Stockholm Rose Designs is an independent ethical jewellery brand based in Stockholm, Sweden.
Sophie Butler founded Stockholm Rose Designs in the summer of 2016 after moving from England to Sweden. The eco friendly jewellery brand was created after Sophie took a course with the London Jewellery School and realised as she was making her first ring that this was what she would spend her life doing. Notebooks were filled to the brim of jewellery designs and very soon after, Stockholm Rose Designs was born.
The meaning behind the brand name: Stockholm - the place where Sophie found home. Rose - long associated with England, Sophie chose the Rose to represent her english heritage and connection to nature.
Sophie has a background in Wildlife Conservation and has inside knowledge of just how important it is to lead a sustainable lifestyle. It is because of this that Stockholm Rose Designs jewellery is handmade with recycled silver and gold. Since the materials are recycled, this means that the demand of newly mined metals is lessened which benefits the environment. Stockholm Rose Designs jewellery is made using Argentium Silver; an alloy of fine silver and germanium. The silver content is higher than that of sterling and the germanium content makes for a bright, shiny and hypoallergenic metal which is 100% recycled. The gold used is recycled in Spain with a certified company, making sure that the gold is ethically sourced before being recycled.
Stockholm Rose Designs' distinct and unique style is the kind that is resilient to passing fashions. It is important that these pieces are wearable for a lifetime so the quality and design is expectant of that. Inspiration for each piece is sometimes more obvious, and other times less so! It's meaningful that the customer makes their own opinion on the inspirations behind a piece so they can feel a connection which will last.
A little secret however, is that the branch collection was inspired by dainty blueberry branches at the end of autumn...
