At this point a little thought on the topic of sustainability
Everyone talks about how important it is to have an incredibly sustainable lifestyle, but the “buy button” of relevant large corporations is still pressed very quickly. Because we have become far too used to: “I need that quickly now” or “individual people can’t do anything anyway”.
But! He can.
Sustainability starts on a very small scale.
We certainly won't give any speeches about climate change, personal restrictions, taking cold showers, turning down the heating and all the information that every child knows anyway.
We want to create a little attention for your own wishes. And needs.
Thinking “do I really need this now” more often is not only a long-term step towards improvement for the environment, but above all for yourself.
"Sustainable means choosing something that will give you lasting, long-term enjoyment and that you don't have to replace and buy new straight away."
"It's much more fun to think about what you really want," says CAPULET founder Nina.
And if you consciously choose something with time and joy, you will enjoy the piece for a long time.
That's where we come into play.
Because we only forge sustainable pieces of jewelry, made by hand.
Of course the question arises:
What is sustainable jewelry?
At CAPULET, we forge pieces of jewelry that will last a lifetime. That's why we forge each piece individually by hand. Completely according to your wishes. Your piece of jewelry will accompany you throughout your life. You don't need new stuff all the time.
Sustainable jewelry is made from real materials, made by real hands. The goldsmiths from the CAPULET workshop in Munich love every single piece. Days and sometimes weeks of work go into making a piece of jewelry.
Top 5 sustainable jewelry
