As well as using Fairtrade gold where possible (for example all of our plain wedding rings are Fairtrade gold) all of our gold jewellery is made using 100% recycled metal.
In addition to both of these options we can also up-cycle your own hallmarked precious metal into new jewellery for you, which is great if you have a relatively simple design like one of our Molten bands as old metal can sometimes crack whist being manipulated if it contains impurities and therefore more complicated designs are often not possible.
If the precious metal does not have a hallmark then we can send it away for fineness testing for a relatively small fee – this usually takes about 1-2 weeks. If the gold is not suitable for use in your new jewellery then we can scrap it and use the money as a down payment instead. Come in to the shop along with your Granny’s wedding ring (!) and we can go through the options available to you.
