Each piece of jewelry from Charles Albert® is truly handcrafted. All sterling silver pieces start off as tiny silver pallets. They are then melted and formed into long silver sheets which is cut out into strips. Strips of silver are then carefully conformed to the edge of each stone. This allows Charles Albert® to use natural, raw and organic stones in their jewelry. Everything you see in the final product is done by hand, making it a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
Agate is a banded form of finely-grained, microcrystalline Quartz. The lovely color patterns and banding make this translucent gemstone very unique. Agates can have many distinctive styles and patterns, but each Agate is unique in its own habit, with no two Agates being the same.
