Bound Studios isn't just a brand; it's a journey that began in my early years, listening to my mother's tales of the expansive jewelry industry throughout Europe. From those tender moments at the age of 4, a passion for jewelry was sown.

As the years progressed, so did my aspirations. By the time I was 10, I was already envisioning a future as a fashion designer. Attending multiple fashion camps at such a young age only fueled that ambition.

Fast forward to my teenage years, where a significant shift occurred—I embraced a devoted vegan lifestyle. For nearly 5 years, sustainability became a core principle, and my understanding of our planet's challenges deepened.

Now, with over 5 years of experience melding these aspects—jewelry, fashion, and sustainability—we present Bound Studios. Our focus is on sustainable jewelry that marries premium aesthetics with a minimized environmental footprint.

Part of our commitment involves more than just jewelry; it's about giving back to nature. For every order placed, we plant two trees—a small act contributing to a greener planet. 


Welcome to BOUND STUDIOS, a jewelry brand powered by women. Discover our range of sustainable, bold, modern, and elegant designs—your go-to for European-made craftsmanship. Our jewelers are the 5th generation running the studio & you can see this quality back in our designs. All our jewelers are paid fairly, so our sustainable jewelry is good karma jewelry guaranteed
At the heart of our brand is a commitment to sustainable yet high-quality materials. We utilize recycled sterling silver and offer premium 18k gold plating. To ensure longevity, our silver rings are rhodium-plated to prevent oxidation. Our gold plated rings boast a substantial 3 micron layer of 18k gold—3-6 times more than standard gold plated rings.
Not really into sterling silver nor gold vermeil, we offer most of our designs in solid 14k gold. These future vintage pieces are made to order in Portugal. 
We strive to make your shopping experience enjoyable and personal. Immerse yourself in our timeless designs, all backed by a reassuring 2-year warranty. Bound Studios: Where sustainability meets style, and every piece tells a unique story.
Hypoallergenic jewelry. For the modern conscious humans.


At BOUND STUDIOS, we've taken up the mantle for climate action, pledging to be a low-impact online jewelry brand. Our dedication is evident in every aspect of our production since 2018:

European Craftsmanship and Recycled Materials • We manufacture all our pieces in Europe using recycled sterling silver, reducing waste and environmental strain.

Environmentally Friendly Packaging • Our commitment extends to our packaging, which is entirely plastic-free, minimizing our ecological footprint and made in Europe.

Cruelty-Free • We're passionate about animal welfare, reflected in our choice to avoid any materials derived from animals, such as pearls (Yes, oysters are animals), feathers, or leather.

Ethically Sourced Metals and Gemstones • Our premium recycled metals and sustainably sourced gemstones are obtained through ethical means, ensuring no harm to living beings or our planet.

For us, sustainability encompasses more than just materials—it's a philosophy:

Quality Over Quantity • We reject the ethos of fast fashion, instead focusing on creating enduring, sustainable pieces that suit every occasion.

Our sustainable jewelry is designed to be cherished, with an emphasis on using recycled materials and being a plastic-free brand. For those who favor timeless over trend.

We care about your preferences too! If you prefer to skip a jewelry box, polish cloth, or a personal note, simply let us know in the comments before placing your order.

At BOUND STUDIOS, sustainability is not just a word; it's a promise, a lifestyle, and a future we envision together.
