As for copper, Peru is one of the main silver exporters in the world. Because of this, silver and goldsmithing are traditions that were developed by original cultures in Peru as we can see in world class museums. Colonial and republican times increased the richness of this tradition and at present times we have a huge number of artisans working with these rich metals in our nation. In Allpa we pride ourselves of designing every year new collections of silver and gold- plated silver jewelry. These are hand made by artisans who have been collaborating with us for many years.
