Do Amore Wedding Rings: Jewelry For A Cause

Wedding rings are such a simple, yet powerful concept that represent the union of two people. They can mean so much to a couple. What if a couple could do more with their ring without having to pay extra?

Do Amore is a ring company committed to social-change and ethics. Wedding rings bring together two people for their lifetime. With Do Amore, every ring also helps two people in need for their lifetimes. Every ring purchase gives clean water to two people for life by co-founding a water well. Water wells provide a sustainable source for clean water so that these people can improve their lives permanently. All of charity work takes place in communities within developing countries.

Do Amore is also committed to a high standard of ethics. All of their rings are made in the U.S.A, the diamonds are conflict-free, and at least 80 percent of the rings are made from 100 percent recycled precious metals.

“We work hard to maintain a level of quality and service, in order to ensure that our customers have a great experience and get the ‘local jeweler’ feel even though we are an online store. We want our customers to treasure their rings and feel the impact they are having on others for a lifetime,” said Do Amore Founder Krish Himmatramka.

Water affects everything: health, education, poverty and life. Around the world, women and children walk hours a day to find and collect water to use for cooking, cleaning and drinking. The water they find is contaminated and infested with bacteria that will most likely make them very sick – but they have no other choice. For these families, education and work become a last priority as they attempt to meet the basic needs of life. Learn more about the water crisis on Do Amore’s “Why Water?” page.

In Latin, Do Amore means “I give with love”. The company chose this name for three reasons:

  1. You are giving a ring to your loved one, with love
  2. You are giving clean water to those in need, with love
  3. It has the words do and more in it, Do Amore rings do more

Upon graduating college Himmatramka found himself attending many weddings of friends and family. With the idea of weddings on his mind, he began to question how wedding rings, a symbol that brings together two people for life, can have a positive impact on others as well. His answer was the Do Amore concept which allows couples to give two people in a village clean water through their marriage. With this vision, he aspires to impart the idea of starting married life not only with love, but also with giving.

If you are planning a wedding and looking for a uniquely charitable twist, Do Amore’s rings may be a great option for you and your fiancee!
