Welcome to Karoo Jewellery!
Jewellery featured here is primarily designed and manufactured locally, in Ottawa, Ontario. Canada's beautiful capital city! All processes take place in house. This includes developing the concept into visual designs, then prototyping models, casting, setting of gemstones and finally, polishing. Some of the featured pieces are produced in collaboration with other local artists and craftspeople from Canada and the United States, with the aim of keeping everything local to North America.
The top priority and initiative of Karoo Jewellery is to provide affordable, hand crafted, high quality, expertly designed and created jewellery, all while keeping it local and keeping the material costs low. This is why I have chosen to primarily make use of a tarnish resistant sterling silver which is still 92.5% pure silver (the same as traditional sterling silver, but without the traditional oxidation or tarnishing). This is a durable blend which is a proprietary mixture of alloys.
I hope that you find a beautiful accessory to gift to yourself or someone special in your life!
