STORY BY RACHEL SCHWARTZMANN – SHOP CAROLINE HJERPE – PHOTOS BY LOUISE CECILIA PALMBERG FOR THE STYLE LINE
Stockholm-based jewelry designer Caroline Hjerpe
proves that anything is possible if you’re willing to put the work in. Since launching her eponymous brand in 2014, the self-taught talent has cultivated her ambition and love of transitional/well-crafted design to build a brand that caters to modern women globally. In fact, we first became aware of Caroline’s refined pieces via our friends at Tictail, and have followed Caroline’s endeavors since.
Handcrafted in Stockholm at her adorable shop in the equally adorable Södermalm neighborhood, Caroline works hard to design collections that appeal to a variety of modern women. While many of her pieces are delicate by nature, it’s also worth noting that there is a sense of fun and character that shines through as well (take the Axel’s Tooth and Burger rings for example). As Caroline aptly mentioned in our interview below, “Women who come to us are often powerful, encouraging, feminists who stand up for them selves and love to show it! It’s true, really, which is easy to see when looking at the pieces. Many rings are conversation starters – like the burger, the Kimberly series, the diamond and the clover – it is something that doesn’t pass by without notice.”
With that being said, we’re thrilled to share more from our inspiring visit with Caroline who kindly allowed us to peruse the shop and chatted more about being self-made and life in Stockholm. Discover the full conversation below, featuring exclusive photos from our time together captured by Louise Cecilia Palmberg for The Style Line.

I am Caroline, 28 years old,
and I live in Stockholm. I love to travel, see new places, taste new things, and get inspired by people and architecture and I wish to travel as much as I can. I value friendships, family and new experiences – like now in September I’m going by myself to Spain to do a pilgrim hike for 300km, and that kind of thing really feels good to me. And of course, my most important thing in life is my little Wilma, my dog who is both a pain in the ass but mostly absolutely wonderful.
