Materials, Design & Philosophy
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.
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. Our jewelry is 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 jewelry sold with the Non-Violence symbol finances violence preventive education to people in the risk zone and contributes to a more peaceful world.

RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES
We use recycled plastic 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 recycle 500.000 plastic bottles into ropes for our bracelets.
