I have recently received compelling stories from customers as to why they have chosen our concrete bands to symbolically represent their marriage. It has me thinking that it might be beneficial if I share some information about concrete.

Perhaps the earliest known occurrence of cement was twelve million years ago (according to Wikipedia). It is amazing to think that a material that was discovered millions of years ago is still being used today, and not to mention innovatively! ie. jewelry!

Concrete is a sustainable and affordable resource which is made up of an aggregate, cement and water. When you think of the definition of aggregate it is described as, “a whole formed by combining several typically disparate elements.” Sounds a lot like marriage, doesn’t it?

Concrete only gets stronger and better over time. It takes many years for concrete to reach its true strength. It also will change over time with daily wear to reflect your tendencies.
Concrete is strong enough to survive many disasters, such as fires, earthquakes and storms. Also sounds a little like marriage. We all have our ups and downs and know that we can make it through.

So what have customers said about why they bought concrete rings?
One customer told us, “Our 17th Anniversary wedding bands made of concrete and steel. Strong and unique, like the love we have for each other. A friend of mine told me the other day that we were the only couple he could ever imagine trading in their gold and diamond wedding bands for concrete and steel.”

And another, It’s just because we thought they looked cool, they were affordable and something more snazzy than a simple gold band. I’ll proudly wear it knowing just how well it represents the fabric of what we have.”

There you have it! If you are looking for something to represent the growing strength in your relationship, the combining of many elements to make one, and something that will weather the hard times, then concrete is a perfect choice!

  1. As a civil engineering student, the use of steel and concrete brings structures and their intended permanence to mind. Once I get a job I will be buying something from this website (that I have been drooling over for a solid year) for sure.

  2. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to repurpose concrete in this way? For example, if I chisel out a chunk of a sidewalk can it be formed into a wedding band like this?

  3. There is something else that is fascinating about concrete- it can be colored! I have seen great floors done in colored concrete that have been sealed, so the color stays true. Could same be done for the jewelry? Also, what about a concrete bead necklace that was beads all the way around?
    Great work!
