Great communication. Professional service. Very impressed by the speedy email updates on my purchase, the personal touch is much appreciated and fairly unusual when purchasing online.

This bracelet is probably my favorite piece of jewelry. The workmanship is very fine, and the rainbow of colors in the stones and shells are vibrant and clear. The clasp is so beautiful that I wear it on top of my wrist to show it off.4 years 1 week agoView review

These earrings are gorgeous, the pictures don't do them justice enough! The colors from stones and sea shells are beautiful and bright and the design is harmonious and elegant. The silver is brighter than other jewelry I have, probably due to higher concentration in pure silver (950 silver).

Beautiful jewelry and it was difficult to make a decision what to buy. This Pachamama (Mother Earth) set (ring and earrings) was one of my favorites. High quality silver in a charming 5 color combination with sea shells and precious stones.

I love these earings for their exquisite design, traditional Peruvian, yet modern. Silver is of high quality.
What is 950 silver?
Pure silver is very soft by its nature and it cannot be easily used to craft jewelry. An alloy that consists of 92.5% of silver and 7.5% of other metals (usually copper) is most commonly used for making jewelry - this is called "sterling silver". Our artisans use "950 silver" which is an alloy consisting of 95% silver and 5% of copper or other metals and which is one of the highest silver standards used for crafting jewelry that is currently in use.
