A piece of jewellery can literally change your life. A simple gold band symbolises a lifetime with the one you love. An eternity ring is given as a promise of friendship forever. A broken coin pendant gives great comfort, no matter how many miles you are separated by. There is a very strong tradition of independent jewellery makers in Stockholm, blending modern and traditional designs. You can buy something with real meaning, whilst supporting local professional and craft jewellers in this inspirational city.
