30 years from the heart
It all began in 1983 when two Danes – Annemette Markvad and Thomas Adamsen – translated their unique empathy and innovative energy into jewellery design, sold mainly at festivals.
Their love of music and people expressed itself through the design, reflecting deeply held values of spontaneity, intimacy and authenticity. Pilgrim jewellery was, and remains, truly of the moment.
“Thomas and I were not business people, and we began Pilgrim very much from the heart.
We have always had two key aims: to create beautiful jewellery that makes you feel beautiful. And to create a workplace where everyone enjoys coming to work and where words like respect, responsibility and trust are cherished concepts put into practice.
Pilgrim is all about going out and seeking new things, new ways, and new journeys. It’s not only the destination that matters, but also how you get there.
We have since become an international brand. High quality on-trend design is the cornerstone of our company, and with 6 collections a year we deliver handmade jewellery, timepieces and sunglasses to more than 45 countries around the world.
Our finger is firmly on fashion’s pulse and our heart is very much still part of Pilgrim.
