About The Brand
Inspired by a collection of Victorian wax seals found while digging through a box of old letters at an estate sale, Pyrrha's signature talismans evolved from a desire to give the fragile antique seals new life and permanence. Pyrrha celebrates the natural imperfections of each piece and proudly show the maker’s hand. Pyrrha create sustainable jewellery that holds personal significance for those who wear it. People connect with symbols and their meanings, and the individual way they resonate with their personality, ambitions, struggles or source of joy. The intention with their talismans is to offer inspiration, connection, or simply a bit of comfort.
They’ve always tried to tread lightly on the earth while handcrafting their jewellery, but now they’re part of a global sustainability movement. As a certified B Corp and a member of both the Responsible Jewellery Council and 1% For the Planet, they sustainably handcraft each and every piece of their jewellery from start to finish in their carbon-neutral Vancouver studio.
