As I have written in the past, there is almost nothing I love more than perusing the artisan markets of Peru. Each visit provides a chance to see new treasures, from beautiful paintings to intricately carved gourd designs. My favorite, of course, is the handcrafted sterling silver jewelry. The handcrafted earrings, bracelets and necklaces I have found in Peru are unlike any I have seen elsewhere. People always stop me to ask where I found this unique jewelry. If you’re looking for a unique jewelry gift, or just a special piece of jewelry for yourself, these Silver Heart Earrings are perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Handcrafted Sterling Silver Jewelry
Peruvian artisans have created handcrafted sterling silver jewelry designs for centuries, using ancient techniques and high quality .950 sterling silver. With its unusually high silver content, this material is particularly stunning when used in silver necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Peruvian artisans also make use of the beautiful native materials of their country, including Chrysocolla, or Peruvian Turquoise. A visit to the artisan market will be a memorable part of any trip to Peru, and you are sure to leave with treasures like this Peruvian Turquoise Bracelet. At one time you could only find this high quality jewelry in Peru, but Peruvian silver jewelry designs like this Peruvian Turquoise Bracelet are now available online at Tikanchay.
