The recycling 'secret'

Jewellery making is probably the oldest recycling industry (no-one throws it away) and it has always been reused. We take yesterday’s memories and refine them, and this has happened for thousands of years.

The World Gold Council calculates that about 25% of all gold used for jewellery each year is recycled, but it is mixed with newly mined gold; the same happens with silver, making both metals difficult to certify as being ethical.

We realised that if we could keep new metals separate from reused gold and silver, we could also make our collection unique in another way: by using only recycled metals.
