Wear Swedish summer all year around and show off your values with this upcycled Berså Necklace that features the iconic green Berså leaf.  This necklace is a timeless interpretation of the beauty of nature, combined with modern design.  Lush greenery that never fades.

Sägen is a high-end sustainable jewelry company with a story.  New mother Elin Sigrén started making jewelry in the garage of her childhood home outside of Visby on the Swedish island of Gotland.  Now based in Malmö, Sägen's focus is on creating new designs from already existing materials to make a smaller impact on our planet as one of its core values. Every piece is handmade and set in recycled silver by highly skilled craftsmen. 

The Berså Necklace is made of recycled sterling silver and upcycled porcelain (from Swedish porcelain manufacturer Gustavsberg). Upcycling is fashion forward.  This classic leaf decor was designed in 1961 by Stig Lindberg for Gustavsberg and has since then become one of Sweden's most beloved patterns. 
Material: Recycled silver and porcelain.
Size porcelain: 14x16 mm 21x23 mm 29x31 mm
Size Necklace: 149 mm in diameter (Adjustable chain 60 mm)

Care instructions: Silver becomes more beautiful the more you use it. It's durable and over time the surface acquires an elegant patinated finish. If you want to keep the high shine finish, you can clean and polish the silver with a silver-polish. Porcelain is a durable and tolerant material. It’s water-resistant and also subsists the silver-polish. Handle your Sägen jewelry with common sense like any of your favorite things.
