About

Future heirlooms for present people.

Ethos

Oremme is a meditation on time; how and when it slows, the moments it accelerates. And, of course, its unstoppable march forward. There are few objects that can simultaneously ground us in the present while also asking us to think ahead. We believe jewelry is one. Oremme is designed to withstand trends and wear so that you can leave something beautiful behind.

Provenance

Oremme is thoughtfully designed and made-to-order in Toronto. Each piece is handcrafted by a variety of artisans using responsibly sourced materials. All 14-karat gold in our made-to-order line is guaranteed recycled or certified Canadian. Diamonds are conflict-free and sourced in compliance with the UN’s Kimberly Process, while gemstones are purchased from both Responsible Jewellery Council members as well as fully vetted international suppliers. In addition, Oremme curates a selection of Italian-made pieces which are equally audited, ensuring responsible sourcing and production processes.

Principles

Oremme is a proud 1% for the Planet member. 1% of our revenue will always support accredited and intersectional environmental causes to offset the ecological effects of the jewelry industry. In addition, Oremme has taken the 15% Pledge and dedicates a minimum of 15% of our marketing budget to Black models, creators and freelancers.

Origin

Jewelry has signified milestones in my life long before I even knew it. With the birth of every child, my father gifted my mother a token to mark our arrivals. For the first, a pair of lapis lazuli earrings. For the second, a string of pearls. And for me—their last shot at a daughter—a gold Cartier watch with a periwinkle crocodile strap. I remember my mother ogling a unique pair of Georg Jensen earrings, trying desperately to communicate the beauty of the fluid design, which at the time, I didn’t quite grasp. I remember sitting on her bed, picking through every treasure, listening to every tale. Wins, losses, celebrations, and departures—they were all there. The marvel of design is no longer lost on me, and the ritual of marking life’s moments with jewelry is what led me to Oremme. - Emilie, founder
