Picasso’s Granddaughter Designs Wedding Bands Worth Their Weight in Gold

Jewelry as an investment?  When buying gold to hold as an asset, it comes in heavy pure 24k gold bullion you would normally store in your safe. Not something you get to enjoy, despite the beauty and agelessness of gold. The founders of Menē saw the gap here—why not wear your investment and let your wedding band (or any piece of jewelry for that matter) be worth its weight in gold? Literally. When you purchase a piece, you receive the exact weight of gold, going rate of gold per gram, and the exact mark up. That’s the sort of rare transparency we get on board with.

Menē is crafted from pure 24 karat gold or platinum found in nature. The difference in purity over man-made chemical 14k-18k gold or rose and white gold alloyed with copper and nickel is dramatic. Pure gold is indestructible, and will mold to you—a nice metaphor for a wedding band says we.

And who better to create these artistic tokens of your love than Picasso’s granddaughter Diana Widmaier Picasso. The Parisian art historian and curator is the co-founder and creative brains behind the brand (that’s Chief Artistic Officer to you, Sir), which she launched six years ago in collaboration with Louise Bourgeois’s estate, the Easton Foundation. In other words, that’s one elegant investment.

And, wellll… if it doesn’t work out, you can always get your investment back. Unlike your love… (which is only funny cause, in this case, it’s true).
