Pure Diamond is proud to offer recycled option for all precious metals we custom make our jewellery, a way to make our beautiful products sustainable and green. 

Sustainable and green engagement ring manufacturing refers to the use of eco-friendly and ethical practices in the production of engagement rings. 

  1. Ethical sourcing: The use of ethically sourced materials, such as recycled metals, lab-grown diamonds, or fair-trade gemstones. This ensures that the materials used in the production of the ring do not contribute to environmental damage or unethical labor practices.

  2. Environmentally-friendly production: The use of environmentally friendly practices, such as the reduction of waste and carbon emissions during the production process. This can include using recycled materials or implementing energy-efficient production methods.

  3. Minimal packaging: Engagement rings that are packaged in minimal, recyclable or reusable packaging, to reduce waste and minimize the environmental impact.

  4. Long-lasting and durable designs: Engagement ring designs that are durable and long-lasting, made from high-quality materials that do not require frequent replacement.

  5. Responsible disposal: Engagement ring manufacturers who provide responsible disposal options for the ring at the end of its lifecycle, such as recycling or repurposing.

By choosing a sustainable and green engagement ring, you can ensure that your purchase is environmentally and socially responsible, and aligns with your values.

If desired the client can elect to use recycled gold for custom jewellery.

What is Recycled Gold and Why is it better?

Recycled gold is gold that has been reclaimed from old jewelry, industrial products, and other sources and then refined and processed to be used again. The process of recycling gold involves melting down the old jewelry and removing any impurities, resulting in pure gold that can be used to create new jewelry.

Recycling gold is better for the environment and for people than mining new gold for several reasons:

  1. Reduces the Environmental Impact of Mining: Mining new gold requires the excavation and removal of large amounts of earth, which can cause extensive environmental damage, including soil erosion, habitat destruction, water pollution, and toxic waste. Recycling gold reduces the need for new mining and helps to mitigate these impacts.

  2. Reduces the Demand for Conflict Minerals: Mining for gold can contribute to the exploitation and abuse of people in conflict regions, including child labour, forced labour, and human rights abuses. By using recycled gold, there is less demand for newly mined gold, which helps to reduce the demand for conflict minerals.

  3. Reduces Energy Consumption: Mining and refining gold can consume significant amounts of energy, which contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. Recycled gold requires less energy to process, reducing the carbon footprint of jewelry production.

  4. Cost-effective: Using recycled gold can be cost-effective for jewelry manufacturers, as they can purchase recycled gold at a lower cost than newly mined gold.

In summary, using recycled gold in jewelry production is an environmentally and socially responsible choice. It reduces the environmental impact of mining, mitigates the demand for conflict minerals, reduces energy consumption, and can be cost-effective.
