Unfortunately, in the jewelry industry, it is the people at the bottom of the supply chain who pay the price for cheaper products. These are underpaid miners and children who work in dangerous conditions and are exposed to harmful chemicals on a daily basis. They are factory workers who are overworked and exploited. These are children who work in stone cutting factories and sacrifice their childhood. And then there are the devastating environmental impacts, such as land degradation, deforestation, mercury poisoning, water pollution, and the illegal trade in precious metals and diamonds that supports conflict.
Fast fashion jewelry may be more affordable for consumers in the short term, but the true cost that other people and our environment pay for it is immeasurably high. At Maren Jewelery we don't just want to sell jewellery; For us it is about putting quality and responsibility at the center of our work.
Founder Helge Maren Hauptmann says: „We guarantee holistic sustainability“. That's not just a statement: we at Maren Jewelery promise that our jewelry is more than a consumer product. It is a statement for quality, sustainability and fairness.
