The Story of Nothofagus
Each April, the Tasmanian highlands come alight in a brilliant, colourful display... the leaves of the Nothofagus Gunnii turn from emerald green to tawny russet and vibrant gold, before falling to the ground.
The Nothofagus Collection pays homage to the majesty and mystique of the Nothofagus Gunnii, Australia’s only deciduous tree, found exclusively in the Tasmanian Highlands.
Yes, we make rings in all different sizes, including larger and hard-to-find sizes - because we know we’re all made differently. If you don't see your size available when adding a piece to your cart, please get in touch and we can provide a quote.
No. All Tasmania By Claudia pieces are handcrafted in only the most beautiful (and often ethically recycled to reduce impact) solid gold; the Nothofagus collection is crafted in luxurious 18 karat gold and the Furneaux collection in lovely 9 karat gold.
The Luna range is has thicker construction and larger framing - perfect for someone who likes bold, statement jewellery. The Stella range has more petite accents and surrounds - perfect for someone who likes more minimal, subtle beauty in their jewellery.
A ‘carat’ is a unit of weight used to measure the size of a gemstone such as a diamond. A ‘karat’ (used typically with ‘k’ when referring to gold) is a measurement indicating the proportion of gold in an alloy out of 24 parts, so 18K gold is 18/24 parts gold and is considered both beautiful and durable. In short, the higher the number, the more pure and vibrant the gold. The Nothofagus Collection utilises the more pure, luxurious 18 karat gold, while the Furneaux collection is crafted in 9 karat gold.
The 'Killiecrankie Diamond' is a form of brilliant white topaz. It is rare, being only found on Flinders Island, a small island in the Bass Strait which forms part of the Furneaux Group of islands. It is not a real diamond, however the name ‘Killiecrankie Diamond’ has been used for many years because of its clarity, brilliance and resemblance to diamond, and its origin at Killiecrankie Bay.
