The treasures right in front of you
Sunbathing on your stomach. Walking along the shore. Out on the sea with the boat. We have all collected them–beach stones. With our collection Strand (“beach”), we want to highlight the treasures of the beach–created millions of years ago and, now, carefully shaped to be worn as jewellery. They wear their millions of years well. Every smooth little stone is a memory from the creation of the Earth and its dramatic history, worn down by ice, wind and water.
We have let Johnny Juthman, a lapidary from Övermark, take on the stones from Lumparn’s beach to create pearls in the gentle colour palette of the beach. At Guldviva, we’ve added an oxidized, 925 Sterling Silver setting.

Nature is greater than our webshop
After the first summer that we launched Strand, we have learned that all of nature’s stones are equally beautiful. We really want to offer the collection in our webshop, but only as long as you understand that you will receive a random colour and colour combination. If you would prefer to choose your Strand jewellery yourself, we will welcome you into our shop in Mariehamn’s Maritime Quarter on Åland.
The standard chain is an oxidized snake chain, 70 cm in length
Sustainability and quality go hand-in-hand. Classic design, climate-smart material and the possibility to repair something when it falls apart are important factors to consider when you purchase a product, for example, a piece of jewellery from Guldviva. This is what we at Guldviva do to ensure that your jewellery is made to last.
Every piece of Guldviva jewellery is made by hand in our own workshop in the Maritime Quarter in Mariehamn on Åland. This guarantees high-quality, professional, solid craftsmanship.
All of our jewellery is produced from solid precious metals; it is never filled with other metals or hollow. Even the chains that come with our jewellery, but which we don’t produce ourselves, are of the highest quality, in either 925 sterling silver or 18K gold.
The only base materials we use are either nickel-free 925 sterling silver or 18K gold. We aspire to a completely sustainable production process and today we only use 100 per cent recycled metal.
Your Guldviva jewellery is designed and made to last and to be handed down through the generations. This is why we have a lifetime warranty on all of our jewellery and repair all damages which arise from eventual mistakes in production. We will even be happy to repair damages which arise from wear-and-tear or accidents, but for the price of the normal cost of labour.
POLISHING AND RESTORATION
Silver and gold are metals which endure forever, but the jewellery you wear will often take on signs of frequent use. For this reason, we offer a free professional polishing of all Guldviva jewellery. For example, we can roll the jewellery in a drum with polishing beads, reapply the surface finish by hand and, if necessary, reapply antique treatments. Your jewellery will be like new again.
