Sitting at her kitchen table with a few beads and a dream, Saskatchewan designer and entrepreneur Rachel Mielke founded Hillberg & Berk in 2007. Using only the finest semi- precious stones and metals, freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals sourced from around the world, her handcrafted, artisan jewellery line is designed to last throughout time. Along with each season’s collection of jewellery, Hillberg & Berk also carries a beautiful array of luxury diamond rings, earrings and necklaces by well-known brand Tacori.
In addition to designing and selling jewellery, Hillberg & Berk is a huge supporter of charities that empower women. To date, they have contributed over $500,000 to both national and international organizations assisting women in their pursuit of greatness. These causes include the Somali Women’s Scholarship Program, Global Enrichment Foundation, Miss Representation, Dizzy Feet Foundation, International Centre for Research on Women and the Malala Fund.
In 2013, Rachel was bestowed a prestigious honour when she was commissioned by the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan to design a brooch for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. To date, the Queen has worn the brooch on four occasions. The Queen is only one of the growing number of celebrities who love Hillberg & Berk’s work, including Carrie Underwood, Sarah McLachlan, Michelle Obama, Barbara Walters and Celine Dion.
Beautiful, sophisticated and timeless.... every piece of jewellery Hillberg & Berk creates encompasses these elements. Jewellery should be a reflection of your individual style and personal refinement. We believe every woman should possess self-confidence, an optimistic outlook on life and several pieces of beautiful jewellery that she truly loves.
Practicality is also carried throughout the design philosophy of Hillberg & Berk. Many pieces can be worn several different ways, allowing for individualism and simple day-to-evening transition.
All collection jewellery is hand-crafted and created to be durable, functional, bold and classic. We believe that when people purchase our collection jewellery, they are making an investment in quality. For this reason, we warranty the Hillberg & Berk line for five years.
We are accountable to the community that fosters and supports our growth. Whether that community is local, national or worldwide, we make it part of our mandate to give back to organizations that help cultivate a brighter future for all.
