What is Spondylus?

Spondylus is a rare shell that the Incas would dive to great depths of 15-30 meters (50-100 feet) to harvest, considering them more precious than silver and gold. Spondylus was used in jewelry, rituals, architectural decoratinos (in powdered form), and as currency.

In this spirit, we take the time to create pieces with timeless value, focusing on utility, feel, and appearance. We strive to create thoughtful designs with the highest quality materials that will age beautifully and become faithful companions in your journey.
