Jewelry that matters – the original!
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity” - On 10 December 1948 the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" (UDHR) was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations.
A world in peace and friendship – what a dream! Unfortunately, today, we deal with war, crisis and epidemics on our valuable planet. We should, together and each one on their own, try to live in friendship and harmony with others, without regard for their skin colour, origin or religion. It sounds easy, but we all witness how difficult it can be.
On 10 December 1948 the UN proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It has inspired us to design jewelry, which can be worn by everyone, on every occasion, reminding the bearer and his or her surroundings of the high value of human rights. As a company, we not only fashion beautiful jewelry with a deep meaning, but we also financially support organizations internationally, such as “Human Rights Watch”, which campaigns for human rights worldwide.
The declaration contains a commitment to personal rights such as the right to life and physical integrity, freedom from torture, body and flogging and liberties as the individual's right to liberty, property, security of person, freedom of expression, thought, conscience and religion.
The GILARDY Human Rights collection is made of incorruptible stainless steel and it is available in high polished silver steel, black Ruthenium, 18K Yellow- and Pink-Gold plating. The collection includes rings, charms, wristbands and bracelets.
The fine stainless steel, which we use for this precious and unique jewelry line, is highly robust and enduring. Furthermore it stands for the best dermatological agreeability and is, following EU norms, free of nickel. The rings, as well as the engravings are largely fashioned in German manufactures, which teach and employ disabled people. Thus, each ring, charm or bracelet is uniquely handcrafted and full of meaning. You do not just wear a beautiful piece of jewelry, but you can show other people that you care with a bold statement.
The "U"-Campaign - become part of the Human Rights Community!
We accompany the Human Rights Collection with a distinctive finger sign, which is easy to remember and doable for everyone. It is the letter U in sign language. U stands for YOU. As you are part of humanity, you should stand up for human rights. If you don’t stand up for yourself, who will? Each one of us counts, as each one of us is a valuable and important part of society. Post pictures with the finger sign U on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. with #gilardyjewels and let the Human Rights Community grow. Human Rights concern everybody!
The collection includes different styles of rings, pendants and bracelets as well as leather wristbands in 19 fashionable colours. For more information and an overview of the collection, please click here.
