The AMAYA Jewellery collection is based on the reproduction of original Pre-Columbian jewellery and gold pieces as displayed at the gold museum in Bogotá
A striking and engaging necklace adorned with intricately carved gold spiral pieces and onyx gemstones. The spiral design was used extensively throughout the Pre-Columbian period and was inspired by sea and land snails. The spiral is often related symbolically to the evolution of time.
The Pre-Columbian communities must have significantly valued the snails and their shells at the time as their shapes were often cast in gold.
All of our jewellery is delivered in a complimentary gift box
Pewter is the fourth most popular metal used in jewellery, behind gold, silver, and platinum.
Because of its low melting point, our artisans are able to create safe nickel free, 24k Gold Plated jewellery with intricate detail.
24 karat gold is the ultimate gold karat – it doesn't go any higher than this.
It's the purest form and consists of 99.9% gold.
It is naturally yellow and highly valuable, but very soft and malleable.
