The Precious Metal cycle
Similar to the problem of gemstone waste in the jewelry industry, there is also the issue of sustainability in the metal components used to craft jewelry. The concept of metal recycling is not a new one, but access to jewelry components made from recycled metals has improved drastically as demand for sustainable jewelry increases. Additionally, small businesses are now able to collect metal waste created in their design process and send it to be fully recycled.
We are consistently working to both salvage all precious metal scraps produced and purchase finished components made from certified recycled metals. Our solid sterling silver and 14k gold pieces are made from 100% certified recycled material. We also offer Fairmined Certified sterling silver and 14k yellow gold where possible with the goal of expanding this offering as material becomes available.
