About Polar Jewelry
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 for harmoniously blending different elements, is in the DNA of Polar Jewelry. The two founders themselves have combined their nontraditional creative background to create a unique hybrid aesthetic for their jewelry. Louise Kaiser studied Industrial & Product Design at Central St Martins and has worked in London for the past 7 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.
One of our most important initiatives is ethical sourcing, making sure that our materials are sustainable.
Why Bamboo Corals?
For centuries, coral, particularly the red and pink varieties, has been used in jewelry. It is a beautiful material, but what many people don’t realize is that coral is a living organism and is being harvested indiscriminately. Coral makes up the foundation of the marine ecosystem. Basically it is the rainforest of the sea, providing food and shelter to over 25% of the ocean’s biodiversity. The current practice of harvesting coral is completely unregulated and if it continues, there will be no more coral.
Bamboo Coral is as close to deep sea color coral you can buy without endangering the environment. Bamboo Coral is one type of sea coral, named such because of its bamboo-like appearance, not because it is made from bamboo. It is a type of Coral the grows fast in shallow sea. Red Bamboo Coral has been stabilized or dyed.
ProductionOur production is dedicated to sustainability and is a part of The United Nations Global Compact, who supports the values of labor and human rights, anti-corruption, and the environment, and is a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council, an international standard on responsible practice in the jewelry business.
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)

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.
