About Polar Jewelry

Polar Jewelry is a Copenhagen jewelry brand founded in 2017. We instil elegance, wonder and unconventionality into everything we make and curate. To this end, every collection is inspired by a theme or subject that has captured our imaginations. Once selected, we love to explore the aesthetic depths of a theme by putting pencil to paper. Every jewelry piece we offer begins life as a hand-drawn concept. From this sketching process, fluid forms, shapes and configurations begin to arise. We love to create intricate yet simple designs that require dexterous craftsmanship and the usage of high-quality materials.


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 that tell a story. We  also strive 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 believe all of these aspects work together to create a holistic experience. 

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 is in the DNA of Polar Jewelry. The two founders themselves have combined their untraditional 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 an artistic, functional and distinctive product.

Materials

We go to great lengths to source high-quality materials and color palettes to reflect the ambition of the collections. All of our pieces are made by hand with the finest 925 sterling silver, with 22K gold or rhodium plating. They are then accented with natural freshwater pearls and red bamboo corals. The usage of natural materials reflects one of our company values - ethical sourcing. 

Why Bamboo corals?

For thousands of years, red and pink corals has been used for jewelry. It is a beautiful material but it is also a living organism. As it stands, this living organism is  harvested indiscriminately across the world and now faces extinction. This would be an ecological disaster because they provide food and shelter to over 25% of the planet's marine life. Corals are the "rainforests of the sea".  

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 that grows very quickly in shallow sea. It still offers organic palettes like other corals but is also sustainable. Red bamboo coral are stabilized or dyed to achieve its color.

Polar Jewelry's production is dedicated to sustainability and is a part of The United Nations Global Compact. The initiative promotes labor and human rights, anti-corruption and the protection of the environment. It is also a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council that provides an international standard for responsible practices in the jewelry business.
