Our Ethics – We buy our gold and silver solely from Cookson Precious Metals in the UK. Cookson offer an Eco Silver range, which is a green alternative to sterling silver and is made of 100% recycled and scrap silver products – scrap jewellery, medical equipment, electronics and giftware. All of their eco silver products come with a certificate of authenticity.
If you would like your jewellery made with Eco Silver please ask me for a quote – as a guide this adds 10-30% onto the normal cost of standard sterling 925 silver, but please ask me to work a price out for you if you would like jewellery made with this ethical option.
You can see our recently made 5 stackable Eco Sterling Silver and 9ct Gold Rings here.
