Why care?

AKVA Jewellery was founded in 2018 by Tascha, Olivia and Cecilie. We started the company as a project focused on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals where the 14th goal: Life Below Water was and still is our focus point. To us the ocean is an enormous inspiration source with its everlasting beauty: The mesmerizing tides that move back and forth as Mother Nature breathes; the calm view of a sunrise above the ocean as a new day begins; and the rough and powerful waves hitting against the coastline.

This is the beauty we, as the women behind the company, want to preserve – and we want to inspire our followers to do the same. The ocean is suffering because of humans and our excessive consumption. The UN proclaims that before 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our ocean if we do not start acting differently. AKVA Jewellery is inspired by nature around and within the ocean and we want to remind the wearer of our jewellery of this incomparable beauty that we, together, need to take care of. Our jewellery is created in precious metals with a timeless design, that will last for generations. With AKVA Jewellery we hope to inspire and to start conversations about this important message because we believe that change is found in inspiration, knowledge and sharing.

Therefore knowledge will be shared on this page: To inspire and change by starting small. We, AKVA Jewellery, believe that every single drop makes an ocean and that is why, together, we can make a difference. Many people have stopped buying plastic bags when grocery shopping, say no to plastic straws and in general make more conscious choices. We want to create more small changes and we want to encourage you to do the same. Tips on how to act and consume with care for our nature will be shared right here. We hope you will join the wave.

How do we care?

The casting of our jewellery is done by Kalman Hafner in Germany. We want to keep our production as local as possible without compromising on quality. By collaborating with Kalman Hafner we ensure good quality, quick delivery and conscious social responsibility for the workers who come in contact with our jewellery. Our jewellery is created in recycled silver and gold (read more here) and the transportation is reduced compared to competitive companies in Europe. We gladly pay the price for EU standards in every step of the production chain. When casted, the finishing of our jewellery is done by us in our little workspace in Copenhagen.

Sustainability is thought into all steps – from the jewellery itself to the packaging around. We strive to do our best when it comes to taking care of the planet and we want to grow with the sustainable development that is continuously growing.
