About Jewellery

At all times we have used the treasures of nature, enriched by artists to decorate the human body. Jewellery in various civilizations had originally a more symbolic than esthetic feature.

We all know that Peruvian jewelry has a great tradition from the Inca Empire and is the story of that glorious period, which inspires us to develop our designs and our brand Kolke that blends the ancient with the contemporary. We select and create unique pieces of art expression and in line with international standards concerning designs and quality.

Kolke designs and produces 950 silver jewelry with semi-precious stones such as: amazonite, chrysocolla (Peruvian turquoise), lapis-lazuli, Andean opal, rhodochrosite, serpentine, sodalite, and the spondyllus, Inca sacred shell.

Our designer Mercedes Lamborelle, investigates the symbols, signs and meanings of drawings, shapes and stones of pre-Hispanic cultures. Each piece has an investigation, a meaning and a connotation through semi-precious stones. We also work with various distinguished designers and goldsmiths. For this reason we can say that we produce jewelry with history.

Kolke in Quechua

In "Quechua", the dialect of the Incas, was named Kolke to silver. For this reason our jewelry brand has this name that also means "metal of the moon." Our logo and symbol is a geometric bird, iconography of the Chancay Culture which is used in textiles and jewelry. The bird traveler has been inspiring many artists in the past and present. This little exporter bird now has an special mission: select the new treasures of Peru.
