The Jewelry Industry Is A Dirty Business
We are in a business where all of our products come from the Earth, and the jewelry industry, in particular, relies heavily upon mining companies to generate source materials for their products.
The sad fact is — mining is a very “dirty” business and the production of one beautiful gold ring will generate five tons of environmental waste, contaminating water and lands which endangers the health and lives of humans and animals.
The negative impacts of mining have forced people and businesses alike to take a long, hard look at where their products come from, how they are made, and to what extent they are impacting the Earth, its lands and its people.
As Goldworks continues to grow and embrace our future, we hope that you understand, welcome and support our heartfelt endeavors to make socially and environmentally responsible choices.
Recycled gold products share the exquisite beauty and elegance of virgin precious metals. There is absolutely no difference in appearance, quality, or value. It just makes sense to buy 100% recycled metals and conflict-free diamonds and responsibly-sourced gemstones!
It is our moral obligation to continually respect basic human rights around the world and to protect the environment by conserving energy and recycling.
All precious metals used at Goldworks including gold, platinum, palladium, sterling silver, and fine silver are 100% recycled from the Earth’s existing metal supply. We feel GREAT about that and you can too!
