Gold nugget –jewels, necklaces and ear rings with or without garnets and some silver jewels. All these jewels are from Esko´s own production and they are casted from silver. They are steady and hold a tough use. The stones on the jewels aren´t glued. They are joined with pins. Then the piece of jewels is free from glue steams and is therefore long lasting.
