Charles Albert is a brand celebrated for its innovative designs and high-quality, handcrafted jewelry. The newest collection, Alchemia, is inspired by the ancient mythical craft of transforming lesser metals into gold. Similarly, Alchemia fuses a secret blend of elements that when combined simulate the look and feel of 18K gold. This alloy is nickel-free, lead-free and a cost effective alternative to precious metals. It will not tarnish. All Charles Albert creations are one-of-a-kind, encouraging the wearer to express his or her individuality.
Ruby anyolite, also called ruby in zoisite, has beautiful jade and violet hues. Made of red corundum mixed with jade green zoisite, this lovely stone is mined in Norway, Alaska, Kenya and Tanzania. Discovered relatively recently in Austria in 1805, the opaque version of the stone seen here is often used for carving.
