Minimalistic wedding rings - Keep it simple!

Simple wedding rings may seem a bit unimpressive at first glance, but we can think of numerous reasons why choosing them might be worth it in the long run. It can be quite difficult to choose the perfect wedding ring to symbolize your love after you get engaged. What you like today may not be to your taste in a few years. There is no guarantee that you will like it in the long run, but simpler wedding rings offer some advantages that increase the chances that your jewelry will still give you as much pleasure after many years as it did on the day you got married.

Timeless minimalism

Minimalism in its original sense means a counter-concept to materialism. Wanting more and more in every area of life consumes valuable resources, produces huge amounts of CO2 and leaves us unhappy in the long run. Consumerism may lead to short-term, intoxication-like moments of happiness, but studies prove: People who ceaselessly strive to own more and better feel less joy in life and are prone to self-doubt, anxiety and even depression. A minimalist lifestyle also usually involves doing without non-essentials and very conscious consumption. Ultimately, personal interpretation is individual and the boundaries are fluid. Nevertheless, in our opinion, every step towards a more responsible and sustainable life is a step in the right direction and benefits both our environment and our society.

That's why, as a sustainable jewelry label we want to limit ourselves in the design of our simple wedding rings - and all other pieces of jewelry - to what is really important: clear lines and clear principles. Hardly anywhere else than in love can we be more authentic and show ourselves in our pure essence. And this is what we want to reflect in our designs. Simple, finely crafted craftsmanship meets graceful design.

The result is our minimalist wedding rings: Der Essential Ring and the Bold Essential Ring. Give expression to your unique love with a timeless ring set and set something against the unstoppable flow of time. Because time passes, but just like your love, the jewelry should remain.

Good conscience forever

Few things are further from our minds than contributing to social or environmental injustice through our more entrepreneurial actions. All our decisions regarding materials, design, manufacturing processes as well as shipping processes are made responsibly and with the utmost care from the very beginning. You can be sure that our simple wedding rings are made from 100% recycled Urban Mining gold. Melting down existing gold is the most sustainable form of gold mining and processing, and neither our environment nor any human being is harmed in the process. Besides all sustainability aspects, we also agree: You should only be able to wear the symbol of your eternal connection with the best conscience.

Our A and O: Mix and Match

The most important thing first: Everyone may and should combine the pieces of jewelry as he or she wishes. Of course, this also applies to all forms of wedding rings. Although it is important to us in the design of our jewelry that they can nestle against each other without any problems when worn. In particular, we like the trend of ring stackings, wwhich means combining several rings. Among other things, wearing engagement and wedding rings together is becoming increasingly popular, with the engagement ring often worn as a stacking ring in front of a simple wedding ring. A large number of our Rings is therefore designed so that they line up ideally without leaving gaps.

In addition, our timeless and simple wedding rings allow for flawless combination with more extravagant and eye-catching other jewelry and clothing, as they love to let themselves steal the show at times and move into the background. As a sign of your love and with the intention to symbolize this until the end of your life and beyond as a constant companion, they have - whether in the foreground or background - anyway an undisputed great importance.

Make it yours - The engraving

To make your simple wedding ring set perfect, you still need a very personal message in the form of an engraving. With our professional engraving service, you can turn your wedding rings into very individual, unique pieces that capture this significant moment in your life and immortalize it forever in your jewelry.

Of course, any plain wedding ring can also form a beautiful wedding ring set with a more striking pendant. The most important thing is that the ring pleases the respective wearer. We also have a small selection of other ring designs, that make excellent wedding rings.

Why are minimalistic wedding rings sustainable?

The sustainability of jewelry is also about the jewelry being as durable as possible, pleasing for a long time and not going out of fashion so quickly. Minimalist jewelry is therefore sustainable because it is timeless, does not follow trends, can be combined with everything and is therefore particularly long wearable.

In addition, minimalist jewelry saves resources. Because everything that is superfluous is dispensed with. That's why when we create our simple designs at Maren Jewellery, we focus on exactly what we want to say with each piece of jewelry and only use as much recycled gold, as much silver and as many synthetic eco diamonds as necessary. Not only does this result in a clean, uncluttered design language, it also ensures that we minimize our consumption of resources. That's why minimalist jewelry is sustainable, because it focuses on the essentials and cuts out everything else.

What are the advantages of recycled gold?

DRecycling gold avoids the mining and consumption of new, finite resources, because many production wastes or old recyclable goods already contain enough gold to be processed for reuse. Since gold can be melted down and reused over and over again without loss, recycling gold is an environmentally friendly and also people-friendly alternative. Gold mining is not only dangerous and harmful to the health of all miners, but is unfortunately also often carried out by children and pollutes our water, soil and air through the use of cyanide and mercury.WWF, as well as the association Rettet den Regenwald considers recycled gold to be the most sustainable form of gold mining and processing. It uses 550 times less CO2 and 8.9 times less water than virgin gold. In addition, recycling gold prevents tons of toxic mine waste from entering our water, displacing peoples due to mining, and cutting down forests that are important for our biodiversity. Since 48.6% of gold demand is due to jewelry industry demand, choosing recycled gold can make a significant difference: Just imagine if all jewelry manufacturers used recycled gold.
