It's worth the trip even if you don't buy anything, the Hafnarfjordur marina is a stunning place. Of course it looks better with a sparkling jewel around your neck though, but then again what doesn't?
Sign is a jewellery store in Hafnarfjordur that was founded by jeweller Sigurdur Ingi Bjarnason in 2004. Sign is a very special entity and a wonderful example of the power, dedication and entrepreneurship that have characterised Icelandic operations for centuries. Sigurdur Ingi had been working as a goldsmith in Iceland for over a decade and was no stranger to the jewellery business when he realised he wanted a change, and decided to create his own jewellery line. He started the business out of his garage, and today he makes seven of the most popular design lines in Icelandic jewellery. Needless to say, the company outgrew its garage a long time ago.
The Sign workshop/store is located by the Hafnarfjordur marina in a stylishly renovated fisherman's hut, and they now have three full time goldsmiths and one intern working on the forging and two multi-tasking warriors that connect the company to the outside world. The atmosphere at Sign is filled with joy, talent and team-spirit, and that's the way the owner likes it. They all work together and share the load, and all the projects are linked together, which creates the synergy effect that makes Sign so unique.
The jewellery at Sign is designed to be an experience. They are structured on the mystique of Icelandic nature, interwoven with the landscape, the lava and the sea, fire and ice. Sigurdur Ingi has always emphasised being in good co-operation with other artists in Iceland and he is a firm believer in that artists of all genres need to stick together and help each other out. You can find Sign products in 24 stores around the country, and a product catalogue can be found on their website. Sign is very strong in the Icelandic market, both with their exceptional design and also with how well they service their retailers. Their prime goal is to make top quality items and serve their clients the best they can.
We encourage you to stop by their workshop at the Hafnarfjordur marina and have the jewel of your dreams custom made or look through the collections because this is where the quality and passion is at.
