Our Values: Crafting Unique and Responsible Jewelry
Sustainable Creation with Recycled Silver at Its Core
At Kaldera, we are committed to sustainability in every piece we create. Our entire jewelry collection is crafted from recycled silver, sourced from old silver jewelry, our own samples, unsold items, and even from discarded electronic devices. This silver is locally sourced in Indonesia, near our Bali workshop and on the island of Java, ensuring a minimal environmental footprint.
No Mass Production: Mindful Crafting
We believe in producing responsibly, which is why we maintain a low inventory and craft our pieces based on your specific demands and orders. This approach allows us to avoid waste and ensures that each piece of jewelry is made with care and purpose.
Eco-Friendly Packaging: Minimalist and Effective
We say no to plastic! Our commitment to eco-responsibility extends to our packaging. We use bubble envelopes for maximum protection, and each piece of jewelry is delivered in a simple yet elegant Kaldera envelope with a velvet pouch. This minimalist packaging is not only beautiful but also reduces our carbon footprint.
The "Anti-Gemstone" Philosophy: Embracing Lava Stone
The term "gemstone" often brings to mind controversies and scandals that contradict our philosophy. Instead, we focus on unique designs and use lava stone as an ornament in our collections. Lava stone's colors and textures perfectly complement our silver designs, creating a harmonious blend of elegance and raw beauty.
Handcrafted with Passion
Our jewelry-making process avoids the use of molds. Each design is conceived to be handcrafted, reflecting our belief that jewelry should be timeless and last a lifetime. By handcrafting each piece, we ensure that every creation is distinct and unique, embodying the essence of individuality and enduring style.
