We believe in transparency, quality over quantity and doing things right so we’re sharing just exactly what makes us different with you:
We have high standards and that starts with the very metals that go into your pieces. Our crafting process starts with ethically and sustainably produced gold and silver grains from Germany. While some workshops will melt down their own ingots which leads to imbalances in their materials, ours uses casting grains specifically formulated for long-lasting and tarnish free pieces.
Our grain formula comes from decades of experience in the industry and is crafted specifically for consistency, durability and shine. Each grain is meticulously inspected to make sure it passes our purity test before it’s melted down so we get it right every. single. time.
One of the biggest issues with jewelry crafting, like fast fashion, is the unsustainable water process—especially among those who cut corners for profit.
The water used to rinse off pieces between casting, cleaning and finishing contains a vast amount of corrosive waste metals. And more often than not, this water is dumped back into a water source people and wildlife are dependent on without being treated. You’ll see rivers and streams turned all shades of red and orange which means contaminated drinking water, debilitated wildlife and potentially irreversible environmental damage.To help solve this problem, we invested in green infrastructure to minimize our wastewater footprints. We ensure that all water used to craft each piece goes through several recycling treatment machines. This lets us reuse up to 60% of the recycled water in our crafting process, which means much less waste and a lower environmental impact.
If you’re a sucker for details, we use an ultrasonic cleaning process that essentially filters and separates the water from the residual waste metals. The waste is then sent off to a recycling facility for use in other forms of manufacturing. The residual water is treated and filtered through extremely fine filters to ensure that all particles have been separated. The remaining water is transported offsite for other uses in the production ecosystem.
It’s not easy being green, but we put sustainability at the core of everything we do.
