Why Do we Use Recycled silver?

Our jewellery is made of recycled silver which is tested for purity and then a small amount of 100% silver is added to ensure the end product is 925 silver quality. We use recycled silver as this reduces the amount of silver that is mined globally and makes our environmental impact smaller without reducing the quality of our jewellery.

Why Do we Use Recycled silver?

By using recycled silver we are producing a two thirds less carbon emissions than mined silver and we are helping to reduce the consumption of natural resources. Our jewellery is tested by Intertek for an analysis of Nickle, Lead and Cadmium to be certain that these pass international standards. Our metals are hypoallergenic so they are suitable for sensitive skin.

What is Vermeil plating?

All of our gold or rose gold jewellery are vermeil plated with 18K gold or 18K rose gold. This means that the layer of gold on top of the base metal sterling silver is at least 2.5 microns thick, a micron is 1/1000th of a millimeter. Normal plating thickness can be between 0.5 - 1 micron. We use high quality vermeil plating to ensure long lasting wear of your precious pieces.

Our Packaging

We make our packaging so beautiful so you will hopefully love to keep it to store your precious jewellery. Our packaging is 100% recyclable and is made out of FSC certified responsible materials. This ensures that the trees that are harvested are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally so by making the packaging we are not depleting nature.
Our ribbon does not contain any silk to ensure our products are vegan friendly. Our jewellery pouch is made from vegan friendly faux suede. Our tissue paper is acid free, recyclable and biodegradable.
The perfect eco-friendly touch to the perfect gift.

Our E-Commerce Boxes

There is nothing better than receiving a pretty box of beautiful things in the post, however we wanted to do this but in an eco-friendly way.

Our boxes are made from 100% recycled paper. We use grasspaper, a revolutionary new material made from sun dried grass for the wrapping and sticker. A little sprinkle of 100% recycled shredded British paper waste, to pad and secure your items. Your box is then finished with our kraft paper tape, to ensure your products arrive safely.

All of the packaging materials that are delivered to you are from FSC certified suppliers and are 100% recyclable in your normal recycling bin.
