COLOMBIA | Pre-Columbian reproduction jewelry and objects

The Cano Family's association with pre-Columbian cultures began in the late 19th Century when stone paver Nemecio Cano's archeological discoveries ignited a passion for indigenous artefacts. Through generations of exploration, study, artistic and technical efforts, the Cano family has been able to rediscover and reproduce these traditional pre-Hispanic jewelry and art pieces.  

Luis Alberto Cano jewelry is created by highly skilled artisans using the same ancient methods practiced by indigenous goldsmiths — including lost wax casting, hammering, bas-relief and high-relief — in 24k gold-plated brass, 18k gold and .925 sterling silver. L A Cano's use of these methods not only facilitates authentic reproductions, but also maintains the spirit of the pre-Hispanic craftsmen for whom working with gold was a means of accessing divinity and the supernatural.
