In Incan Peruvian culture mythology they considered gold to be the ‘Sweat of the Sun’ and Silver to be the ‘Tears of the Moon’. From this civilisation we also brought this idea, as well as the elegant semicircle shape, because it was used throughout the prehistoric civilization of Peru in body adornment. Distinct Gles Jewels designs are achieved by saw piercing technique believed to be dating before 1600s.
