Your marriage will be the culmination of all the marriages that came before. Grandparents who love to the end. Parents who molded your values and taught you what it means to be a couple. Ancestors you never met who began the traditions you follow today.
Getting married is never a one generation thing. It will reverberate across time, borders, and languages. The rings that will band you together must be made for more than a lifetime.
Once upon a Switzerland time, Jean Jacques Arbenz founded the company that would become Furrer-Jacot. At no point did he put a quill to paper and declare his jewelry would last multiple generations. He did not envision them being handed down from family to family. He certainly never imagined it being discussed on “the internet.”
What Jean Jacques Arbenz did declare was that each piece of jewelry would be individually produced in Schaffhausen – a Swiss city synonymous with craftsmanship. Jewelry would only be made from platinum, gold, and palladium. Each craftsman would know his stuff. Each bit of equipment was met with ridged Swiss standards.
