There is a beautiful quote about family from Friedrich Nietzsche. The famous philosopher once wrote, “In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.”
It’s true, isn’t it? No matter how hard the daily grind may be, it’s the love that you get from your family at the end of it that makes it all feel better. You come home, you see your loved ones and you’re instantly reminded why it’s all worthwhile. This special kind of love deserves to be celebrated, and that’s where MADLY can help.
As a way of celebrating the ties that bind, MADLY invites you to create a ring that is as unique as your family. Using specially-chosen stones – each one signifying the birth month of each family member – you are able to put the entire story of your family onto a beautiful piece of heirloom jewellery that will accompany you everywhere you go.
And it’s not just family in the traditional sense that these rings apply to.
If you pause to think about it, your best friends are like an extension of family, and of yourself. They know you – sometimes better than you know yourself – and they are there with you through thick and thin. In this spirit, MADLY also invites you to think about the friendships that have shaped you, and how you can commemorate your BFF too.
Making a bespoke piece of jewellery can be daunting, but that’s where Team MADLY comes in. With their artisans on hand to guide you every step of the way, they take all the anxiety out of the process, so you can fully enjoy this special experience. They’ll listen to your wishes, collaborate with you on the details, and present you with a beautifully-finished symbolic piece you will treasure forever.
