A brand for the planet
Marie Beatrice Gade is a brand for the planet and the people on it, and founded on the pillars of my own eternal quest to be as mindful and sustainable in my decisions as possible. This means choosing the harder, sometimes more expensive right over the cheaper and easier wrong without compromising on integrity, quality or authenticity.

My passion for the natural is strongly mirrored in my jewellery. I predominantly work with ECOSILVER* and ECOGOLD** in my collections, combining them with the finest NATURAL beads such as Onyx, Hematite, Obsidian, Pearls and Howlite. You will never find plastics or any other artificial elements in my work. It must always be naturally derived.
HOW I AM DIFFERENT
I only use solid metals for my work, meaning my jewellery is never filled or plated. If one of my pieces is described as 925 Sterling silver, it’s 100% that all the way through to the core, and no surprises. I choose to work with silver and gold as my staple for their durability and longevity to look amazing for many years to come so that you get what you pay for.
I primarily uses Ecosilver and Ecogold wherever possible.
Ecosilver is nickel free 925 silver made from 100% recycled remnants and grains of 925 Sterling silver.
Ecogold 9 kt is made from 100% recycled remnants and grains of 9 kt gold.
Both metals have been melted down and formed into new, solid precious metal in a fully traceable and audited process. Both Ecosilver and Ecogold have the same quality, working properties and content as its untouched origin; Sterling Silver (925) and 9ct gold (375).
*Made entirely from recycled silver remnants
**Made entirely from recycled gold remnants
To minimize the environmental impact of my business, all of my jewellery is made to order only – ensuring only what is wanted is made and waste can be kept to a minimum. All the materials I use have been sourced for their environmental impact, which is an ongoing process to constantly improve as science evolves. All packaging material are made from 100% biodegradable materials - leaving no trace if you sort it properly.
The classic foam insert is always replaced by hand cut boiled wool and natural box filler, making the contents 100% natural and biodegradable.
HANDMADE & ETHICAL
I want to restore the deeper meaning behind traditionally crafted jewellery, and honour both the craft and my clients by perfecting every last stroke by hand. I believe jewellery should have value and meaning to its owner, so I create with the intention of keeping and stay mindful of my design aesthetic to ensure its diversity to match every outfit in your closet. By keeping production local and made by these two happy hands, I can proudly say that I know what my products are made of and how.
Investing in a piece of my jewellery is not only an investment in keeping the art of traditional craftsmanship alive and caring for the environment whilst doing so, but most importantly it is an investment in You. I pride myself in taking time to handmake each piece for my clients, because I believe the unique characteristics created in that process only adds value.
I personally handmake every piece of jewellery specifically for its buyer from start to finish in my studio in Denmark. This allows each piece to bear its own unique characteristics and story, which sets it apart from all the others of the same design.
Every indentation, every stroke, every cut is specific to your piece and cannot be repeated. I believe that making each piece by hand creates a personal bond between the designer and the client, and being able to see the indentations made by the designer lets you know that a person made that – not a machine. You instantly feel connected to the two hands who made it for you, and start to value the hours that went into perfecting every last detail.
I find beauty in individuality and want to celebrate yours by making you something just as individual and unique as you are.
