Inspired by nature and indigenous people, No 13 creates handmade, designer jewellery from recycled materials and ethically-sourced gemstones - welcome to our world of ethical luxury.
We work with indigenous artisans who live in some of the remotest and endangered places on the planet to bring you the most original and contemporary designs.
Our values include sustainability, social responsibility, excellence and integrity – with all our pieces being handmade from recycled silver and gold in our Hatton Garden, London studio by our small team of master goldsmiths. We use reclaimed materials and ethically sourced gemstones and our packaging is made from recycled card. These values are really important to us as we wanted to create a business that does as little harm to the planet as possible, whilst knowing exactly where and how each of our pieces are made.
Our first collection was inspired and handmade in collaboration with Sami Artisans who inhabit the Arctic Circle. Our aim was to create a modern twist on ancient Sami styles, and in doing so make something luxurious, beautiful and sustainably-sourced.
Reindeer antlers are shed naturally and harvested by the Sami people once a year. You can see our Sami carver at work along with his beautiful herd of reindeer above. Sixten is a true craftsman with over 40 years experience in reindeer shepherding and scrimshaw carving. He hand carves each reindeer antler cabochon to our specifications, then etches with ancient Sami patterns and inlays with india ink and silver to bring out the detailing.
Since launching our brand in 2016 we've been lucky enough to feature in Vogue, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Grazia and The Telegraph to name a few. Plus No 13 was voted into Professional Jeweller Magazine's 'Collection of the Year' finalists.
We hope you enjoy wearing our jewellery as much as we did making and creating it for you.
