Recycled or fair trade metals
As the jewellery industry has a pretty poor track record of the environmental impact it has and how workers are treated we do our very best to make sure our jewellery has a high ethical standard.
All metal used in our jewellery is recycled which means that we don't use metal newly extracted from the ground.
Up on request we also offer fair trade gold and silver. These metals are newly extracted from the ground but with the difference that it contributes to an organised small scale mining market where the workers have proper working conditions and communities are built up to support the workers and their families with housing, schools and medical care.
We are proud to be a part of the Fairmined community who supplies us with these metals. You can read more about them here http://www.fairmined.org/ .
