Alchemía, (pronounced al-KHEM-ee-uh), is inspired by the latin word 'alchemy' - the ancient mythical craft of transforming lesser metals into gold. Designer and Founder, Charles Albert, introduced Alchemía to fill a void in the accessories market. He wanted to create affordable, high quality fashion jewelry using fossils, gemstones and other materials usually found in more expensive lines.

Alchemía or 'Zero Karat Gold' is created through base metal infusion. When base metals are blended in specific proportions, it has the look and feel of 18K gold, but without the price.
  • Alchemía or 'Zero Karat Gold' is not plated. The color is throughout which set Charles Albert® apart from most fashion jewelry.
  • The metal is nickel free, lead free and cadmium free.
  • A strong protective lacquer is used to prevent the metal from turning or tarnishing. This also makes the metal hypoallergenic.

All jewelry is hand crafted by skilled artisans in Mexico. Most of these talented people have been working with Charles for almost 20 years. These artisans are some of the best metal smiths in the world.
