The passion to create jewelry and the desire to make a difference started the idea about Albrecht&Vera.
It all began a long time ago. I spent most of my childhood in my grandfather’s workshop. He was an old fashioned blacksmith and he passed on the basic skills and love for the craftsmanship.
During my education I among others trained at London based artist Husam el Odeh. While starting up Albrecht&Vera I assisted goldsmith Orit Elhanati.
Albrecht&Vera Jewelry is designed and handcrafted in a forest studio outside Copenhagen.
Albrecht means the precious and Vera means the truth. The jewelry is made with admiration for nature’s beauty and respect for the environment and people involved in the process. We constantly strive to be responsible and sustainable in every part of our value chain.
All jewelry is made by hand. Our precious metals are genuine and natural. When possible, we use reclaimed silver and biogold, which is old gold that is refined and recycled for the production of new gold. We work with local collaborators i.e. Copenhagen based foundry and fairtrade jewelry wholesaler. The stones we use are natural and not artificially produced or colour treated and we only use certified conflict free diamonds.
We are not perfect but we strive to do our best.
We hope to spread a little gold along your way, while staying true and committed to the sustainable way of doing things.
