Ortak Jewellery

Ortak Jewellery has historic origins with handcrafted jewellery being made in Kirkwall, Orkney since 1967.  In 2017 we celebrate our ‘Golden’ anniversary with 50 years of handcrafted silver jewellery.

Based in The Royal Burgh of Kirkwall, Orkney, each piece of unique handcrafted jewellery is made by the skilled craftspeople here in our workshop.  We have our retail outlets and workshop based in Kirkwall, with the opportunity to buy silver jewellery online, along with all our collections.

Our staff have over 200 years’ experience between them making our handcrafted silver jewellery and by offering silver jewellery online, along with our gold jewellery and enamelled jewellery, we feel we are bringing a small bit of Orkney to everyone.

The colours in our jewellery is using the technique of hot glass enamel, each piece is hand crafted with the crushed glass hand painted into each, making every piece unique.  This allows many variations to your jewellery giving the colour of your choice in your favourite piece of jewellery.

The inspiration for each range of our jewellery created is inspired from the amazing landscapes and colours around our beautiful home the Orkney Islands.
