We use high quality single mine origin gold (SMO). This SMO certification means your gold can be traced on its whole journey. It is responsibly sourced, exceptional quality and comes from legitimate mining operations, with no ties to conflict. The local community benefit, and more can be leaned about this from our supplier here: SMO Gold We also refine and recycle our own gold too.
When choosing to buy one of our stainless steel products, such as our Damascus rings, or stainless steel rings, you can feel reassured that it is classed as a green product, as it is 100% recyclable. It is not coated with any toxic materials, and does not produce any toxic run off. Its environmental impact is minimal when compared to other materials.
We use Eco-friendly jewellery boxes, which are FSC®-certified. The glue, paper and cardboard used in the production of this jewellery box, are all 100% eco-friendly. Each box is stamped with the ECO-logo at the base of the box and has the FSC®-logo stamped underneath the foam.
We have reduced our paper usage and waste by switching to our in-house database system, removing the need for printed copies of orders and long paper trails. We also use recycled paper for printing.
For our jewellery we use Jiffy green strong durable packaging. This packaging is fully Compostable, and it contains 100% recycled paper fibre cushioning. The packaging is less wasteful, and also fully recyclable itself too. Another benefit of this packaging is that not only is it strong and durable, but it is also lightweight, and therefore reduces the carbon footprint of it.
For our larger crafted items we reuse our delivery boxes and packaging where possible to cut down on waste.
We use Eco-mailing bags for posting some of our items, which are produced from sugar cane. Not only are these bags fully recyclable but they are carbon neutral. The carbon dioxide taken from the atmosphere in the growing process offsets the carbon dioxide emitted through production and transport. These bags have no compromise on the strength or quality, and are an eco friendly alternative to standard polythene bags.
We have made many efforts to make our products as plastic free as possible. The cellophane wrap used to protect and present some products is biodegradable, vegan friendly, compostable, and food grade certified. We have removed the use of plastic tape on our products, and instead use metal staples (fully recyclable) or strong biodegradable starch based tape to seal packages.
We are very pleased to also introduce our range of eco gift wrapping made from 100% recycled paper, which has not been bleached, it is printed with environmentally friendly vegetable based inks, contains no plastic packaging, it can be fully recycled, it is 100% compostable, and the designs are lovely.
We have removed the use of plastic tape on our products, and instead use strong Eco-friendly tape to seal packages, hemp twine and paper tags rather than plastic ribbons.
The tape is is FSC responsible sourced, fully recyclable, and contains biodegradable adhesive.
