The Allpa jewelry collection is entirely made by hand and involves long hours, dedicated to making jewelry of the highest quality. Peru has an ancient tradition of silver and goldsmiths dating from pre-Columbian times. Northern Chimu and Moche cultures made astonishing objects made of silver, gold, and copper that were used as adornments for high dignitaries. These pieces have been found in tombs and can be seen now in world class museums. This rich heritage of casting, soldering, embossing, and wiring of metals has been passed down through generations. Today, these skills are mixed with contemporary trends and designs to make beautiful objects that can successfully reach the global market. This creates jobs for many families and keeps the tradition alive.
