Remembering good memories can improve your mental health

The importance of good memories

We are so passionate about how important memories are to every single one of us; they define our journey, and to us especially, they are at the heart of why we started elleroo.

When Row’s mum died, we wanted to find a way to remember all of the special times we had shared, the ones that really made us smile. When we couldn’t find anything to capture our memories, our ideas developed into an amazing journey of designing and creating our own.

A good life is a collection of moments that become happy memories. Very often, life’s events make you realise how important ‘remembering’ is.

A university experience is not just one that provides a qualification, but it can be one that opens a whole new world of opportunities, friendships and takes life into a new path. How wonderful it is to capture that moment when you graduate and keep that memory forever. A moment to celebrate all that has been achieved.

We all want to feel good and remembering back to happy moments – especially when the current situation is not so happy – is a proven way to achieve a sense of happiness and a positive mood. This is why we created our personalised jewellery range – to help you commemorate those special moments, from first kisses to special places.
