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.
The Inka calendar consisted of twelve months, each of 30 days. Each month had its own festival. The Inkan year started in December and began with Capac Raymi, the largest festival.
The Inka Cross or Chakana is a strong symbol of the old cultures of the Andes and is considered the most complete, holy, geometric design of the Inkas. This symbol is often found in old places and holy centers in the Andes in Peru and in Bolivia.
The Chakana has had, and still has, a considerable meaning to the Inkas and it also represents many meanings in its design.
