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.
Agate is a striped chalcedony quartz that forms in layers and in a wide variety of colors and textures. An individual agate forms by filling a cavity in a "host" rock. As a result, agate often is found as a round nodule, with concentric bands. In ancient times it was said to quench thirst and guard against fever, and agate bowls were very popular in historical Europe.
