Our ultimate goal is to use 100% recycled precious metals for all our products. We obtain our precious metals from certified refiners that have been proven to meet the standards set by organizations such as the Responsible Mining Initiative and London Bullion Market Association. Our gold and silver fine jewelry is made mainly of recycled materials, and we continue to work with our suppliers to increase the proportion of recycled metal we are able to use in our products. Current market pressures make recycled platinum more difficult to obtain, but we expect it to become more available over time.
Why Use Recycled Metals?
- Environmental devastation due to dirty mining practices;
- Poor safety standards;
- Inhumanelabor practices;
- Rights violations of indigenous peoples
