Solid and timeless, LOVE & HATRED pieces are designed to last lifetimes. Talismans of love, devotion and protection which are worn and passed on as enduring and treasured heirlooms. LOVE & HATRED is a memorable experience for the wearer and the admirer.

Behind The Brand

Where are your gemstones and diamonds sourced from?

Known for creating with the more unusual gemstones, LOVE & HATRED’s gem-hunter holds direct relationships and mindful involvement to supply-chain with full traceability. Cutting happens by master cutters primarily in Australia and our diamonds are ethically sourced and hand-selected by artisanal miners.


Do you offer a custom design service? If so, how long does it take to make a custom piece?

Yes, LOVE & HATRED offers a bespoke service and sentimental bespoke service from our Australian studio. Once the design elements have been confirmed the completion of the piece takes 4-6 weeks.


What is your most popular piece?

It would have to be the Insignia. The Insignia is the symbol of LOVE & HATRED – it is the logo –  representing the philosophy, “Hatreds never cease with hatreds in this world, only with Love can they cease…”. Definitely our most popular piece and come in various accents.


What advice would you give to a couple looking for their wedding jewelry?

To choose pieces you feel most comfortable wearing and not necessarily being only a ring. One could choose a symbolic pendant or wrist cuff.


What tips do you have for couples to care for their jewelry?

I’ve always told people to have a special place at home like an alter, to put their ceremonial pieces on. Therefore they will last lifetimes – and to always be respectful of the sea.
