Man has always loved to be adorned.The earliest known jewellery was actually created by Neanderthals living in Europe. Perforated beads made from small seashells have been found dating to 115,000 years ago along the southeast coast of Spain.
In early societies, jewellery was worn as amulets to protect against bad luck an illness. Jewellery later came to denote human connection and commitment. These emotional needs of love and belonging motivated our ancestral creatives to make jewellery that could be worn as a trophy, a symbol of status, or as a deeply personal gift to express something words quite couldn't
“A handmade piece feels different on your hand, on your skin, and is definitely more precious and personal as it tells a deeper story, your story“

We live in an era of mass-production and this includes jewellery. Commercial jewellery is made using machinery, CAD (Computer-Aided Design program) and 3D printing and casting technologies. This basically means that there are unlimited pieces available that look just the same but often lack quality and imagination. Mass-produced jewellery however loses its fundamental purpose of letting us assert our individuality.
Handmade jewellery on the other hand is made by skilled craftsmen using all traditional techniques.The rolling and hammering cause the metal to become denser, stronger and therefore more durable. Handmade jewellery is more detailed and thoughtful making the quality and craftsmanship incomparable. Handmade offers unparalleled opportunities for creative freedom and customization reflecting your individual style.

We embrace modern technology of polishing a natural rough diamond to maximize its value and brilliance. However, at UNTOLD, we strongly believe that once a diamond is “CHOSEN”, emotion kicks in and technology needs to make way for tradition and artisanal craftsmanship in order to co-create meaningful jewellery”
