Designed by hand, Alchemista’s line of unique limited edition jewelry and accessories is bold yet refined. This Philippine accessory brand is identifiable by its eclectic & often paradoxical elements, interesting metalwork and use of genuine gemstones selected for color and quality. Reflecting its designer’s background as a former banker-turned-designer with training in metalsmithing and a lifelong passion for art, Alchemista aims for jewelry that has visual heft yet is surprisingly wearable. Wide cuffs, for example, are designed to be lightweight and moldable to the wearer’s wrist. Items such as earring studs with detachable jackets or dangles offer multiple uses and the ability to personalize your look. Best of all, Alchemista pieces are hypoallergenic and avoid harmful substances such as nickel, cadmium and lead.
