Each stone we use for our collections is sourced locally. Since there is no mass market for polish minerals and stones, in attempting to find each we sought help from private collectors to geologists who locate these unique examples.
Stones are our inspiration and the centre element of most of our jewellery designs. All of the minerals we use captivates us in some way - by its colour, history or symbolism.
Care for the environment has been one of our top priorities since we started our journey with Kamena. We make our best to ensure that our production and packaging are environmentally friendly. We seek to use recycled and biodegradable materials as much as possible.
