We've said it before and we'll say it again, at Caroline Hjerpe we love genuine imperfections and naturalness! We want our pieces to be authentic and unique, just like the people who's wearing them and this is why we could go on forever talking about our One Of A Kind collection - but what does it mean, why are some of our pieces one of a kind and others not?
The truth is that every handmade piece of jewelry is one of a kind, when we craft things by hand we can never make two pieces 100% identical, but when it comes to for example our plain ring collection we can always try to make the rings as similar to each other as possible.
Our One Of A Kind jewelry is always made with unique handpicked gems where we only have one example of each stone. We only work with natural gems, and we are so proud of our big gem collection where every single stone has carefully been ethically sourced and then selected by us. This means that we can help you find the perfect, unique stone just for you - regarding size, shape, color and price.
Natural gemstones are found in nature, created deep in the Earth and after being mined and cut they can be used in jewelry making. On the market today you can also find machine made gemstones, called synthetic or lab-grown. Not our cup of tea, and even if they look similar to the natural ones they will never be as rare, unique or valuable as the ones created by Mother Nature!
Some of the gems we got comes in pairs or groups with similar options, we chose to not include those in the one of a kind collection. These are of course as natural and authentic as the one of a kind ones, just not as unique!
When we make a piece of jewelry with a unique gem we can never make an identical piece again, a similar could work but never identical. So wearing a piece like this you can not only be confident that your gem comes from good conditions, you can also be confident that no one else is wearing the same one!
If you are curious to learn more on how we source our gems, stay tuned for an upcoming blog post! But until then - Check out our ONE OF A KIND collection and find your perfectly unique fit ♡
