It all began in 1983 when two Danes – Annemette Markvad and Thomas Adamsen – translated their unique empathy and innovative energy into designing jewellery, sold mainly at festivals. With a great love of music and people, they created jewellery that reflected their 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. From the beginning, we had two key missions. One was to create beautiful jewellery that makes you feel beautiful. The other was to build a workplace where every employee enjoyed coming to work and where respect, responsibility and trust were cherished values put into practice each day.” – Annemette Markvad, Founder
