Sustainability has become an important topic in the world of today. However, it is not something we often hear about in the field of jewellery. We do our best to make the process as fair as possible and as little harmful for the environment. We do buy Responsible gold at Schöne Edelmetaal B.V.
The Responsible Gold Guideline is based on the OECD guideline. They do not supply minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas. The second life gold is refined by Umicore Precious Metals. They operate as one of the world’s largest precious metals recycling facilities.
Social sustainability is very important for us. Often jewels are produced in third world countries by poor people. We only work with Dutch goldsmiths who live and work in the Netherlands. We do use 99% recycled gold, which we do buy in The Netherlands
