HMRLE Real sustainability
Next level jewellery creation
Creating good design and finding the best gemstones is one thing - the challenge today is creating truly sustainable jewellery. It is my firm opinion that our industry is obliged to act responsibly from this moment on. There are a lot of sustainable thought-bubbles and what I would call semi-sustainability out there today. As one of the first jewellers to start working with fair trade gold in Germany, I know a lot about this topic and how it can be applied throughout our industry.
For me, one of the best ways to obtain a desired and really sustainable piece of jewellery is to take an old one and transform it into something new.
Merge the best from all worlds
I search for a piece from the late 80s or 90s with a design no one with taste would touch. The quality of these pieces, especially the gemstones, can be astonishing. I use my expertise to purchase the appropriate pieces, ensuring we can extract and use all of the valuable materials - gold, diamonds, rubies, sapphires, etc.
By melting the gold or platinum we create a new, truly sustainable piece of fine jewellery while using or re-cutting the existing gemstones. With a gorgeous new design, and fine goldsmithing artwork, an original piece is brought to life.
The possibilities are infinite - not unlike in the process of creating a new bespoke piece.
The search for the appropriate pieces may lead to a longer than normal creation process – surely a small price to pay to preserve our environment.
Preloved - reinvented
If you love the idea as much as I do, please let me know and together we can create your very personal piece of fine sustainable jewellery.
