We love the wild freedom of nature as much as its quiet depth. That's why we want to do everything in our power to preserve their beauty and design jewelry that not only reflects that elegance, but is also made in harmony with it. We are a mindful, sustainable and responsible company. In order to fill these values with life, we have decided to capture them here for us as well as for you. We mind together we can make our dreams a reality and make this world a better place..
We have set ourselves the goal of living in harmony with nature and designing jewelry that is not only good for you but also for our planet. That's why we think about every single step we take and question ourselves so that we can guarantee you holistic sustainability through sustainable materials and sustainable action.
We only use recycled gold, silver and synthetic eco diamonds for our jewelry. Our packaging is made of beautiful recyclable paper or sustainable natural linen, depending on your choice. And our jewellery, which we only make when you order it, is also recyclable. In this way, we are striving for a circular economy in the long term. To do this, all the materials used must be recyclable so that they can always be put back into the production cycle and as few new resources as possible are used.
Together we think further about sustainability and design environmentally friendly, beautiful jewelry for you and the earth..
The earth is home and inspiration for us. When life around us gets too loud and hectic, we retreat to nature and take deep breaths of its wild, healing peace. Precisely because the hours in the wilderness give us so much, we want to become active. We want to take responsibility for what we love.
That's why we work with selected, sustainable suppliers who share our vision and inspire us every day to think further about sustainability. We produce exclusively in Germany, which enables us to keep our transport routes as short as possible and to design pieces of jewelery of the highest quality. As far as we can, we do not use plastic in the manufacture of our jewelry. We have also decided to offset 100kg of CO2 for every piece of jewelry produced and donate 3% of our sales to the Earthbeat Foundation every year from 2021.
It's not just about beautiful jewelry for us, but also about making this world a little bit better every day. For you, for us and for nature.
Mindfulness is the loving, forgiving treatment of ourselves, nature and other people. It is the gentle power of mindfulness that enables us to admit mistakes to ourselves and thus enable personal growth. A mindful love.
For our jewellery, this means a design of clean, quiet lines whose beauty stands the test of time. It means that we treat nature with respect, which is why all our jewelry is completely animal-free and therefore vegan. We want to take you with us on our journey and share every step with you so that you can be sure that our jewelery fits your life. That is why we attach great importance to transparency.
Mindfulness is an experience and we look forward to sharing it with you.
We only use recycled gold and silver for our jewelry. We are thus taking a big step towards holistic sustainability and are a significant step closer to our goal of circular economy, which we are particularly proud of.
Gold and silver stand for elegance, for purity and last but not least for timeless beauty. Through urban mining, i.e. the recycling of metals, the precious metals lose none of their purity, but gain the sheer joy of wearing them: urban mining protects our environment and minimizes energy consumption, neither unethical working conditions nor child labor are supported. Instead, we guarantee a traceable supply chain and fair wages.
Our recycled 925 silver and recycled 18 carat gold are manufactured by various refineries and foundries, which we present to you in detail in our journal.
Gold and silver have never been so beautiful.
Diamonds are unique and dignified, they are a wordless promise, so pure and simple that they often inspire humble awe. However, the origin of natural diamonds is often difficult to determine and the circumstances under which they were created are usually unsustainable.
That's why we source our synthetic eco diamonds directly from the manufacturer so we can understand who makes them and under what conditions. We can be assured that each stone is produced under ethical and environmentally desirable circumstances..
Synthetic diamonds created in the lab are physically and chemically identical to natural diamonds. They are made in the same way and are in no way different from their natural counterparts.
Originally, natural diamonds are formed through a process that lasts about 2.5 million years and takes place far below, in the depths of the earth. These processes can now be imitated and significantly accelerated in the laboratory, making it possible to produce unique synthetic diamonds of natural purity in less time.
This allows us to design jewelry that we can be confident is pure and beautiful through and through. Synthetic eco diamonds are pure, high-quality diamonds that are produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner in accordance with our values.
A diamond cannot be purer.
Love is a secret that, once spoken, becomes all the more mysterious, that gains depth and leaves nothing untouched. Just like the mindfulness that ensures that things lose their naturalness and that can amaze us. A mindful love. We are committed to mindfulness that doesn't end with the completion of a piece of jewelry.
We are pleased that we were able to design packaging that embodies exactly that: the love of mindfulness. We ship our jewelry in artworks made from recyclable paper that is not only printed in an environmentally friendly way, but also embossed, which makes us particularly happy as it brings us a step closer to the circular economy that is our goal.
Your piece of jewelry will also be delivered in a reusable natural linen bag, which, like our paper, is handmade.
Mindfulness is an experience and we look forward to sharing it with you.
Love is a feeling of movement, of infinitely changing shape. She knows how to surprise again and again, every day she finds new ways to create her own space and meet the lovers in new ways. But as soon as you try to capture it, hold it and keep it in just one form, it disappears.
We have made this lively mobility our principle. We offer pieces of jewelery in our collections, but we do not dictate to anyone the form of their love: all our pieces of jewelery are designed for destruction. We only use pure precious metals in the production of our jewelry, which enables us to melt them down again and give them a new shape if desired. In the long term, we are striving for a circular economy. Because like love, our jewelry should meet you on all the paths that you choose for yourself and adapt to you so that it can accompany you throughout your life.
Jewelery is a form of expression, a language whose words everyone can invent for themselves. You and your jewelry, you complement each other and not only you wear your jewelry. Your jewelry also carries you within itself, it reflects you and is a part of you.
Your piece of jewelry should only be yours, so we only design it when you order it. This can lead to delivery times of 1-2 weeks, but not only can we be sure that the jewelery is unique, just like its future wearer, we can save valuable resources at the same time and do good to the earth, which is also unique a big favor. en.
Your jewellery, as unique as you.
It is our desire to design your favorite pieces. Our favorite jewelry is the one that has a story, we know who made it and therefore has a special value for us.
Made in Germany not only stands for high-quality products, but also for local production. Because the furthest distance our jewelery should travel is from us to you. Made in Germany, these are our producers, our suppliers, our employees, who all share the same vision: sustainable structures, fair working conditions, high-quality products, resource-saving production and short delivery routes.
We are happy to work with companies that inspire us to think further about sustainability, that challenge us to constantly question ourselves and find new ways and that help us to make our jewelry in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
We're not perfect, but we have just the right community to take a step in the right direction every day.
We love what we do, so for us it's not just about the finished piece of jewelry, but about every single step we take along the way. About the story that we tell together. About the people who accompany us on this path.
We think jewelry should make you happy. That's why we work together on fair work structures with fair pay. Of course we attach particular importance to the fact that all products that we use for our jewelery are sustainable, but it is just as important to us that the people who accompany us on our way to holistically sustainable jewelery are as happy as you are, when you wear your new favorite piece.
We believe it's no secret: It's easier to love together.
For us, mindfulness means that we look at the world and ask ourselves what we can do to make the beautiful even more beautiful. How can we do our part to make this world a better place? What can we do to positively associate terms such as sensitivity or emotionality? How can we lead a life that goes with nature and not against it t?
A clear goal for us is not to produce any waste. Zero waste is a challenge for every company and we are always looking for new ways that can bring us closer to this goal.
We have already taken a big step: as far as we can, we completely avoid plastic in our production process. Also, all the materials we use are recycled and recyclable.
We look forward to continuing to work on new structures to make our circular economy goal a reality.
Of all things, those dearest to us are those that bear witness to mindfulness and love. The small, scrawled works of art under fridge magnets, the pottery vase in which every flower seems to live longer, the crystal glasses from which our grandparents enjoyed their sparkling successes. All of these, our favorite pieces, have one thing in common: they are handmade.
Because jewelry is our passion, we take the time to handcraft all of our jewelry. No piece is like the other, each one is unique. Your piece of jewelry will be lovingly handcrafted individually for you.
This is complex and time-consuming, but we know that you are worth it and we want our jewelery to become your favorite piece..
We are dedicated to our dream of doing everything we can to live in harmony with nature and create jewelry that makes this principle a reality. But alone, our options are limited. We would like to do more.
Because our earth is acutely endangered by climate change, we find it particularly important to do something to ensure that nature can breathe again. That's why we decided to offset 100kg of CO2 for every piece of jewelry we produce by donating to Chooose. This is an organization that enables companies as well as private individuals to offset their carbon footprint by investing in projects that aim to reduce CO2 emissions and are verified by the UN or the Gold Standard.
We are happy that we offset more CO2 than we consume and can give something back to our planet.
We have also decided to donate 3% of our profits to the Earthbeat Foundation every year starting in 2021. This is an organization that has set itself the goal of creating new sources of income in localities where people from small-scale mining live, so that nature can heal and people no longer have to rely on illegal mining work, which is not only dangerous , but is also very harmful to the environment. Because we only work with recycled gold for our jewelry, we are happy that in this way we can do our part to reduce gold mining in mines and give people a hopeful future.
For us, mindfulness means making sure that no living being is harmed. But at the same time, it means understanding the opinions and perspectives of others and respecting them even when you disagree. .
At Maren Jewelery we have chosen to live a vegan life. We not only pay attention to a vegan diet, it is just as important to us that all our jewelry is designed entirely without animal products. This means that all of our materials are animal-free: our jewellery, our packaging and our glue are vegan.
But we want everyone to only take the steps that feel right to them. You have your opinion and nobody should decide it for you. If you want to be vegan, that's great. But every small step is a step in the right direction.
Your life is yours and who better to decide how you want to live it than you?
Sometimes it's the words whispered in the dark. The look that tells us: I understand you, you are not alone. The nocturnal, calm breathing of the person who is most important to us. The moments when we understand each other, when we feel safe and secure, are often not the big fireworks, but the moments that are so quiet in their sensitive clarity.
We want to limit ourselves to what is necessary because we believe that love, aesthetics and above all sustainability can be found exactly where nothing else has been added - this applies to our design as well as to our everyday life. We limit ourselves to what is really important. On clear lines and clear principles. What more could it need ?
Where we can be the least of ourselves is love.
The unstoppable passage of time can seem threatening. Moments fly by and cannot be stopped. They come and go. years come and go So it's not surprising that we're constantly searching for something that defies this monotonous flow of time.
And they still exist, the islands of timelessness. This is exactly where our claim lies, to design jewelry through clear lines and quiet beauty that stands the test of time, both in terms of quality and aesthetics. We reflect on what constitutes beauty for us and make this our highest principle: quality over quantity.
let the time pass Our jewelry stays.
We want to design jewelry that lives up to our claim of living in harmony with nature. We want to always live up to our claim to sustainability. We want to meet your requirements. We want to be demanding. But we believe that we can only achieve all the goals we set ourselves if we are kind to ourselves.
Nobody is perfect and we are convinced that this is a strength. Only when we accept ourselves as we are can we reach our full potential. Only when we accept that we may not succeed in everything right away do we pave the way to growth.
We want to grow. But growth only begins when we recognize our weaknesses. Living in harmony with nature means living in harmony with ourselves.
be kind to yourself Be mindful, my love.
The most beautiful gift you can get from someone is trust. The most beautiful thing you can give back is honesty transparency.
We appreciate your trust and in return we want to share with you every step we take to design your favorite piece. We do this not only because we see it as our duty to give you a complete picture of exactly what you can expect from us and how we work, but also because we are incredibly proud of the many great people and companies with whom we can work.
If you're wondering who all this is, take a look at our journal, where we introduce all suppliers and producers. In our shop you can also see where our materials come from and who we buy them from.
With us, your trust is in careful hands.
For us, commitment does not end with the completion of a piece of jewellery. We are also committed to sustainable change and believe in constant change.
Does Maren Jewelery have sustainability certificates?
Yes, Maren Jewelery is RJC certified and a B Corp. This means that we have received sustainability certificates for taking the social and social responsibility that a start-up entails seriously. For putting the needs of those who are directly or indirectly affected by the activities of our business at the center and for promoting humane, ethical and environmentally friendly conditions along the supply chains in the jewelry industry. We also make sure to work with suppliers who also have sustainability certificates. For example, three of our partners are RJC certified.
In addition, we are currently working on another sustainability certification: the CO2 neutral certification.
Which sustainable initiatives does Maren Jewelery support?
Maren Jewelery has decided to support two initiatives in the long term in order to produce each piece of jewelery in the best possible way in harmony with nature:
Although each of our pieces of jewelery uses 0.4 kg of CO2 on average, around 73 times less CO2 than the average piece of jewelery produced, every time we sell one of our pieces of jewelery we offset 100 kg of CO2 with a donation to the sustainable initiative Chooose in order to be climate-positive.
At Maren Jewelery we only use recycled materials so that we don't have to mine more gold and use what is already there. In order to still do something for positive change in the gold industry and for the nature and people of the mining areas for which we want to take responsibility, we support the Earthbeat Foundation with 3% of our annual profit.
TheEarthbeat Foundationstands up for people whose livelihood is mine work due to a lack of alternatives. New sustainable sources of income are being created locally by the Earthbeat Foundation, such as the beekeeping project.
Which awards has Maren Jewelery already received?
Share details about your shipping policies, item returns, or customer service. Our sustainable work has already been proven with theGerman Design Awards 2022 for outstanding design quality in the category Excellent Product Design - Eco Design.
In addition, we couldGreen Product Awards 2022 win an award as the best sustainable fashion startup.
Does Maren Jewelery have a sustainability report?
Yes, although it is not mandatory for Maren Jewelery to file a sustainability report, we have decided to inform you about our sustainability activities and initiatives in a comprehensive report and to disclose our figures. Because transparency is important to us. With the help of our sustainability report, we want to give you and ourselves a unit of measure. We want to know where we stand in order to show where we want to go. That's why you can use the sustainability report to get an accurate picture of how much Co2 our jewelry consumes compared to conventional jewelry, where we source our synthetic diamonds, our recycled gold and silver and who produces it for us. You will get a detailed overview of our holistically sustainable supply chain and our values and goals. In this way you can assure yourself that our holistic understanding of sustainability is important to us and that these are not just empty phrases.
