A Sustainable Collaboration
Our journey as a Company towards sustainability is guided by the work we have done with our custom made pieces. The goal is to produce high quality jewellery and ceramics by using natural, recycled and upcycled raw materials, is so doing, lengthening the lifespan of the products and offering an alternative method of production to the material waste, pollution and use of hazardous chemical substances involved in mass and batch manufacture. Every custom made piece is made completely from scratch in our workshops, in a process that has been examined and adjusted with minimal eco-system impact in mind.
Here is a peek into the process of making custom-made jewellery:
Reclaimed gold and silver: Our choice for the raw materials to make custom-made pieces is always reclaimed or recycled precious metal. Excess metal is melted down and reused creating practically zero precious metal waste from metal casting, which is done using the ancient lost-wax method.
No base metal: We do not use base metals in our custom made jewellery because they are less long lasting, more difficult to repair and are typically chemically treated to mimic the colour of sterling silver or gold.
No silver plating or chemical treatments: By controlling our own metal alloys we reduce the amount of plating we do. We also do not use anti-tarnish or other post-production chemical treatments. This reduces significantly the water and energy we use.
Lab-grown stones: We have introduced lab-grown stones where it is We offer fully traced semi-precious and precious stones, however we recommend
Traceability: We have full traceability from metal alloy to final piece.
10 years of care: Our 10 years of care scheme means that we will help customers care for their products during ten years. When a customer brings back a custom made product with some kind of problem we repair the item according to the need.
Recycled boxes: Custom made pieces are present in a box made from 100% recycled paper.
