For the benefit of the consumer, our accessories meet these requirements:

Surgical Steel is our main material. Its development and application in contemporary jewelry are fascinating innovations.
The word Surgical refers to the quality of the steel and is used in surgical material or piercings for its low reaction with the skin.
The original color is silvery, similar to silver or platinum, and it is shiny, does not corrode or oxidize, making it ideal for product durability.
The properties of steel are adapted to current needs such as:
- Antiallergic. Does not cause allergic reactions
- Stainless steel. Does not rust with liquids or sweat
- Durable material and color. Does not lose color with use
- Minimal maintenance. No need for specific care
Surgical Steel Treaty
Surgical steel is subjected to chemical and electrochemical treatments to create new colors, so we have steel in shades of pink and gold among others. These processes make the color is durable and you can enjoy your Alqimia accessories to the fullest and without worry. The most sensitive skins may notice some reaction due to chemical treatments, so we always recommend using the original color of Surgical Steel (silver) to avoid allergic reactions.
Sterling Silver 925
Silver is a noble metal and has been the basis of traditional jewelry for centuries. At Alqimia we use 925 Sterling Silver to offer modern and elegant designs. The number 925 refers to the purity of the metal, meaning that it contains 92.5% Silver combined with other metals, mainly Copper, to improve durability and rigidity. The silver darkens with time and is sensitive to the pH of each person's skin, however, with a chamois or silver cleaner can remove accumulated impurities. The 925 Sterling Silver produces few allergies, even so, we have customers whose skin does not tolerate this metal, if this is the case, we recommend using Surgical Steel (silver) to avoid allergic reactions.
Cubic Zirconia is an artificial stone, created in laboratories and for decades has remained the Diamond's most important competitor. Distinguishing between Zirconia and Diamond is very difficult because the original color of the Zirconia is colorless, clean and without optical flaws, only trained eyes could differentiate them. Today, Cubic Zirconia is valued for its own merits and is available in a wide range of colors. It is the choice par excellence of contemporary jewelry and Alqimia.
