DEAR DARLING BERLIN
RESPONSIBLE FINE JEWELRY
FOR BEAUTIFUL & CONSCIOUS MINDS.
DEAR DARLING BERLIN is a Responsible Fine Jewelry brand for modern basics, carefully crafted with mostly sustainable materials in Germany. A sense of aesthetics, sustainable materials and timeless design. That is what defines us. Our fine jewelry is manufactured with mostly recycled sterling silber in small, family-run businesses in Germany.
Our jewelry can be worn more than just one season. Classic, minimal, modern. Mix & Match or go solo - you can easily combine all of our beautiful necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings to find your perfect match.
BETTER FOR YOU & THE ENVIRONMENT
Dear Darling Berlin was founded in 2020 by Lisa Zaiser to make the jewelry industry a little more sustainable and the business world a little more feminine.
Sounds like a cliché? The jewelry industry is one of the largest and most complex in the world. From the extraction of raw materials in the mines to production and sale, there are countless companies that are part of the cycle.
Three of the biggest challenges of the industry is facing is the transparency of supply chains, ensuring safe working conditions and the fair payment of everyone involved.
We believe that beautiful things shouldn't just shine on the outside. That is why we are committed to sustainable, responsible jewelry production.
For us, sustainability is not a fashion trend, but an essential part of our corporate values and processes.
The jewelry market is still dominated by seasonal jewelry made from cheaper materials and high-priced luxury brands. The vast majority is produced in distant foreign countries and the long supply chain makes it difficult to control the quality of the products. Also, ensuring good working conditions and fair payment for all involved are big challenges here.
We want to get away from the fast pace of the fashion industry and towards more slow-fashion, transparency, sustainability and affordable quality.
Responsible Fine Jewelry means that our jewelry is crafted under fair conditions, with high-quality and mostly sustainable materials in Germany.
EMPOWERED WOMEN EMPOWER WOMEN
Hi, I am Lisa, the founder of Dear Darling Berlin. Did you know that only 16% of all startups in Germany are female founded?
I'm a passionate entrepreneur - not just since I founded my own company. I've always enjoyed taking responsibility for new projects and loved creating new things.
As a founder, I am constantly learning how important it is to be courageous and to trust in yourself. To say goodbye to your perfectionism and just get it started.
Dear Darling Berlin is more than just a wonderful, sustainable jewelry label. I want to create an inspirational platform for other female founders.
In our format "Female Founder Stories" we introduce a new female founder, her vision and her company every month. We share experiences on the topics of self-employment, start-ups, female entrepreneurship and much more. Always included: helpful and practical tips for your own career and personal life.
For us, responsible fine jewelry means: jewelry made from mostly sustainable materials, responsible production, transparent and short supply chains.
We work with manufacturers who are certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC). The RJC is an international association of companies from the jewelry and watch industry and aims to establish more sustainability, transparency and security in the jewelry industry through uniform standards.
The RJC and its members undertake to strengthen responsible, ethical, social and eco friendly working methods in the jewelry industry - from mine to retailer - in a transparent and understandable way and thus to create more trust for everyone involved.
Our jewelry is made with mostly sustainable sterling silver in small, family-run businesses in Germany with over 40 years of experience.
WHAT INSPIRES US
Berlin is a city full of contrasts. There is no other place where can you find this much living past and exciting future at the same time. Old monuments next to modern architecture, large companies and young, ambitious startups. Art and culture or party and nightlife?
There is no either or in Berlin.
You don't have to decide.
You can be, whoever you want to be and do, whatever you like to do.
Inspired by this big city spirit, DEAR DARLING was created with the desire to share this valuable message with you. Our style is unique - just like you.
