"Greenlandic jewellery makes a good gift or souvenir."

Beautiful memories

Greenlandic jewellery makes a good gift or souvenir. You not only take a piece of Greenlandic natural and cultural history home with you, but you will also have a piece of jewellery that can remind you of an eventful journey.

Jewellery from Greenland has a lifelike expression since it is primarily made of bone, claws, reindeer points, teeth and soapstone. The inspiration for the design comes chiefly from Greenland's wildlife and original culture, and as all Greenlandic jewellery is handmade, each item is a unique work of art.

Greenlandic precious stones

Greenlandic precious stones are popular, and you will find that the most attractive and rarest are of the tugtupit type, which is pink or reddish violet.

The only place in the world the stone is found is at Narsaq in Southern Greenland, and it is therefore a real curio amongst collectors.

Other stones worthy of mention include the nuummit stone which is dark brown and shiny, and the grønlanditten, which has a fresh green hue.

Greenlandic Arts & Crafts

Jewellery made in Greenland is often marked with a stamp of authenticity called "Greenlandic Arts & Crafts".

Please be aware of the rules concerning the export of items from animal species threatened with extinction.

If you choose to buy an item of jewellery that requires an export permit, then ask for a CITES certificate at the point of sale. This document ensures that you can take your Greenlandic jewellery home with you.
