A rich and engaging necklace depicting the importance of wearing gold which was alluding to the sun, the divinity symbolising the origin and renewal of life. These pendants are replicas of pieces discovered from the Muisca culture. The three suns here representing sunrise, midday and sunset, Dawn to Dusk.
The gold cylindrical necklace pieces were inspired by the Pre-Columbian ceramic body/fabric roller stamps and the widely used spiral carvings. The roller stamps can be seen in the attached image.
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 carat 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.
