The Tradition of the Ikat Pattern

         Precious fabrics with woven Ikat patterns have an extensive tradition. The origin of the complex technology is assumed to be in China. However, nobody knows the exact truth, since the pattern spread rapidly over the Silk Road in Central and Southeast Asia. Fabrics with Ikat patterns are now manufactured in Southeast Asia, India and Japan, Yemen and South and Central America. Above all, in India the silks of Ikat are unbeatable in quality and perfection. As you probably know, our roots are in Berlin, but also in India (who we are). Our jewelry with Ikat patterns is a tribute to India and the country of origin of our director and product designer Aalay.

  A small 2-in-1 tip: The Ikat Bands have the typical Ikat patterns not only outside, but inside, too. They can be worn on the finger or with a gold chain as a pendant. A multifunctional eye-catcher! But that’s not all! All Ikat pendants have been designed so that they can be attached to chains with a clip. This allows them to be attached flexibly to chains or bracelets. The pendants differ mainly in the shape of the pattern and the pendant itself.     Dangerls with ikat patterns A special eye-catcher are also our Ikat Dangler. The shape is minimalist and geometric, but the colours make the jewel look funky at the same time. Discover the colourful Ikat Collection and find your jewel for the summer!

The beach holiday is planned and the pool is waiting, but should the jewellery be worn in the water? Not infrequently the question arises whether jewellery can be worn to pool events without any problems? Or whether it is even harmful to wear your wedding ring while swimming in the sea as usual? The truth is that your precious pieces will be grateful if you give them a little break for these occasions. Because besides the potential danger of your jewellery slipping off and getting lost in the water, there are several other reasons why a day at the beach or pool can be harmful.

Process for personalized jewelry

You want to wear jewelry that you have not discovered anywhere? Or would you rather give your jewelry a personal touch? Then be sure to read through the next steps that will accompany you with us. Pukka Berlin also offers custom rings, necklaces, bracelets and more in addition to our collections.

What is the process of creating a personalized piece of jewelry?

1. Sun, sand and salt can damage the metal.

Contact with salt water and sand can cause erosion of the metal layer of the jewellery. Gold is naturally a soft metal and cannot be formed into jewellery on its own. Therefore, it is mixed with other metals, such as copper, to transform it into a harder metal. Copper reacts very strongly with salt, making the jewellery vulnerable. The more copper is used in the gold, the more susceptible the jewellery becomes. So 14-karat gold, for example, is more susceptible to erosion than 18-karat gold. Effects of this kind over a longer period of time thus weaken the precious metal - decomposition occurs. This leads to discolouration of the metal and increases its susceptibility to breakage. Gold-plated silver pieces are particularly at risk when they come into contact with salt water, because the water tarnishes the gold coating over time. The golden appearance fades faster and the silver under the gold coating becomes visible. It is therefore advisable to use our solid gold Fine Line, as solid gold is much less susceptible to erosion and generally more durable than gold-plated silver pieces.

how does chlorine affect jewellery?

Das Chlor im Swimming Pool kann nicht nur zu Verfärbungen, sondern auch zu einer sogenannten Korrosion führen:

Das Chlor reagiert möglicherweise mit den Metallen, die mit dem Gold vermischt sind, und kann zu Zersetzung führen. Dies könnte Deinen Verlobungsring beschädigen und dazu führen, dass die beinhalteten Diamanten oder Edelsteine aus der Fassung fallen. Um den idealen Diamanten für Deinen Verlobungsring zu finden, hilft Dir sicher unser BlogeintragTipps zum Diamantenkaufweiter. Oder buche einfach direkt einenpersönlichen Beratungsterminmit uns.

3. ...Und was ist mit den Edelsteinen?

Gemstones are highly susceptible to discoloration when exposed to saltwater or chlorine. The biggest concern is damage to the facets and gemstones itself. The stone can appear blemished meaning there are stains to its facets. This makes the stone appear dull and less shiny. For softer stones, for example amethysts or citrines, sand might buff the stone as well taking the stones sparkle away and making the surface seem rough. Watch out, because all this applies even more to fake gemstones, which are often made of glass. So it's advisable to go for jewelry with real gemstones. Fortunately, we at Pukka Berlin only work with real gemstones, so take a look at our pieces with diamonds, sapphires, rubies or moonstones.
