Can I return my engraved item?
Afraid not, sales of engraved items are final.
Can I get a certificate of authenticity?
No problem at all, all of Bulwik’s pieces include a certificate of authenticity as standard.
What kind of Gold do you use?
Pure gold (24-karat) is much too soft to wear as jewelry, so other metals are added to purest gold to enhance its durability. It’s about striking the perfect balance between the warmth and purity of gold and adding just enough alloy to ensure the jewelry’s longevity, or to give it a particular hue (like white or rose gold). For the primer on Bulwik’s golds, head over here.
Are your diamonds conflict-free?
We are completely committed to only using diamonds (and, for that matter, any raw materials) from sources that are certifiably conflict-free throughout the supply chain. We’re also going far beyond that to insist that our suppliers practice the highest levels of social, environmental and human rights responsibility. If you’re as passionate about this as we are, you can find out more here.
What’s the quality of your gemstones?
All of our white diamonds are graded SI (‘eye-clean’) or above for clarity, and Colorless (D to F) or Near Colorless (G to J). Each product page contains detailed information about its specific cut and carat.
Do any Bulwik's pieces contain nickel?
Absolutely not. We only use18-karat gold.
Which materials are Bulwik’s pieces crafted from?
We only use the finest materials possible, for us, this doesn’t just mean using the purest gold, diamonds and pearls we can find, but also insisting on only using materials that meet our meticulous ethical standards. We’re setting new industry standards for responsible sourcing.
