Exquisite Alchemia Zero Gold Lovebirds Jewelry
Alchemía, (pronounced al-KHEM-ee-uh), is inspired by the ancient mythical craft of transforming lesser metals into gold. Alchemía is a blend of base metals that when combined simulate the look and feel of 18K gold. Alchemia or 'Zero Karat Gold' is not plated. - The metal is nickel-free, lead-free and lacquered, thus making it hypoallergenic. - A cost-effective alternative to precious metals. - Handcrafted and has the same superior quality of Sterling Silver.
The symbol of the Lovebirds is a very popular one, representing the union of the Eagle and the Raven as one sticking with tradition, a tribal member who was an Eagle would choose to marry a member of the opposite clan, that of the Raven.
