The Copenhagen-born, Danish-Irish MARIA BLACK creates contemporary fine and fashion jewellery collections that are driven by the brand’s inclusive ethos, and which invite individuals to explore and embrace their individuality in fresh and creative ways. Using a combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern techniques, the sculptural shapes of our precious metal designs are inspired by sources as diverse as everyday objects, people, subcultures and life moments. MARIA BLACK jewellery becomes an intrinsic part of your personal style and the pared-back styles can be styled in a variety of ways, allowing the wearer’s personality to shine..
Sustainability is important when choosing brands for our boutique. We understand that harm has traditionally been caused by the extraction, refinement and crafting of mines, and we appreciate that MARIA BLACK uses IMPACT gold in their products which is a mixed alloy, consisting of 30% Fairtrade gold and 70% recycled gold. This means that we can divert some of our resources towards the small-scale artisanal miners and simultaneously manage our waste. This pushes us to ensure a positive impact we can relate to our work: securing and improving the livelihoods of communities that extract mines, the landscapes they are mined in, and all our future well-being.
