Know The Story
Since 1996, Charles has carved out a niche in the marketplace by designing one-of-a-kind fossil, mineral & gemstone jewelry set in .950 (95% pure) fine sterling silver. Every piece of jewelry is meticulously hand-made from designs that Charles and Beth, have put together. Charles Albert, Inc. produces fantastic jewelry with the widest variety of stones from all over the world. All Charles Albert pieces are signed and the quality of work is unsurpassed. Over time, Charles Albert, Inc. has earned a good reputation for style, excellent quality and fantastic customer service.
In 2011, Charles Albert introduced Alchemía to fill a noticeable void in the accessories market by providing an accessible alternative to gold jewelry with the known superior quality of his fine sterling silver pieces. The company, including its craftsmen in Mexico, sought to create a cost effective option to silver and gold. After months of experimenting, the team developed a nickel-free, lead-free gold tone metal. Charles Albert chose to call the collection “Alchemía” (pronounced al-KHEM-ee-uh), the Latin word for Alchemy; the ancient mythical craft of transforming lead into gold. Similarly, Alchemía by Charles Albert® infuses a secret blend of elements to produce a gold-like metal, which is later set with raw materials and unusual stones to create elegant artisan jewelry.
Charles Albert is constantly sourcing new materials, designing trendsetting jewelry and has no plans of slowing down. With a recent collaboration with pop-star, Ke$ha, a purchase of a larger office and an excellent staff to help our customers we are just getting started.
