Who We Are
Allow us, our names are Jonas and Gerrit.
We were both brought up in the same little German town and have been close friends ever since.
We both started surfing together and this quickly turned into a huge passion of ours.
Unfortunately Germany doesn’t really offer any waves and that's why we decided to swap our German homes for a VW van to spend a few months together in a van in the South-West of France.
At the age of 24, we set out and continued traveling and chasing waves together for the following 4 years. Over time, we made Spain, California, Sri Lanka, Mexico and Bali our new homes.
"We are two best friends who were both looking for romantic gifts"
But how did two surfers end up making tech jewelry?
About The Idea
Right at the beginning of our journey in France, Jonas met his girlfriend Steph who immediately joined us on our travels.
Yes, this meant that Gerrit had to third-wheel for about 2 years until he finally met his better half Dani for the first time.
Then one day Christmas came along.
And like many boyfriends out there, we weren’t sure what gift we could get Steph and Dani.
Jewelry came to our minds first, but simple jewelry wasn't special enough to us. We wanted a truly unique gift that allowed us to share our best travel memories with our girlfriends.
All of a sudden an idea popped into our head – how about we get a locket, so that we can gift them memories AND jewelry?'
"We simply couldn't find what we were looking for, so we created it ourselves!"
We quickly realized that old-fashioned lockets aren’t what we were looking for.
Regular lockets are limited to one single photo memory. Since we have so many incredible memories to share, we needed something new. Something interactive. Something that has it’s finger on the pulse of the time.
We browsed the interwebs for hours and hours.
We simply couldn’t find what we were looking for, so we decided:
“Let's revolutionize the locket ourselves.”
We went to Bali, found a small local jeweler we liked, and worked on our prototypes during the following 9 long months.
Right before Christmas the following year came, we had finished the first editions of evermée and were finally able to gift them to our girlfriends and they absolutely loved it.
What happened next?
Well, the story isn't quite finished yet.
More and more people kept asking about our jewelry and eventually we ended up where we are now – running a small business.
Over time, Dani became the star of our TikTok channel and we regularly recorded short videos for the platform.
One day – in the exact same spot in Northern Spain where they first became a couple – Gerrit asked Dani to record a cute video for TikTok with him.
Not thinking much about it, she agreed. What she couldn't know, was that he hid a proposal ring in the back part of the evermée jewelry box!
She had no clue whatsoever about what was waiting for her and you can see the full proposal in the video.
Dani and Gerrit are now engaged and getting married in October 2021.
And you know what?
Since Jonas and Gerrit are not only at team at work, but in life also, they had taken the decision to propose to their girlfriends together.
Jonas proposed to Steph only one day later in a very romantic fashion. He took her to the most Southern tip of Bali under the (not totally) false pretense to spend a weekend in solitude with her.
When they took a walk at one of the most romantic beaches of Bali, Jonas dropped on one knee.
And Steph instantly said "Yes!" a million times. Of cours, we got this one on tape, too :)
Steph and Jonas are now engaged and getting married in 2021, too.
