Testimonials

Everything about this transaction and ring was beautifully and professionally done. Communication was rapid, delivery sooner than estimated, packaging lovely (it even came with instructions for care!) and the ring itself a finely crafted work of art. This is a perfect wedding band for someone seeking something beautiful with just a touch of rebellion against traditional plain bands. I could not be happier.

These rings are beautiful! So simple & rustic ~ just what we wanted. They're the perfect everyday wedding band for long-term wear & working with your hands. And we're so happy Aran was willing to custom size them for us. We look forward to getting the "secret diamond" installed when we return from our honeymoon.

My fiance and i went non traditional with him proposing without a ring so I got to pick my engagement ring. I first saw Aran's rings on Etsy and LOVED her style, and was even happier that she was local to Seattle! i was specifically looking for a small simple engagement ring with a non-diamond stone; while I liked that she used recycled diamonds, i more liked that she had plenty of other gems and lab made stones. I was able to find the style I wanted and also fell in love with a unique wedding band. She was fantastic to work with, her and her assistant answered emails very promptly and were thorough with answering questions, for an online vendor they definitely made me feel confident about buying something without trying it on or seeing it in person . She agreed to make both rings as a set and they arrived exactly within the quoted time. Im beyond thrilled with how they turned out! My finace was impressed as well and we ended up getting his ring from her as well. She now has a studio space so we were able to make an appointment for a consult sinces shes in our area. Shes even more awesome in person and she really knows her stuff. She was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, she didnt try and push any particular thing onto us and was very helpful to my fiance who had very little idea of what he wanted. I cannot recommend her enough

Aran and Aide Memoire were a dream to work with on this special wedding band for my husband. I wanted some little gems inset on the inside and Aran was very patient with helping me decide. She also was very honest on what would and wouldn't work well to make sure it would be long-lasting and I really appreciated that from her! I worked in jewelry for a high end store for 5 years and I can say with total confidence that Aran's workmanship, knowledge and design are as good as I've ever seen. She also is very careful in her selection of materials which is important to me. Whether you are buying something direct from her designs or need something custom Aide Memoire would be an excellent choice for a jeweler!

We're thrilled! We absolutely love our wedding bands! Aran, Adam and Vivian were wonderful with emails. The rings are beautiful and turned out exactly as we wanted. We wanted our wedding bands to reflect our love for nature and camping.--Aran's wood texture on rose gold makes our hearts smile. It takes all of our self control to wait until our wedding day so that we can keep our rings on!

I would highly recommend AideMemoire. It means a lot to us knowing that Aran creates ethical rings and supports marriage equality. Thank you so much Aran, Adam and Vivian. :)

I was a little apprehensive about purchasing a wedding band online. But the ring is amazing, even better than I expected. Perfectly crafted and unique. SO much better than anything you can find in a store. AideMemoire specified that there would be a wait for the ring, and they delivered on time which I appreciated. Excited to see this ring age over the years and I couldn't be more satisfied with it.

Aran was extremely helpful, nice and patient in customizing my ring for my fiancé. I could not be more pleased with the ring. It is beautiful and exactly what I was looking for, I just didn't know what I wanted until she helped me through the process.
-Geoffrey H.
My fiance was very particular about what kind of band he wanted - thin but not too thin, matte, sturdy, and not sharp on the edges. And not too expensive! I was so happy when he saw his ring and he said it was exactly what he wanted.
-Andrenna T
Exactly as described, an absolutely beautiful ring! Aran was helpful when I had questions about Australian to US sizing conversion and was prompt in the delivery of my purchase, I would highly recommend.

My husband wanted a simple but special ring. The ring we chose was perfect and it was made from recycled gold. Aide-memoire Jewelry is eco friendly and conflict free. That was very important to us when looking for a wedding band. It took a long time for my husband to decide on his ring, when he finally chose, it was cutting it very close to the wedding. We were not sure if we would get the ring on time for the ceremony. I sent a note with our order to let them know our time constraints. We got the ring in record time with weeks to spare! Aran was prompt, courteous and made us a beautiful ring. We were extremely happy with our decision to use Aide-memoire!

This ring is everything I expected and more! The 14k palladium white gold is a stunning color that matches well with my silver and gold watch. The comfort fit lives up to its name and allows me to wear the ring all day without even noticing that I have it on. Thanks Aran for creating a one of a kind ring!
-Jerry F.

Aran is fantastic! The quality of her work is exceptional, and she is very responsive and helpful! I am so excited to have gotten our wedding rings from such a great artist!
-Nora T.
Incredibly gorgeous ring and great service (free re-sizing!). Love that the materials are recycled + a little bit is donated to charity. My fiancé loves this ring (it was a surprise) + I would recommend Aran's amazing work in a heartbeat!
-Valerie M.
Aran's level of craftsmanship is impeccable and her practices are admirable. Do not hesitate to order from aide-mémoire! Plus, she donates a portion of her monthly sales to Lambda. I mean, come on! I got a custom built, affordable, gorgeous ring that I feel really good about. Thank you for making an heirloom for my big day, Aran!
-Aaron B.

-Tux L.
We LOVE this ring. Aran was SO helpful and put a lot of effort into helping me pick the right ring for my finance. She knows so much about metals and her knowledge was really helpful in making this purchase. Her work is beautiful and we're both so happy with the final product. We were also really happy to support someone who cares about using recycled metals, AND supports marriage equality! Great shop all around! 
-Jenna G.
We received our rings and are so thrilled with them. They fit perfectly and are even more beautiful than we imagined. My ring compliments my engagement ring perfectly and my fiancée is so thrilled to have such a unique band. He has previously searched locally for a ring with the finish and shape Aran created but to no avail. We are so glad to have found Aran's shop and feel so lucky to have found the process so easy. Aran showed amazing kindness, expertise and skills throughout the whole process, it truly was a pleasure to work with her. 
-Áine B.
These rings are SO GORGEOUS. They are everything I hoped they would be, and more! They are so elegant and fine. The quality is amazing, so perfectly made. Aran was such a dream to deal with as well. Thank you so much Aran! I will enjoy wearing these rings forever!
-Nicole M.
I ordered a 6mmx2mm classic comfort fit band in palladium for my wedding and the ring was exactly what I wanted. Aran was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and so pleasant to deal with. Overall a great experience and the ring is a beauty. Thanks so much! 
-Scott T.
Beautiful work. My husband loves this ring. Being someone who does not wear jewelry, it's everything he wanted in a wedding band and he also gets to indulge his inner child with his palladium iron man ring. Thanks Aran.
