Launched at Stockholm Fashion Week in 2017, Hargreaves Stockholm has quickly become known as a fine jewellery brand with ethics and quality at its heart. Their designs combine clean Scandinavian lines, the smooth weight and feel of solid precious metals and Jemima Hargreaves’ now signature scatter of responsibly sourced diamonds and coloured stones.
The feeling of holding something that could be made of magic or even a piece of the stars themselves in your own hand is like nothing else. That connection is created with absolute passion and skill wrought in responsibly sourced 18k gold and beautifully set with carefully selected diamonds and gemstones in Stockholm, Sweden.
A magpie since birth, perhaps even more so now, Jemima Hargreaves loves anything that glitters and sparkles; her favourite and the inspiration for many of the pieces she creates are the small glass topped boxes of diamonds and stones she has collected over the last 20 years of her career as a Master Goldsmith. Impressive enough on their own, when mixed together the stones sparkle in the nordic sunlight with their deep and varied rainbow tones, sparking memories of the Swedish coast and forests that Jemima now calls home.
Jemima is an apprentice trained Master Goldsmith, qualified DGA in 2005 (Diamond Member of the Gemmological Association), with 20 years experience in the fine jewellery industry. She has managed generations-old traditional workshops, fast-fashion production and boutique businesses, consulted for some of Europe's longest standing jewellery companies and has created pieces and managed projects for royalty, celebrities and private collectors.
“The fine jewellery trade is steeped in a wonderful tradition, this doesn't mean that it has to stagnate, new possibilities open with every piece of new technology and every new discovery. It has become clear that a consumer should be assured that products they eat, clothe themselves in and adorn themselves with, are produced responsibly, ecologically and ethically. Every industry has a responsibility to look after their corner of the world, the jewellery industry is no exception, regardless of its tradition.”
Our pieces blend Scandinavian simplicity and clean lines with reminders of our distant heritage. We create timeless, solid, tactile pieces that are made by our small team of skilled craftspeople using both traditional and cutting edge techniques.
We believe in change...
To launch our brand, we commissioned a wonderful film showcasing our jewellery and describing our ethos.
We are still very proud of it now...- why not take a few minutes out of your busy day and watch?
How are we ethical?
At Hargreaves Stockholm we carefully select the finest materials from the most responsible sources. Wherever possible we use Fairmined Ecological gold and Fairmined silver. We focus on using laboratory grown stones, primarily diamonds grown using a revolutionary method that harnesses solar power to create diamonds with zero carbon footprint. It is important to us to promote real diamonds that are cultivated without the human and environmental toll of mining.
Every element of our process is extensively researched to ensure we use responsible materials and practices. We want to ensure our packaging is as responsible as possible and that our manufacturing techniques and choices we make on a daily basis are the most environmentally responsible option, even down to the tea and coffee we drink, in our world everything matters...
Our beautiful ethical jewellery is sold all over the globe, we’ve shipped glittery things to a whole host of countries; All of them lovingly packaged in our luxury ecologically sourced chocolatey dark walnut wooden box and thick coffee coloured bag all printed with our signature “Hargreaves Hare” logo and tied off with a luxurious orange ribbon, it really is the perfect gift!
