Cornish Tin & Gold and Cornish Tin & Silver are our exclusive fusions incorporating tin mined in Cornwall, so while its gold or silver purity is the same as any 9 carat or sterling silver, its value is unique. Every item of our jewellery contains a piece of Cornwall.
If Cornwall holds a special place in your heart, you may choose from our exclusive range or commission your very own bespoke piece, individual to you.
A Cornish Romance
“Some say of the Cornish miner His home is the wide, wide world For his pick is always ringing Where the Union Jack’s unfurled” – Herbert Thomas (1896)
Cornishmen are justly proud of their ancient tin mining history dating back more than 250 years. By the 1830s thousands of Cornishmen, women and children were employed by mines suppling most of the worlds tin and copper.
Their skills and industrial invention took Cornish miners all over the globe. Today there are over 6 million people of Cornish descent living worldwide, from Nevada to Norway, Australia to India, Spain to South Africa. (If you are one of those Cornish descendants we’d love you to get in touch and share your story with us).
And so our special 9 and 18 carat gold and silver jewellery is sent out all over the world, with love.
Where possible, all of our Cornish Tin & Gold and Cornish Tin & Silver jewellery is identified with a tiny map of Cornwall. Wedding rings have a map stamped on the inside.
