Ordbord is a premium silver jewelry brand based in Helsinki, Finland. All products are designed in Helsinki, crafted with care by a local fourth generation workshop, and hand finished by a goldsmith. The jewelry designs are inspired by the texts of women writers and thinkers. These meaningful accessories follow their wearer along their day, garnering new meanings with every new surrounding. The designs do not interpret the words but rather let them speak for themselves.
The name Ordbord combines the Swedish words “ord” (a word) and “bord” (a table). It evokes the famous surfaces on which great poems, stories, scientific discoveries, and philosophical arguments were set down in ink. The desks of Dickinson, Austen, Woolf, and more were venues for craft and beauty, a practice Ordbord celebrates. Ordbord integrates sustainability and social responsibility into its production. The sterling silver pendants are designed and produced within a 30km radius, reducing wasteful logistics. The company accordingly promotes local businesses. A local fourth-generation workshop casts each piece, and a neighbouring goldsmith hand-finishes them. Ordbord aims to uphold these values of sustainability and responsibility in every decision and review of operations.
