A story... About the wisdom of life, rooted in the earth and its people. About nature’s remarkable marvels. About an indestructible maturity forged from courage.

Our handiwork is based on the jewellery treasures of the ancient Baltic tribes, which do not cease to astonish with their forms, their ornaments, and their stories. We keep conveying their unique message by both creating precise copies of ancient jewellery and including ancient signs and symbols in modern-design jewels; and we have also created design collections with nature motifs in jewellery. Our jewels have travelled to all populated continents on Earth, and we are delighted to hear afterwards that other people recognise the wearer’s connection to Latvia. We have also hosted guests from distant countries, who visited Riga enticed by our jewellery.

Inita & Vitauts Straupe

The family enterprise Baltu Rotas was created out of passion for our roots more than 25 years ago. Today, founders Inita and Vitauts Straupe have been joined by more than 20 skilful assistants. From the very first day, our jewellery was made in beautiful Sigulda.

Our Team

Our team

There are already lots of us, we are different and complementary. We have got skilful master craftsmen, sharp minds, and many pairs of industrious, loving, and caring hands manufacturing jewels which our friendly shop staff will be glad to tell you about. From our hands into yours.

Good Deeds

When selecting charity projects, we listen to our heart’s voice. Currently we support the family assistance community "Zvannieki", the association "Cerību spārni", and medical treatment expenses in "ziedot.lv" projects, donating 15 % of the income from our charity collections.

Charity collection TREES

15 % of the income from this collection have been donated to various purposes of charity for more than 10 years. Thus we have helped unlucky children live in a family in ""Zvannieki"" community and handicapped people join in jobs under the care of association "Cerību Spārni".

Co-op Projects

We believe that you should do that which makes your eyes shine brightly. This is why we have joined in several wonderful synergies with artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, and others who convince and inspire us with their activities.

Participation in the inspiration forum "Female Leader 2021"

This year we were part of the splendid @growth and inspiration forum ""Female Leader 2021"". Our chief designer Inita Straupe created an exclusive original jewel for all the brilliant lecturers: A silver brooch with a Padparadscha sapphire and beach cobbles. This jewel depicts the various roles of a woman and the main priorities of each of them. The photo style and clothes were created in co-operation with fashion designer Iveta Vecmane.
