Federico de Alzága for Aracano
Aracano is a collection of jewelry inspired by Andean designs. Our gold and silver, from the heart of the Andes, project the noble strength of ancient mountain gods. Andean warriors used these silver charms for protection during their battles and their hunting expeditions. Women took them for their magical powers and for their energy, and wore them during their fertility rituals. Aracano revives, using the same pure materials, the magic and strength of the Andes and its people.
