5 Reasons to Gift Your Valentine a Nordgreen Accessory

Haven't found the perfect, romantic V-Day gift yet? Find out here why an accessory by Nordgreen will work just as well as Cupid's arrow.

If you’re not wearing them already, it might be time to put your rose-colored glasses on! With Valentine’s Day at our doorstep, we find ourselves scrambling through tacky trinkets, cheap chocolates and red roses to find a present that actually does our partner and the love we feel for them justice. Not to suck the fun out of being a hopeless, slightly materialistic romantic, but of course there’s a downside to the mass, heart-shaped commerce this day inevitably leads to – which is why we consider it all the more important to point toward brands and products that are actually worth their money and that your loved one will actually treasure for a long time. 

Nordgreen is one of those brands. The Danish accessory start-up initially made waves with its responsible watches, before breaking into eyewear and jewelry territories, respectively. Something all of these characteristically Scandinavian-made product lines have in common, is that by purchasing them, the customer also gets to donate a share of what they paid for the piece to a benevolent organization of their choosing. So, treating your significant other to a new timepiece, pair of shades or necklace means that you’re also contributing to causes related to education, rain forrest protection, or clean water infrastructures in developing countries. That said, this article will show you how to declare your affection with a physical present – guilt free, at reduces prices!


Choose your favorite watch model and strap, and add up to two additional, interchangeable straps to perfect your very own, personalized accessory kit.

Or choose from amongst Nordgreen’s pre-curated combinations,
for him and for her. Free shipping included!

5 Reasons Why Nordgreen Should Make Your X-Mas Shopping List:

1. They’ve Made Longevity A Priority


Quality is key at Nordgreen, so the company has taken every measure known to make sure their customers are satisfied with their goods for as long as possible – quite in contrast to some of their quick-fix-reliant peers. Their accessory collections are made with Sapphire crystal, stainless steel, bio-acetate, brass and even diamonds, and every watch, piece of jewelry or pair of shades comes with a 2 year warranty. The site also offers detailed guides on how to best maintain your new companions. Their newest family member, the Guardian, is even said to have been made to last for up to 100 years. 

This endurance pertains to the manufacturing and materials of the watches as much as it does to the aesthetics of Nordgreen. Even new iterations of core collection pieces – like recently added colorways, crystal embellishments or Clous de Paris textures for watch dials – are kept subtle enough to add edge without falling victim to superfluous fads, which, in turn, plays right into reason number 3 later…

2. They’re Scandinavian, Duh.

Nordgreen is based in copenhagen, denmark.

One of the more obvious and perhaps even most persuasive reasons is simply that the brand derives from Denmark – a place known for its offensively stylish people, its great design traditions, and gray skyscapes. If anyone knows how to combine poise and practicality, it’s the Danes. Dress to impress? Yes, but also: Dress to function, come wind, come rain – a mantra the company’s award-winning designer Jakob Wagner is well-familiar with. Having cut his teeth at brands like Bang & Olufsen, HAY or Cappellini, Wagner now lends his skilled eye to Nordgreen’s timewear, merging beauty with pragmatism.

Nordgreen’s watches are timewear’s embodiment of these sentiments, a manifestation of timeless fashion-forwardness and high adaptability in performance. Every single one of their models clocks in at at least 3, and up to 10 ATM, and can thus withstand light drizzles, heavy showers, and icy blizzards alike – all whilst adding that final, je ne sais quoi element (that’s French, not Danish, we’re aware) to your layered look. 


◾ Timeless Scandinavian design
◾ iF Design Award (2021) & RedDot Award (2020)
◾ Watches’ Water Resistance : Up to 10 ATM

3. They Create Personalized Sets

One or two additional straps, or Jewelry to accompany your timepiece

What’s great about Nordgreen watches is that they are all designed to feel contemporary without riding the coattails of trends. Nonetheless, we all like a bit of variety and to switch it up a little bit every now and then. Unlike many other watches in, above or below their price range, Nordgreen watches are easily editable to accommodate your every move. What that means in practice is that the vast selection of watch straps offered are easily interchangeable to lend effortless versatility.

So, if you can foresee yourself getting bored, go ahead and create your own set, according to your own taste. With the help of their website’s Set Builder, you can choose your model and select up to three accompanying straps, making your personalized timepiece immune to any style-, occasion, or moodswing. NEW: Sets now also come with your choice of a watch and a piece of jewelry, offering you a genre-spanning constellation of high quality products to wear together or as singles, to the office or the club.

4. They Make Affordable, luxurious Jewels

Hot-Off-The-Press Jewelry with Respect and responsibility at its core

Recently, as a brand that has become known and loved for their watches, Nordgreen introduced its clientele to a variety of bespoke jewellery items that reflect and resonate with the young company’s central ethos. Across three primary aesthetic virtues – Earth, Ocean, Urbanity – Nordgreen offers an array of bracelets, necklaces and earrings, for him and for her. 

Inspired by the likes of Amelia Earhart or mediterranean mythology, the pieces radiate with elegance and sophistication, without ever reading as heavy-handed. Available in hues of silver, gold, and rosé, the women’s lines of bracelets, necklaces and earrings seek to grace the wrists, necks and lobes of an eclectic, modern woman – a woman unafraid of expressing herself but uninterested in being defined by how she looks or what she wears. For men, we see sleek bracelets, in Bronzite, Lavastone or cotton, perfect to underpin his understated confidence.

◾ Inspired by Nature and Modernity
◾ Available with Watch Sets
◾ Stainless Steel, Lavastone, Diamonds and other materials

5. They Give Back

every Product supports a great cause.

Last but certainly not least, we have the fact that Nordgreen is a brand that gives back, quite literally. An operation led under the “Giving Back Program” moniker, the Scandinavian watchmakers allow customers to personally engage in the company’s efforts for a better tomorrow. A portion of every product-sold’s revenue is donated to one of three benevolent organizations – Cool Earth, Water For Good, or Pratham UK – to benefit causes relating to the preservation of Latin America’s rainforests, Central Africa’s water distribution systems, or the education of children in India, respectively, alongside the support of other seasonal, localized initiatives per sales-territory. 

As previously implied, Nordgreen puts heavy emphasis on their environmental responsibility. This becomes evident, for instance, in their use of recycled materials for their packaging. The aforementioned Guardian model is the epitome of said ethos; a watch made from 85% recycled stainless steel, delivered in 3D-printed packaging that consists of retrieved and refined plastic waste, and strategically engineered to be disassembled in the event of its return, so its components can be reused and contribute to a more circular supply chain. 

Similarly, Nordgreen offers a range of Refurbished watches, so timepieces that were sent back and repaired, granting them a second chance at life as opposed to simply being tossed in the trash. Further, both vegan and animal-based materials, like leather, are ethically sourced and certified to meet the greenest of standards, and emissions are offset in partnership with CleanHub.


◾ Responsible product materials
◾ Responsible packaging made of upcycled plastic
◾ Refurbished collection available
◾ Vegan leather collection available
◾ Carbon emission offset
