About Polar Jewelry

Founded in 2017, Polar Jewelry is a Copenhagen-based jewelry brand. Our ethos is to instil a little bit of unconventionality, elegance and wonder into every collection we make and curate. Every collection is always thematic and revolves around a subject that has captured our imaginations from an experiential and creative perspective. After an idea has formed in our minds, we start putting pencil to paper to explore the aesthetic depths of it. Each piece begins life as a hand-drawn concept. From this process, fluid forms, shapes, colors and configurations begin to arise. The subtle intricacy of these designs requires dexterous craftsmanship and the usage of the finest materials to ensure functional, high-quality pieces.

We believe the experience of jewelry to be just as important as the jewelry piece itself. With this in mind, we seek to design standalone collections and create packaging that is as beautiful as it is functional. We believe all these aspects of jewelry, just like elements of nature, work together to create a holistic product. Polar Jewelry also strives to reduce all plastic usage through our sustainable packaging system. Every piece of jewelry is accompanied by a gift box, a cotton drawstring bag, a soft velvet jewelry envelope and a care guide. All packaging is suitable for reuse as storage or as a travel receptacle. Alternatively, it can be recycled.

We see each collection as a story; each piece is a chapter designed to take you on a journey.

 About the founders

A love for experimentation and playing with different elements is in the DNA of Polar Jewelry. The two founders themselves have combined their nontraditional creative backgrounds to create a unique hybrid aesthetic for their jewelry. Louise Kaiser studied Industrial & Product Design at Central St Martins and worked in London for seven years. Anne Sofie Fenneberg is an award-winning sculptor and artist. In 2017, she graduated with a Master's from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. The application of their skills from these complementary crafts into jewelry-making, ensures a product that is equally artistic, functional and distinctive.

 

 


Materials

All our pieces are made by hand, from the finest 925 sterling silver, with 22K gold  or rhodium plating. Mixed with natural freshwater pearls and red bamboo corals. Polar Jewelry goes to great lengths to source and handpick only the highest quality materials and color palettes to mirror the ambition of the collections. One of our most important initiatives is ethical sourcing. This means making sure that our materials are sustainable.

Why Bamboo corals?

For thousands of years, red and pink corals has been used for jewelry. It is a beautiful material but many people don’t realize corals are living organisms and are harvested indiscriminately. Coral makes up the foundation of the marine ecosystem. Corals are the rainforests of the sea that provides food and shelter to over 25% of the planet's marine life. The current practice of harvesting coral is unregulated and if it continues, coral will become extinct.

Luckily, bamboo coral is a beautiful alternative to red and pink coral. Its name is derived from its bamboo-like appearance and is a type of coral the grows very quickly in shallow sea. It still offers those organic palettes of other corals without endangering the environment. Red bamboo coral are stabilized or dyed to achieve the desired color.

Production

Our production is dedicated to sustainability and is a part of The United Nations Global Compact. They promote labor and human rights, anti-corruption and the protection of the environment. It is a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council that provides an international standard on responsible practice in the jewelry business.

 Social responsibility

Social consciousness has been in Polar Jewelry’s heart from the beginning. Therefore, we have a collaboration with Foreningen Grønlandske børn, which you can read more about below:

About Foreningen Grønlandske Børn (FGB)

FGB works for securing a safe childhood and improved future in Greenland as well as in Denmark and engages in the entire upbringing – from mothers’ groups, the support of the family’s life to projects for placed kids and to act as assessor for children in Greenland. The organisation employs approx 30 people located in five Danish and four Greenlandic communities. FGB was established in 1924, and Her Majesty Queen Margrethe 2nd  is a patron of the organisation.

About summer camps

Each year FGB invites every child from one community to attend four weeks of summer camp. The young volunteers secure the experiences, while FGB together with the citizens and the institutions of the city provide for the locations. Typically, FGB ensures the facilities; schools and the sports halls and ensure that the gear for play, sport and creativity get there on time. FGB also takes care that the entire city is invited to taste the visiting volunteers’ local dishes just as the volunteers have the opportunity to witness a piece of the arctic experience. In 2019 the trip will go to Paamiut in Western Greenland and to Ittoqqortoormiit in Eastern Greenland.
