Made with love in the heart of NYC.
We responsibly source our precious metals from Peru, and acquire only the purist gold. We work directly with an amazing team of expert jewelers in New York City to deliver remarkably hand crafted pieces that are built to last a lifetime (see our guarantees here).
14k is ultra vibrant in color and incredibly durable. Planning to wear your Alkeme pieces everyday, to yoga or the beach and beyond? Rest assured that our pieces can withstand even the most strenuous activities.
10 and 14 karat gold doesn't tarnish as fast as 18k and 24k, and it is highly resistant to scratching, bending, and scuffing. Its color is slightly less expressive than 18 karat gold, making it the optimal choice for your everyday looks.
You may wonder how our pieces are priced so well? We mine our gold in South America, design, and manufacture every piece in our product line. As third generation jewelers, we have confidently mastered the art of precious metals and eliminated the various, and often unnecessary, jewelry industry standard of 3 phases of exchange. We source and deliver each final piece directly to you, sans the middlemen. By streamlining and simplifying the process, we've successfully removed the surplus cost and are able to provide the finest quality gold at the fairest price possible.
Our promise: No industry markups, gold ‘plated’ (vermeil), or subpar metal. Our entire line is guaranteed solid gold, always.
