Q & A

What do you mean by recycled silver?

Most of our jewellery is made from ECOSILVER- a ‘brand‘ of recycled sterling silver by a British supplier Cooksongold. We also repair and remodel old jewellery.

Only about 30% of silver comes from silver mines and the rest is a by-product of copper refining so it is really not an ‘ethical’ or green metal. That is why we use recycled silver and when possible also Fairtrade certified.

What does ethical jewellery mean?

We call ourselves ethical jewellers because we minimise the use of newly mined metals, we source our gems from suppliers who care about the environment and people involved in production and processing of minerals, we do not use unnecessary chemicals in the workshop, we lower our carbon footprint by minimising the use of machinery, we do not mass-produce anything and create most of our pieces to order.

Could we do any better than that? Sure, we are not perfect and we are always learning. Hopefully we will be perfect one day but for now we are doing our best. If you have a question or comment with regards to our production don’t be shy- get in touch.
