Category: The Diaguitas Collection
The Diaguitas were a aboriginal group that lived on the Northern part of Chile, in the actual provinces of Atacama and Coquimbo. They were sophisticated artists, specializing on metal and ceramic work. Their way of life was forever destroyed with the arrival of Spaniards to the South American continent. The vestiges of their art works remain us of this once proud, prosperous community.
We inspired this colorful collection on their original drawings. Each piece is handcrafted in 950 Sterling Silver with figures formed by inlayed Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise, Malachite, jasper and Obsidian. Our craftsmen actually "paint" with these stones!
