What's different about handmade recycled gold wedding rings?


Choosing handmade recycled gold wedding or commitment rings offers several significant benefits, making them an appealing option for many couples:

Ethical Considerations

  1. Sustainability: Recycled gold reduces the need for new mining, which is often associated with environmental destruction, water pollution, and high energy consumption.
  2. Ethical Sourcing: By opting for recycled gold, you avoid supporting the unethical labor practices and human rights abuses often linked to the mining industry.

Environmental Impact

  1. Reduced Environmental Footprint: Recycling gold has a significantly lower environmental impact compared to mining new gold. It helps conserve natural resources and reduces waste.
  2. Less Pollution: Gold mining can release toxic chemicals like cyanide and mercury into the environment. Recycling gold mitigates this risk.

Unique and Personal

  1. Craftsmanship: My handmade rings are crafted with care and attention to detail, and all of my designs are unique.
  2. Customisation: I can create custom pieces tailored to your preferences, making your wedding rings truly one-of-a-kind.
  3. Supporting Local: Purchasing handmade jewellery often means supporting local craftsmen and small businesses, contributing to the local economy.

Gold is a durable and timeless material that maintains its beauty and value over time, making it perfect for lifelong commitment symbols like wedding rings.

By choosing handmade recycled gold wedding or commitment rings, you not only obtain beautiful, unique pieces of jewellery but limit your impact on the environment, support ethical practices, and contribute to a more sustainable future.

My handmade recycled gold wedding rings are perfect for everyday non commitment wear as well! I can make my handmade recycled gold rings from 9ct or 18ct gold in White, Yellow or Rose gold in most finger sizes.
