For more than ten years our jewellery has been produced in Thailand at the same factory. The jewellery is handmade as well as hand finished.
At Pernille Corydon we are fully REACH compliant and in order to protect our customers, the quality of our precious metals is tested by the Danish Precious Metal Control on a regular basis. We care about the health of our customers, so our products are nickel-free.
Even though we solely sell brand new jewellery, chances are your piece from Pernille Corydon has in fact already lived a life before as a piece of jewellery or as part of an iPhone. That is because, our jewellery production is made from certified recycled silver (including the silver base in the gold plated jewellery).
It is essential to us, that the materials we use is ethically sourced. It is impossible to fully know the true origin of recycled silver, because it can originate from many different sources. We can trace the silver as far back as to the refiner, from which Pernille Corydon Jewellery purchased the silver.
The refiner used by Pernille Corydon Jewellery is an associate member of the LBMA (London Bullion Market Association), on the GDL (Good Delivery List), as well as being listed as a conflict free smelter by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMA).
In addition to producing with recycled material, we place claims and unsold stock back into circulation by melting the silver. That makes it possible to recycle the silver yet again.
There is an inherent contradiction between the current fashion industry and sustainability. However, I hope we never stop trying to be the most responsible version of ourselves. We are constantly trying to improve Pernille Corydon Jewellery with new initiatives that can minimize our footprint. Making an effort has been a fundamental value for me since I founded Pernille Corydon Jewellery. This goes all the way from creating classic and lasting designs, to producing with certified recycled silver and distributing our pieces with care and respect for the environment.
