What is recycled gold & silver?
All of my handmade jewellery uses recycled solid gold and sterling silver.
When it comes to choosing the perfect piece of jewellery, it’s great to consider something that is not only beautiful but also sustainable. One option is by choosing jewellery that has been made from solid recycled gold or sterling silver. Not only does recycled gold and sterling silver reduce the environmental impact of mining, but it also helps to preserve our natural resources, it is just as high quality as newly mined gold and silver.
Recycled gold and sterling silver is an environmentally friendly and socially responsible alternative to mined gold and silver. I purchase my gold and sterling silver from a company that has made the gold or sterling silver into sheet and wire by melting down and purifying existing gold and sterling silver jewellery, coins, and other items. This process conserves natural resources and reduces the negative impacts of gold and silver mining, such as deforestation, habitat destruction, and pollution.
Recycled gold and sterling silver is an excellent choice for those looking to make a more sustainable and socially responsible purchase. It conserves natural resources, has a smaller carbon footprint, supports fair labour practices and is cost-effective. By opting to buy solid gold and sterling silver jewellery made from recycled gold and sterling silver you are making a positive impact on the environment and society.
When choosing your new piece of solid gold or sterling silver jewellery made by hand by me you’ll know that you’re making a responsible choice.

What are Lab grown diamonds?
I’ve recently decided to start using Lab grown diamond in my handmade solid gold and sterling silver jewellery. Lab-grown diamonds, also known as synthetic diamonds, have become increasingly popular in recent years as an alternative to traditional mined diamonds. These diamonds are created in a laboratory setting using advanced technology and are virtually identical to their mined counterparts in terms of physical and chemical properties. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of choosing lab-grown diamonds over mined diamonds.
One of the most significant benefits of lab-grown diamonds is their environmental impact. The process of mining for natural diamonds can have a significant environmental impact, including deforestation, soil erosion, and damage to water sources. In contrast, lab-grown diamonds are created in a controlled environment, which eliminates the need for mining and the associated environmental impact.
Another benefit of lab-grown diamonds is their cost. Lab-grown diamonds are typically less expensive than mined diamonds of comparable quality. This is due in part to the fact that lab-grown diamonds are created in a controlled environment and the process is more efficient than mining for natural diamonds. As a result, lab-grown diamonds offer an excellent value for consumers who are looking for high-quality, ethically-sourced diamonds at an affordable price.
In addition to their environmental and cost benefits, lab-grown diamonds are also a more ethical option for consumers. The diamond industry has a long history of human rights abuses, particularly in countries where diamonds are mined. Lab-grown diamonds eliminate the need for mining, which reduces the risk of human rights abuses associated with diamond mining.
Lab-grown diamonds are also more readily available than mined diamonds. Because the process of creating lab-grown diamonds is more efficient, they can be produced in larger quantities and more quickly than mined diamonds. This means that consumers have a wider range of options when it comes to lab-grown diamonds and can often find the perfect diamond for their needs more easily.
In terms of quality, lab-grown diamonds are virtually identical to mined diamonds in terms of physical and chemical properties. They have the same hardness, brilliance, and fire as mined diamonds, and are just as durable. They are graded using the same standards as mined diamonds, which ensures that the quality of lab-grown diamonds is consistent and of a high standard.
Lab-grown diamonds can be used in all the same applications as mined diamonds, including engagement rings, wedding bands, and other jewelry. They can be cut, polished, and set in the same way as mined diamonds, and are an excellent choice for consumers who are looking for an ethically-sourced, environmentally-friendly, and cost-effective diamond option.
In conclusion, lab-grown diamonds are an excellent alternative to mined diamonds. They are more environmentally-friendly, less expensive, more ethical, and more readily available than mined diamonds, while providing the same quality and brilliance. Choosing a lab-grown diamond is a great way to ensure that you are getting a high-quality diamond that has been ethically sourced and is kinder to the environment.
