Whenever we need inspiration, when the soul thirsts and a break is needed, we find the answer to all these longings in nature. For it holds something that no city yet holds: a pervasive peace. And with this peace we want to be in relationship, we want to be part of it, but not only. Because: relationships consist of giving and taking.
In harmony with nature
Maren Jewellery stands for luxury jewelry in harmony with nature. This does not stop with the materials we use. But it starts there. That's why we forge our jewelry from recycled 18 karat gold, white gold and 925 sterling silver. Instead of natural diamonds, whose origins are too often questionable and unaccounted for, sourced from war zones or scooped from the depths of mines by children, we've chosen synthetic Eco Diamonds. It took us a long time to establish a supply chain that fits our needs, with partners who take our goals as seriously as we do.
Our resources? Sustainable.
But of course: Whenever something is produced, waste products are also created. We are working to ensure that all our waste products are recyclable and can therefore simply be returned to the production cycle. And we are getting ever closer to the circular economy - for example, by dispensing with plastic and other non-degradable resources. But: this is only about means of production. But what about our carbon footprint?
Of course, the issue of climate neutrality is central to us. But all we can do is reduce our emissions - we can't stop them yet. But we are making adjustments wherever we can: We use a Fairphone, travel as little as possible, and when we do, we take the train instead of the car. And the results are impressive. The CO2 values of our jewelry are vanishingly small compared to conventional luxury jewelry. But that's not enough for us. That's why we've decided to do more to make less possible.
How climate neutrality works
The question is: How can a company become climate neutral? We cooperate with Choose. This is an initiative that sets up projects that reduce and offset the CO2 consumption of donating companies and private individuals. For every piece of jewelry we produce, we thus offset 500 kilograms of CO2. That is more than we emit with our jewelry. Our figures, which you will soon be able to see in our sustainability report, speak for themselves: our goal of forging luxury jewelry in harmony with nature is working: We are reducing our emissions every day and more than that is being offset. And that is exactly why Maren Jewellery is climate positive. We are proud of that. Because: What we love, we have to protect. We love nature. What do you love?
