Classic Everyday Style With a Soft Statement Edge
Our Padlock Necklace blurs the line between everyday wear and statement. This piece reflects on the 18th century symbol of a locked padlock in jewellery signifying a man’s ownership over a woman. In this story, we designed an unlocked, destroyed padlock modelled on ancient padlock jewellery designs to signify freedom, rebelling against this outdated idea.
Ethically handcrafted in Australia from both recycled sterling silver and 24ct gold vermeil, the Padlock Necklace details our signature use of aesthetic contradiction - perfect meets imperfect; abstract meets minimal; fine meets chunky.
- Handcrafted: ethically & sustainably handmade in Australia to last centuries not seasons
- Weight: 20 grams
- Materials: precious metals, recycled sterling silver or 24ct gold vermeil
- Packaging: sustainable, FSC certified with an anti-tarnish bag made from organic fair-trade cotton
Our love of values, ethics, memory and culture are stored in the jewellery we wear as if to say to others, yes, this is who I choose to be in this life and these are the things I believe to be important.
Our manufacturing ethos is quality, ethics, and sustainability. Each piece is one of a kind and is handcrafted in our Australian studio by our small team of artisans.
Caring For Your Jewellery
Each RFL piece is handmade from precious metals and requires delicate care. We recommend storing your jewellery in a cool, dark place when not worn.
Sterling Silver will naturally oxidise over time when it is exposed to air, liquid and skin. To maintain the finish, please use a silver cleaning agent or polishing cloth and gently clean.
Gold Vermeil is a layer of gold over sterling silver and is vulnerable to knocks, chlorine, soap, make-up, perfume and sweat as these agents can strip the gold. Vermeil will naturally wear over time, so we recommend removing your jewellery when sleeping, exercising, swimming or showering to increase the longevity of your piece. Gently clean use a soft cloth without any polishing agents or chemicals.
If your gold vermeil jewellery eventually wears through, we can re-plate it for you. Please contact us at email@example.com and we can provide more information.
