Aide-mémoire_Jewelry_#1aran galligan.jpg

Handmade bespoke eco-friendly & conflict-free fine jewelry, wedding bands and engagement rings, designed by Aran Galligan in Seattle, Washington. Our mission is to create future heirlooms in a socially and environmentally responsible way.

Aran Galligan is inspired both by principles of modern design – functionality, truth to materials, and beauty through simplicity – as well as an aesthetic value the Japanese call Wabi-sabi, where beauty often lies in the imperfect mark of the hand. This aesthetic celebrates the beauty in the slight imperfections of nature. It accepts the process of growth and decay, valuing modesty, simplicity, humbleness and integrity of purpose. These principles are integral to Aran’s unique handmade creations.
