Behind Ortak, Managing Director Michael Gardens and fellow Director Alison Firth, stand a highly skilled work force with over 200 years combined expertise in jewellery manufacturing. It is with this considerable experience and a hardworking team that our business could help further yours.

Ortak prides itself in the manufacturing processes we now carry out. Every piece of jewellery is hand-crafted in Orkney and sent onto its future owners with pride. We use the most up to date equipment along with skilled craftspeople to create beautiful jewellery.

Ortak also provides services to other jewellery manufacturers by means of waxing, casting and finishing as required.

We offer a full bespoke design service where master patterns or one-off pieces can be created from a drawing or a sketch. They can then be transformed into personally designed items of jewellery for you or your clients. Our enamelled ranges can also be produced in colours to match almost any colourways.

Ortak’s fully equipped modern workshop is situated in the City & Royal Burgh of Kirkwall. Its location, in the beautiful Orkney Islands, is open to visitors and one on one consultations alike. Come along and see for yourself and you can be sure of a very warm welcome.
