Our Story

Mementum started as a gift for my long-distance girlfriend. 

Something that would remind her of our story together, no matter where she went.

I'm a software engineer geek with a jewelry-making hobby. The idea of adding digital memories to a piece of jewelry popped in my head one night, and I accepted the challenge.

Countless hours, many months, and a few failed attempts later, I finally completed a bracelet.

Inside the bracelet, I left my favorite pictures of us, along with a letter. I was really surprised to see her reaction. (in our 3 years of relationship I’ve never seen a reaction like this with my previous gifts).

The gift idea stuck upon my girlfriend (now wife 😉) and me for months. After long meditation and the right timing, we dropped everything that we were doing to commit to make Mementum a reality.

We have spent hundreds of hours: researching, interviewing, prototyping, developing, coding and testing.  

Along the side of a very talented team of professionals working with us on branding, communication, jewelry design, packaging, and engineering.  

Truth is, we never thought we would create a business out of this, but something that has the power to connect us with our loved ones deserves to have its own voice and to be shared with everyone.

We hope you enjoy the Mementum experience as much as we enjoy making it.

If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to  contact us!

Sincerely,

Howard Kim & Kathia Marroquin founders of Mementum
