Combining contemporary Scandinavian design and artistic heritage, Swedish jewellery designer Charlotte Bonde creates a radiant blend of the past and the future.
Over half a century ago, Charlotte’s mother was raised in the family business designing women’s clothing and running the famous Ohlssons Fashion Store in Malmø, Sweden.
The patterns and fabrics dated back to this time serve as an important source of inspiration for Charlotte, as well as iconic Swedish silversmith Wiwen Nilsson, known for his geometric and timeless designs. After completing silversmith HND courses in London, Charlotte Bonde opened her exclusive shop in Stockholm and today she continues to illuminate the artisan family tree.

”…The AW16 Heritage Collection part I is inspired by the childhood memories of studying the portraits of the androgynous men and women, the glorious fashion of the 18th century and exploring what it meant that both genders equally expressed themselves through fashion. This collection is designed for and dedicated equally to men and women…”
With bold, sovereign jewellery embracing individuality, Charlotte Bonde incorporates the family tradition of designing for women. Her love affair with oriental architecture, with its graphic elements and rich designs, is another strong influence. While always, highlighting vintage semi-precious stones, Charlotte Bonde’s craftsmanship is searingly modern, marrying the classic with the contemporary.
Yet today Charlotte Bonde continues to illuminate the artisan family tree with her designs and boutique, the heart of the brand, where all the collections are gathered and the creative process begins.
