The silver jewellery before polishing, crystals and corals

950 Sterling Silver

All InkaDesigns’ jewellery are made of pure peruvian silver and are handmade by well-known silversmiths / artisans in Cusco, Peru. The silver level is 950 (95%) Sterling Silver, and each piece of jewellery is provided with a silver stamp.

Even though the price for silver is increasing far too quick, I have, however, succeeded in making a fine agreement with both Senorita Mercedes and her family at the workshop in Cusco, Peru and with Senorita Angelica. All jewellery are stamped 950 (Sterling Silver).

An in order to be quite certain, the jewellery have been acid tested here in Denmark and it is silver all the way through.

Symbol

Tumi (medicine man)

Tumi, the medicine man brings good luck | InkaDesign

The Tumi is also called the “Medicine Man”; and it is also a ceremonial Inkan offering knife.

Sitting on a piece of jewellery or hanging on a wall, the Tumi means good luck.

The head of the Tumi represents Wiracocha, The Inkan God.

One of the most important surgical used instrument in ancient Peru during the Inka Empire was the “Tumi”, a knife made of an alloy of copper, called “Champi”, which is considered as being a symbol of Peruvian medicine.

At present, the Tumi is Perus national symbol, but was to a large extent used by the sun adoring cultures like the Inkas and the pre-Inkas who flourished in ancient Peru.

With a characteristic semicircular sword made of a gold alloy, bronze, copper or a silver alloy. In the Inkan dynasty it was used by the high priest to offer up a llama at the Inty Raymi festival.

First of all the Tumi is a symbol of good luck. Many Peruvian homes have a large specimen hanging on the wall in the sitting room – in order to take care of their homes.
