The gold – and silverfactory Arven offers a wide range of beautiful silverware and unique jewelry, all handcrafted and made in the heart Bergen.
Arven’s gold and silver factory is the place to buy Norwegian design. Our jewellery, pieces of interior design and silver cutlery are hand-made and manufactured on the premises.
You can watch our goldsmiths and silversmiths at work through a 40 metre long glass wall in our shop. A visit here is a real experience.
Arven’s production facilities have been based in Bergen city centre for 150 years, and we are now in an historic setting, behind Bryggen, between St Mary’s Church and Bergenhus Fortress.
Our huge and powerful press machines stamp out new treasures here every day. The whole shop actually rumbles and shakes when the machinery is operating. You can watch the production process at close quarters, and see how our silversmiths and goldsmiths work with jewellery, pieces of interior design and silver cutlery. Arven is now a modern and innovative factory. As well as our classics, we are continuously developing exciting products through new design partnerships. Andreas Engesvik, Lars Beller Fjetland and Lars Tornøe are Norwegian designers with whom Arven is proud to be working. The Liv candlestick and Monstera salad servers are excellent examples of what you can achieve by working with talented specialists to combine modern design with craftsmanship and technique.
Arven has also been working with the world-famous star Kygo on some exciting pieces. We share with him an unwavering belief in craftsmanship and quality, and a passion for heritage and roots. When the king of tropical house wanted to create a piece of jewellery, what else could it be but a palm tree? It was an obvious choice for the lad from Bergen to put his design into the experienced and dedicated hands of Arven.
If you want to buy Norwegian design and treat yourself to a genuine experience, you should pop in and see us. All the staff at Arven will be delighted to welcome you to Sandbrogaten 11 - Bergen.
You can also buy our products at major jewellers all over the country and on our online shop. We deliver anywhere in the world.
