Minimal Scandinavian style meets bold modernity at All Blues. From classic hoops to gold rope necklaces, the collections present timeless designs that still pack a punch. The raw hand-carved textures used by founders Fredrik Nathorst and Jacob Skragge add an unexpected twist to year-round staples.
Influenced by Senegal and The Gambia, Oslo-based sisters Haddy and Aissatou Ceesay infuse West African craftsmanship in their Nordic jewellery brand Diawéne–a result of their multicultural background. The designers create everyday jewels that will add sheen to the simplest of outfits.

Sara Robertsson’s statement jewellery transitions seamlessly from weekend to office attire. Handcrafted from one continuous piece of silver or gold vermeil, her clean-lined designs feature airy shapes and contrasting details–the freshwater pearl is a tried-and-true favourite.
Right in between Scandinavian minimalism and Middle Eastern opulence stands Orit Elhanati’s sculptural and sleek designs. With all pieces handmade from 18k gold and conflict-free gemstones, sporting–and collecting–lavish jewellery has never seemed more appealing.
Buying a piece of jewellery that is both on-trend and responsible is no longer a feat, and Norrfolks is testament to it. The fine jewellery and engagement collections of the Swedish label are made from recycled gold and lab-grown diamonds while following fair trade working conditions. The solid 14k and 18k gold used for all pieces is another reason to splurge.
