Alchemy was a spiritual endeavor; it was not simply about making gold. The inner pursuit of spiritual wholeness and the highest form of spiritual growth and development was also a focus. In these times, gold was said to contain the perfect balance of fire, air, water, and earth. Seen as the most superior element, being able to create gold was viewed as magical. You can see how this quest was not something easily abandoned but pursued the world over from Asia to Africa and Europe.


After mixing metals together, Alchemía is formulated and pressed into a metal sheets. These metal sheets are then cut out and made into the shapes of each distinct gemstone, mineral or fossil being used.Whether it is for the bezels in all of our jewelry, the bales on pendants or the shanks on rings, our Artisans, with a keen eye, meticulously forge the metal into different pieces.


Though inspired by the ancient mythical craft of alchemy, Our Alchemía manages to infuse a special blend of base metals to produce matchless pieces with the look and feel of 18K gold. The metal used is also free of nickel, lead, and cadmium. Special attributes of Alchemía make it most fascinating because it carries the quality and aesthetics of gold with a price that doesn't drain your bank account. Because Alchemía is not plated gold, the color you see is inside and out and will not turn or tarnish due to an incredibly, strong, protective lacquer. So strong in fact, all of our Alchemía pieces are hypoallergenic.
