Sustainability

Glueckskind® is made of 100% recycled precious metals

… and are made in Germany.

Where does the gold and silver for the your ‘Glueckskind®’ rings come from? I can’t provide proof in form of a certificate just yet, but the issue of sustainability and upcycling is very important to me. Jewellery on the subject of babies should in my opinion always be sustainable.

Herefore I make a promise:
All ‘Glueckskind®’ rings are made of 100% recycled precious metals.

The metal refineries with whom I work have set themselves high ecological standards, so that the manufacturing process of the precious metal itself does not impact the environment. All companies I work with are based in Germany and are subject to German law.

I’m happy to provide further information on this subject if requested.

If you would like a ring made from your own gold or silver, please contact me.

In memory

In memory…

“Those who can hear butterflies laughing, know how clouds taste” Novalis (* 2. Mai 1772; † 25. März 1801)

The ‘Glueckskind®’ rings can be a way to express our precious memories of a baby who is no alive today. Some babies were stillborn, died during or shortly after birth or through abortion. Whichever tragical circumstance, these babies are never forgotten. Some people find it comforting to have something physical to remember the baby by, particularly if there hasn’t been a wake or a grave.

Should you have had this experience, then I would like to assure you of my sincere sympathy.

I would like to tell you the story, how the addition of “in memory” came about.

I had a customer in my workshop, who noticed the “Glueckskind®’ rings and suddenly started to cry. She then told me that she had lost a baby a long time ago, and that she has been trying to reach a connection with her baby ever since. She asked to try out ring ‘Jamie“ – which happened to fit perfectly on her finger. Her feedback was that the ring helped her to reach the connection with her late child she had been looking for all these years. She didn’t really want to take the ring off anymore, but did so to get a Stone set and an engraving added. Her tears dried off and happiness emerged. I was quite perplexed at the deep and complex emotions the ring evoked.

I would be very happy should Jamie or Sam allow you the emotional connection you might have been looking for. I can also add an engraving of a star, to symbolise the sky or heaven your child might have gone to. Obviously you don’t have to share your personal story with me if you don’t wish to.

This is how my customer added a whole new meaning to the rings, which I hadn’t even intended at the beginning of the “Glueckskind®’ journey.

“ART should be an essential expression of deep feeling that move people. Art is where the artist has given a piece of himself. And if it is art, than it transcends language, space and time.
DESIGN should follow this principle: “form follows function”.

And making jewelry is a balancing act between art and design.”
