They Invest in the future: Again, heavy investments were made in 2018 - also to promote sustainability: In addition to energy saving machines such as a state of the art dual belt soldering furnace, new ventilation systems were fitted in the entire building with heat recovery. Water dispensers with filters supply all employees free of charge with oxygen enriched cold water.
They are Innovating for the future: Automation, precision, quality and new manufacturing processes are key elements of the Schofer innovation programme - investing in the future! The new chain cutting machine works very accurately and enables a rational production. A completely new generation of chain making machines enables many new chain models to be created.
The strive for Constant improvement: In 2017, they extensively updated the entire production facility. A modern working environment enhances the quality of the product - so, we also installed LED lighting in the entire production area, supplying daylight quality lighting for all workstation and cutting power costs nearly in half.
They installed a new circulation cooling system: thanks to this investment, the environment is protected as hardly any fresh water is required to cool the welding and annealing ovens. Thanks to the equal cooling of the ovens, constant temperatures are ensured and the process safety is increased.
Luke Rose only uses diamonds sourced from ethical and accredited suppliers who have all signed up to the Kimberley Process. Luke Rose Champagne Diamonds in particular are all sourced from the Argyle Mine in Western Australia. We handpick each diamond and precious stone that is used to ensure standards and quality is in line with the Luke Rose brand.
We strive to be zero waste and as such, every single item is handmade in our Sydney Studio and made to order. Operating this way allows us to recycle all surplus gold and silver.
At Luke Rose we are committed to creating handmade, bespoke jewellery. It is a highly skilled process and as such requires training local talent in the Sydney Studio.
Luke Rose was established in 2015 with the vision to create a new luxury brand with an emphasis on "Slow Fashion". Luke is passionate about a sustainable approach to design, rejecting the mass production and chemical laden processes used in gold plating.
Our Suppliers all align with our ethics and adhere to strict codes of conduct.
As you can see a lot of love, care and effort are put into each piece we create for our customers. We ask that you treasure and take care of your Luke Rose jewellery for generations to come.
