the founders of bound studios wearing sustainable jewelry such as silver earrings, silver rings for men and women of any age


"For years, I searched for actually good looking sustainable jewelry, but the options were either outdated vintage pieces or quirky handmade items using materials like wood and feathers. As a lover of classic silver earrings and comfortable gold jewelry designs during summer, I felt torn between my personal style and my desire to minimize my environmental impact on the fashion industry. This disconnect fueled my passion to create a brand that addressed both style and sustainability. So, I founded BOUND, a sustainable jewelry collection where timeless design meets premium quality and ethical practices from start to finish. Merging the best of both modern eclectic minimalism & ethical artisan quality from start to finish. I'm thrilled to share it with you!"

We took the responsibility and logic to consciously create a brand with designs that beat the fleeting trends from this day and age.

A brand for the conscious modern mind.

For us, it didn't make sense to drill in our planet earth to get the materials that are already available to us in a recycled form.

It also doesn't make sense to navigate mass productions in Asia as we're based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

That is why our jewelers are the 5th generation running the studio in Portugal & you can see this quality back in our designs. All our jewelers are paid fairly, so your sustainable jewelry is good karma jewelry guaranteed. 

At the heart of our brand is a commitment to serve those who
appreciate luxury and premium quality yet are willing to take accountability & choose ethical over trend. We utilize ethical and recycled materials. To ensure longevity, our silver rings & other silver jewelry are rhodium-plated to prevent oxidation. Our gold plated rings are plated with a 3 micron layer of 18k gold — which is 3-6 times more than standard gold plated rings.

We strive to make your shopping experience enjoyable and personal. While you're shopping with us, you're backed by a reassuring 2-year warranty & lifetime of 5 star support.


BOUND isn't just a jewelry webshop - it's a jewelry brand a commitment to responsible crafting and mindful consumption.

Since 2020, we've woven sustainability into every thread of our journey, offering stunning pieces that stand the test of time without compromising our planet's well-being.

European craftsmanship & recycled materials: Each piece is carefully crafted in Portugal using recycled sterling silver for our silver hoop earrings and other silver jewelry - and recycled gold for our gold plated and solid gold jewelry, minimizing waste and reducing our environmental impact. This provides a lower carbon footprint (about 92% less) and responsible resource management.

Our commitment extends beyond the jewelry itself by offering our sustainable jewelry in European made plastic-free packaging. The only plastic we use is mini plastic ziplock bags that we've been reusing for over 3 years now.

Cruelty-free pinky promise.
Compassion is at the heart of our brand. We proudly don't use materials derived from animals, such as pearls (oysters are living beings too), feathers, or leather, ensuring no harm comes to living beings in our pursuit of ethical luxury.

Lab grown gemstones:  We believe in ensuring the well-being of our planet and its inhabitants, reflected in every step of our sourcing process. Using recycled materials and lab grown crystals to leave the mines and therefor our planet alone.

We reject the fleeting trends of fast fashion, instead focusing on creating lasting, sustainable pieces that transcend seasons and occasions. Each piece is designed to be cherished, crafted with intention and built to last.

We understand that everyone's journey to sustainability is unique. If you prefer to minimize packaging waste, simply let us know when placing your order, and we'll happily skip the jewelry box, polish cloth, and/or personal note.

For us is sustainability a lifestyle, and a future we actively co-create with our community. By choosing BOUND, you're not just getting stunning jewelry; you're joining a movement for a more responsible and beautiful world.

Let's rewrite the narrative of fashion, one timeless piece at a time.

"BOUND STUDIOS isn't just a brand; it's a journey that began in my early years, listening to my mother's tales of working in the jewelry industry throughout Europe.

As the years progressed, so did my aspirations - being obsessed with aesthetics (still). By the time I was 10, I was already envisioning a future as a fashion designer. Attending fashion camps at such a young age only fueled that ambition.

Fast forward to my teenage years, where a significant shift occurred—I was living a devoted vegan lifestyle. For nearly 5 years, sustainability became a core principle, and my understanding of our planet's challenges deepened. This time I was desperate for good looking sustainable fashion - especially jewelry.

To now, with years of experience melding these aspects — jewelry, fashion, and sustainability — I 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 our beloved planet we get to call our home. For every order placed, we plant 2 trees — a small act contributing to a greener planet. "
