This Is Us

This Is Us:

For women, by women. We are here because of women: Rachel, the woman who started Hillberg & Berk at her kitchen table, the team of women we’ve grown into and the community of women who support us. Our jewelry is emblematic of the boldness and brilliance every woman already possesses within herself. Our business is centered around connecting and empowering women. In everything we do, the reason is women.

Sparkle. Celebrate. Repeat.

We Believe:

When a woman rises, we all rise. The most powerful thing a woman can be is herself. She writes the definition. Daring. Passionate. Joyful. Determined. There’s never just one way to be. A woman owning her colours and contrasts is magnetic. It inspires, it travels, it builds. Tapping into it, channeling it to raise up others, that’s how we change the world.

Meet Rachel:

Hillberg & Berk Founder & CEO.


Land Acknowledgement

Hillberg & Berk is a non-Indigenous owned brand. We acknowledge that we are operating and living on largely unceded Indigenous lands that have been inhabited by many Nations for thousands of years. As a proud Saskatchewan company, our core operations and Head Office are located on Treaty 4 Territory, the original lands of the Cree, Ojibwe, Saulteaux, Dakota, Nakoda, Lakota, and on the homeland of the Metis Nation. We recognize these Nations as the custodians of the land. We also recognize that the areas where we gather and work are historical gathering places for many other Indigenous Peoples. We are grateful for the Nations that have been and continue to be stewards of the land that provides us with an opportunity to bring our brand and products to people. Across Turtle Island, we respect and honour the treaties that were made on all territories, and are committed to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation and collaboration. Acknowledging the land on which we operate and its history, is a small act of reconciliation with Indigenous communities. Hillberg & Berk undertakes other education, efforts and support to restore inclusion and agency for Indigenous communities, guided by dialogue with employees, customers, and community members about our role in advancing reconciliation through equity, diversity and inclusion.
