The year 2017 is a year of great celebration for Finland. The year is special also for Kalevala Jewelry - eighty years ago, Kalevala Jewelry was born out of the courage of women and a desire to celebrate Finnish women. To celebrate the 80th anniversary, the Kalevala Jewelry proudly presents the touring exhibition "Bold. Contemporary. Genuine. 80 years of Finland’s best-loved jewellery".

Kalevala Jewelry’s exhibition introduces the history of the company and it’s role in Finnish society over the decades.

“Eighty years ago, Kalevala Jewelry was born out of the courage of women and a desire to celebrate Finnish women. On the occasion of our anniversary, we want to encourage all women to believe in themselves and their opportunities.“

Kalevala Jewelry is a rare exception, as they make all their pieces at the factory in Helsinki. Before leaving the factory, every piece of jewellery is handled by approximately 16 skilled professionals.  Kalevala Jewelry has strong values and from the very beginning, they have endeavoured to share the results of what they  have achieved, and have always been involved in charity initiatives.

In Kalevala Jewelry, they use recycled silver and gold, and all the production processes have been streamlined with a view to recycling and the environment. Kalevala Jewelry works to maintain traditional Finnish craftsmanship.

Designing jewellery takes passion, vision and the boldness to create something new. At Kalevala Jewelry this has been done since 1937.

The exhibition tours in Oulu, Jyväksylä, Kuopio, Espoo, Rovaniemi and Lappeenranta. It’s produced by Kalevala Jewelry.
