Onyx is a staple of the CHD collections. When in doubt, rely on the reliability of the Black Onyx. 

Agate and Onyx are both varieties of layered chalcedony. Ranging from black to almost every colour. 

The deep black has a traditional prestige and is generally our go-to stone for most designs due to its clean class and safe option for any accessory setup.

Tigers Eye

Posted by Afterpay Afterpay on

Tigers Eye, a member of the Quartz family, has an iconic staggered amber and orangish/brown textures lines throughout the stone. 

It's often one of the first stones you will notice once taking an interest in jewellery, mainly due to the sheer abundance of it's use. However, for this same reason, it is often forgotten about or not given it's true respect as the beauty of a stone, it is. 

It has long ties into traditional signet jewellery and we've used it in our Cushion Ring, Swallow Cushion and Cushion Crossed Arrows. It may not have an initial flare that many stones do, but it's reliability and unique touch, will grow on you. We'll tell you that much for free.

One of the most recognisable and eye-drawing stones. Known for its powdery blues and greenish hues.

Most of our Turquoise cabochons will contain pieces of the host rock 'matrix' running through the stone, giving that beautiful black textured web. 

From the ancient Egyptians to the CHD Studio, you'll find this in our Square & Stone Ring, Oval & Stone and the December Monthly Exclusive piece.

Dendrite Opal

Posted by Afterpay Afterpay on

Dendrite Opal is a form of common Opal, which has dark dendritic textures through the base to give the appearance of a moss-like growth. From opaque pale whites, through to translucent greys.  

We use this beauty in the Cushion Ring, Cushion Crossed Arrows and the Swallow Cushion. 

We believe the stone to have a real value due to the how diverse and unique each stone is from the next, bringing a further sense of significance to your piece. No two the same.
