The history behind the Vault Collection

Brutalism in the world of architecture is a style that emerged during the 1950s in the United Kingdom, among the reconstruction projects of the post-war era. Brutalist buildings are characterized by minimalist constructions that showcase the bare building materials and structural elements over decorative design.

Silver has been used since ancient times as a protective shield against demons and forces of evil, and became an important part of the Norwegian national costumes centuries ago. The jewellery carried layers of symbolism reflecting on important aspects of life such as love, eternity and balance.

Inspired by the history of silver and the hardness of brutalist architecture we launched the Vault Collection.


Starting out from basic key shapes named Vault Double, Vault Triple or Vault Shield, you can slide in band rings in multiple versions including black onyx, red garnet and olive quartz to design a refined, unique and personal ring.


The Brooches are a modern twist on the traditional Norwegian brooches often used on national costumes, honouring the Norwegian traditions.

The collection emphasizes each unit to become collector items that can be inherited through generations and carried the way you like it, as single units or matched in multiple and personal ways.


The Earrings have a satin finish, leaving a distinct sharpness for every individual piece of jewellery. Use as separate products or easily combine with other earrings or cuffs from the collection.
