Establishing her brand twenty years ago, Tilly Sveaas has created jewellery with the purpose of longevity rather than seasonality. The three key themes that each piece is centred around are timelessness, quality and design purity, collectively coming together to ensure the highest standard is met.
Tilly Sveaas Jewellery is built upon honest social responsibility since its humble beginnings in Bali. The brand still uses its first ever supplier, and has now established local traders to reduce its carbon footprint. All suppliers are personally selected and regularly visited.
Both the gold and silver have been ethically sourced from environmentally conscious suppliers. The solid sterling silver is 925 stamped, and used in the chains which are gold plated from UK certified members of the Responsible Jewellery Council with a promised anti-tarnish seal from an Italian REACH* certified manufacturer. Additionally, the brand has received the Project Earth Certification from Selfridges furthering the transparency between the consumer and producer.
Not only are the products sustainable, so is the packaging. Made from sustainably managed paper and produced from 100% recycled materials, the responsibility to the planet continues even to the courier used. Sveaas draws on DHL Express for shipments as the corporation has promised Zero Emissions by 2050 with goals of delivering 70% of their first and last mile fleet with clean solutions.
