Romantic minimalism

 

In the middle of the Amsterdam Jordaan area, in a charming street near the Anne Frank House and Western Church you will find a jewelry atelier. Since 2005 this is the workspace of the designers duo Hanck Hengeveld, opposites that complement each other completely: man and woman, bold and delicate, minimalistic and detailed. One crazy about the latest technology, the other attracted to old techniques. Together, they can do anything. They play with fire, hammers, drawbench and rolling mills, as well with technology of laser, 3D design, 3d printing and casting.

Marleen Hengeveld works under the label AMMA Jewelry. Graduated as a goldsmith and art historian, her work is mostly inspired by art, ancient techniques and the beauty of gemstones and pearls. In her work Marleen combines age-old techniques with modern-day design. This fusion results in timeless yet contemporary pieces of jewelry which show a fine and delicate craftmanship and a passion for detail.

Matthijs Hanck Jewelry stands for flawless, minimalist, exclusive and innovative design. With a passion for innovation and many years of technical experience he has the expertise to make the link from rough idea into 3D design and final piece of jewel perfectly. His bold minimalist designs are popular as wedding bands and you could call this his specialty. Have a look at his bold minimalistic designs.

Besides engagement rings, wedding bands and their home collection, you can go to Hanck Hengeveld for made to order design, jewelry repairs and corporate gifts. The duo also regularly works on projects together. In 2014 the studio was commissioned by the International Campaign for Tibet to realize a silver medal for the Dalai Lama.

 

Social responsibility


AMMA Jewelry in no way condones the use of conflict diamonds. Therefore AMMA Jewelry only works with diamond suppliers, who's diamonds originate from legitimate sources not involved in the support of conflict diamonds and abide by the kimberly process. Unfortunately, it's impossible and naive to ensure for 100 %.

AMMA Jewelry solemny uses gold from company's certified as conflict-free gold refiners according to the guidelines of the cfsi (conflict-free sourcing initiative).

This means these companies:

  • Do not accept any primary gold (mined gold)
  • Have a totally transparent supply chain
  • Train and educate its employees specifically about these issues
  • Takes responsibility towards its customers
