Each of my handcrafted pieces of jewelry and each dreaMRing® is made to last ... they carry my DNA in a special way.
My HANDWORK creates companions that will be with you your whole life - every day or on special occasions ... and when you have fulfilled this meaning, they will be passed on ... again as companions, or as raw material for new ideas .
This is one of the ideas that drive me to create living things through my work that you can be fully proud of. As an entrepreneur, I have been following this sustainable path for 27 years, on which I am always looking for partners who are also willing to go that extra mile.
It starts with my raw materials ... and I am so grateful that more and more companies are really committed to protecting and promoting the poorest people at the beginning of this value chain, protecting the environment and using raw materials over and over again and thus our natural resources are also preserved.
Your existing gold enables perhaps the most sustainable extraction of raw materials and the most transparent supply chain. Furthermore, passing on enduring values from generation to generation is a wonderful process with priceless, emotional value:
I melt down your gold jewelry, from the resulting gold bar I forge your new, permanent companion.
When reworking your existing jewellery I give your companion a new look. By adjusting the shape, engravings, gemstones I can give your piece of jewelry a new character.
Another key supplier that I found in my search for credibly sustainable companies is C. Hafner.
From there I get my secondary gold ...
The INEC (Institute for Industrial Ecology) project at Pforzheim University, funded by the Federal Ministry for Research and Technology, showed that recycled gold has a carbon footprint that is 400-2000 times smaller than that of gold primarily extracted from mines. An important reason: secondary gold can always be returned to the resource cycle.
Hafner also uses the latest technologies to further reduce CO2 and protect the environment:
- With the help of heat exchangers, the residual heat from the cutting process is fed into the heating circuit.
- Raw materials, such as B. nitric acid are recycled for use in the circulatory process.
Working with Fairmined Gold, I support artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) and make a contribution to the promotion of this initiative ... Gold that you can be proud of.
The seal of approval confirms the consistent compliance with:
• Positive development in artisanal small-scale mining
• Ensuring a fair price to the miners and a premium that will help improve the sector and the life of the mining communities
• Social development in the region and environmental protection
• Responsible and conflict-free supply chains
• the participation of ASM in the global market
The Fairmined Initiative was founded by the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM), an international non-governmental organization that is considered a pioneer in its work with small-scale gold mining.
In my search for fair sapphires, I came across CEYLONS ⎮ MUNICH, which pioneers resource-saving mining and ethically fair processing of sapphires and other gemstones from Sri Lanka with the guiding principle "Fair for Everyone."
As a producer of fairly traded gemstones, especially sustainably and resource-conserving mined sapphires, CEYLONS openly gives insight into their work and explains very transparently what they understand by "fair" and "sustainable" in relation to nature and local people and how they implement this.
What we have in common is that it is also a privilege for my supplier to work with rare colored gemstones. With their approach, they work fairly with their partners and employees in Sri Lanka, fairly with their business partners and fairly with me as a customer.
Feel free to make your own impression of CEYLONS ⎮ MUNICH:
The increasing commitment to sustainable concepts for the extraction and trade of gemstones finally gives me more opportunities to process fair products from fair, sustainable micro-mining and processing.
I get my diamonds from my RJC tested and certified partner. This Council ensures responsible, ethical, social, environmental and human rights practices throughout the jewelry value chain.
The annual review of the COP (Code of Practice) also ensures that all specifications, for example on human rights,
Environmental impact and product descriptions complied with
