We offer a few different lines to meet different needs. Regardless of the manufacturer, all pieces sold by Aide-mémoire Jewelry adhere to our strict material sourcing. All pieces are crafted from 100% recycled precious metals (with the exception of some chain components, which may not contain 100% recycled metal). We use only ethical conflict-free diamonds (natural recycled, Canadian or Australian, and lab-grown) and ethical fair-trade gemstones. We go beyond the Kimberley Process in sourcing our diamonds to ensure that they truly are conflict-free.
Designed by Aran Galligan - These pieces are Aran's original designs and are crafted and carefully handled in-house. Each bespoke piece of jewelry we create is custom made to order. Our techniques merge tradition with the latest technology – utilizing everything from time honored metalworking skills to computer-aided design.
Simple Bands - These classic wedding band styles are custom-made to order, and are crafted in the United States with 100% SCS certified recycled metal. Since they are not made in-house, it affords lower prices and faster lead times than our handmade bands – taking just 1-3 weeks from the time of order.
3C Designs - This is a collection of carefully curated pieces created in the U.S. using only 100% SCS certified recycled metal. While not made in house, many of the engagement rings in this collection are easily customizable with a variety of stone shapes and sizes. Many of the customizations that can be made on these designs will not incur a custom fee or create a longer lead-time.
