For Arild Links it's imperative to do our outmost to ensure that the precious metal and stones we use are ethical and green. If you’re not cautious when buying gold, silver or stones you increase your risk of buying illegally produced or even stolen material. The black market for precious metals is a big problem and that's why we only work with certified partners so you can rest assure that our material is carefully chosen in order to clean up the industry.
Arild Links purchases gold, silver and diamonds according to the following principles: https://www.kimberleyprocess.com.
Humanium Metal is a statement beyond any other precious metal.
Created from destructed illegal firearms taken off the streets and
melted into a resource for a new purpose. There are millions of
illegal firearms, paradoxically Humanium Metal is to this date rarer than gold.
All our designs made from this resource are labelled with the symbol Hu. They are embodied with history, and by wearing one you take a stand against violence and contribute to security for people living in areas affected by high levels of crime.
Arild Links has a long term commitment to support the Non-Violence project. Throughout the years Non-Violence has educated and trained more than 8 million youth, teachers and sports coaches around the world in how to solve conflicts peacefully. Each of our jewellery sold with the Non-Violence symbol finances violence preventive education to people in the risk zone and contributes to a more peaceful world.

We use PET-rope from responsibly recycled PET-bottles which we’ve given a new purpose instead of polluting the environment or burnt, releasing CO2 into our atmosphere. Recycling is a conscious act and a powerful symbol to encourage all of us to re-purpose the resources already existing rather than producing new material.
We have contributed to 500 000 PET-bottles becoming, among other things, ropes for our bracelets.
A visual language of charms
Since the dawn of civilisation, there have been means of communication, of which the earliest known are mythical symbols preserved in carvings or painted deep inside caves. Inspired by the vast history of expression, Arild Links has created a visual language of charms infused with a rebellious spirit for modern civilisation. Use your creativity to combine charms into a story to tell, or a secret to keep.
Our design philosophy
We create for diversity, and our designs are works of art where you must participate to give them personal meaning. Freedom of expression; it runs through our veins and shines through in our work.
