Rooted in the Spirit of the Handmade

Aide-mémoire handcrafts heirloom-quality engagement rings, wedding rings, and fine jewelry using socially conscious and environmentally friendly methods.

To highlight fellow Makers in the handmade community, our brick-and-mortar shop showcases our own collection of fine jewelry, as well as the work of Artists and Makers forging their own unconventional, creative-driven career paths.

Occasionally we host Pop-up events to highlight Artists and Makers in our community. We hope you'll join us in celebrating the independent spirit with us!
