Wedding and engagement rings are chosen to be a lifelong symbol of your love and commitment, but sourcing and mining their materials has been linked to less-than-romantic industry practices. Aide-mémoire
’s eco-friendly, conflict-free, and made-to-order rings are crafted using recycled precious metals with styles ranging from timeless and classic, to funkier and more modern. Each month the studio spreads the love by making contributions to organizations including The Hunger Project
, Human Rights Campaign
, and Ethical Metalsmiths
Other craftspersons we love: Andrea Bonelli
for her rustic hand carved wedding bands (and her donations to Kiva and The Toolbox Initiative), Ken & Dana Design’s
vintage-inspired engagement rings made with recycled metal bands and conflict-free diamonds, and Bario Neal
for their creative and classic designs, and their commitment to sourcing every material ethically (from the smallest pave stone to their fairmined metals).
