This is how Kalevala Jewelry was born

Kalevala Jewelry was founded at the end of the 1930s at the initiative of the writer Elsa Heporauta. She wanted to build a statue in honor of a Finnish woman - at that time, statues were mostly made for men. In order to obtain funding, jewelry that imitated the historical antique jewelry was made and sold. The jewelry became a success. When the Winter War broke out, the statue project was postponed and the money from the jewelry was used to support women and children.

In Kalevala Jewelry's heritage, women have always been active social actors. Kalevala Jewelry's CEO has always been a woman, and the Kalevala Women's Association, a cultural organization founded by women, still owns Kalevala Jewelry.
