Pre-loved stones purchased second hand and then cut to size by a local stone cutter. The reason we opted to do this is that sourcing ethical stones is difficult, in part because there are no established bodies tracing gemstones from mine to market. The rings are cast in 100% certified recycled sterling silver. Each ring is handmade and therefore will contain slight variations, making it unique to you. The bezels are 9ct yellow Fairmined gold. The Fairmined standard assures social development, organizational development, environmental protection, a healthy and safe workplace for miners.
