The jewelry business isn’t always particularly eco-conscious. We’re trying to change that. While gold jewelry is often given as a symbol of love or celebration, gold mining is actually an ugly business. Over time, ecosystems have been contaminated, workers exploited and land violated. Right now, the number one cause of mercury pollution worldwide is gold mining.
Recycled gold however leaves a much smaller footprint. You can do your part to help the environment by choosing jewelry made with recycled gold. Gold and other precious metals can be melted down and reused repeatedly without effecting the quality, making recycled gold a naturally renewable resource.
Lauren Franks Fine Jewelry makes use of recycled metals and conflict free diamonds to contribute in small part towards protecting the environment.
