- Our Story
Length: 40 cm + 3 cm extension
Most people think all bees live in hives, make honey and serve a queen. Not so. The solitary bee have no social hierarchy and fend for themselves. But although they live solo, they tend to nest close to another solitary bee for closeness. Moreover, they play an important role in our world. Just like the driven and ambitious women, who breaks out to go their own way and find their own path. Small but mighty, wear this necklace with the same representation of the bees who are the symbols of blossom, growth and new beginnings. The beautiful Solitary Bee is crafted from 925 silver plated with 18k gold. A treasured keepsake for yourself, or to gift another bee in your life.
Also available in silver.
- 925 Silver with recycled origin
- 18K Gold micron plating
Crafted from recycled 925 silver, which is the process of precious silver being extracted from used products, then melted down and reused to make new silver products. This process saves a vast amount of energy and carbon emissions.
The gold-pieces we have are plated with a thick layer 18K gold micron plating on top of a pure 925 silver base. Gold plating is still real gold, the difference from solid gold is in the base of the jewellery. Using a pure silver base for our gold pieces allows you to have the qualities of solid gold without the huge cost of an item being entirely made from solid gold.
All of our pieces are completely free from nickel.
LUZO was born out of the need for beautiful, fine, good quality yet affordable jewellery, inspired by the mission of empowering women and being kind to our earth. LUZO in old Portuguese means “To Shine” which is what we aim to help everyone do, both inside and out.
