin.

As well as with our diamonds, we take pride in sourcing natural sapphires ethically, from a trusted supplier, focused on leaving a smaller footprint.




Recycled gold

We only use 100% recycled gold, to reduce our impact on the planet. Not only do we not have to mine new resources, but recycling also lowers the carbon footprint of each piece of jewellery. By melting pre-loved pieces, you can easily reshape gold without losing its quality. In fact, jewellery is one of the only products that can be completely recycled.

14 karat solid gold is an active lifestyle's best friend. It scratches less and doesn't bend as easily as 18k. All of our 14k gold pieces are stamped with the industry standard “14K” or “585”.We know that businesses can always do more, and the concept of responsibility is a journey without end. It’s been a voyage of discovery so far, and we’re all excited to keep learning as a team and sharing our findings with you.
