Welcome to Fifth Heaven Designs!
We're an independent handmade jewellery studio based in sunny Brisbane, but we sell all over the world -- it's an amazing feeling knowing that that our jewellery is worn all over the globe! We've always loved making things, whether that be crochet, corsetry or Viking knitting, so we took to metalsmithing like a duck to water. There's something very satisfying about forging metal, and watching it take shape.
Several years ago, we started out working with a little butane blowtorch in a tiny tin shed - not so pleasant during the hot Queensland summers! - before expanding into a new solar powered workshop.
At present we work with 14K gold filled wire, sterling silver & solid 14K gold. We have a wide array of gemstones, from ethereal natural moonstones to vibrant lab grown sapphires, in a range of different sizes and cuts. We specialise in handmade alternative engagement rings and mixed metal (sterling silver & 14K gold) charm rings.
Our silver and gold are ethically sourced, mainly recycled, and eco-friendly. Our workshop is solar powered. We use a range of synthetic (lab grown) stones as we can be certain where they came from. We do not deal in conflict diamonds, and do our best to avoid stones such as natural emeralds if there is doubt as to how ethically they were sourced.
With lower-value stones it can be difficult to prove that they were ethically handled every step of the way (from the mining, to the sale of rough, to the cutting into finished shapes), as it is extremely rare to have a certificate following an inexpensive stone from start to finish, so we make sure only to source our gemstones from trusted suppliers.
If there's something you're interested in but can't find in our store, do get in touch as we'd be delighted to work with you. If you're interested in wholesale enquiries, please contact us and we'll send you our catalogue.
