A Deep Dive into What Makes Sustainable Gold Jewellery Ethical

A Deep Dive into What Makes Sustainable Gold Jewellery Ethical

A Deep Dive into What Makes Sustainable Gold Jewellery Ethical

The importance of sustainability stretches across all industries - including the jewellery industry.  So, how do we make our sustainable solid gold jewellery? And what are the benefits of doing so? In this blog post, we'll discuss these topics and more to help you (and us as a company) make more sustainable decisions regarding solid gold jewellery.


To begin with, the definition of sustainability is the ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In other words, it's about meeting our current needs without damaging or depleting the resources we need for future generations. For brands, this means operating in a way that doesn't harm the environment or negatively impact social welfare.


We have a different philosophy at Auric Jewellery. We only create fine jewellery in 18ct Solid Gold, with no plating or filling, because it's more sustainable. In addition, solid gold is an incredibly durable metal, so investing in a high-quality piece of jewellery is a great way to reduce your overall impact. 18ct Solid Gold jewellery can also be recycled or melted down and reused. So, even if you eventually decide to part with a piece, you can rest assured that it won't end up in a landfill.

Sustainable Practices Make Good Buying Sense, Socially And Economically


1. Fine jewellery can be sustainable when made from precious recycled materials like gold & silver. Recycling metals removes the need to mine them from raw materials, which can help avoid water contamination and deforestation.


2. Synthetic stones are more environmentally friendly. They also produce a smaller carbon footprint. In addition, synthetic diamonds can be manufactured in considerably less time than natural mined diamonds, which take months to bring about.


3. The importance of ethical sourcing practices for gemstones cannot be understated. These same principles should absolutely apply to human interactions as well. To break it down, ethical sourcing means that the gems come from places where they don't hurt the environment or people. So basically, thinking sustainably applies not only to the planet but also to its inhabitants.


4. At Auric Jewellery, we believe that buying gold jewellery shouldn't have to come at the expense of environmental destruction. That's why we partner with artisans and other companies who use recycled gold, so mining more gold becomes unnecessary. Furthermore, these partners are committed to transparent sourcing practices and only work with sustainable materials. Plus, they don't support conflict or abuse on any level – including fair wages for employees and safer working environments.


We're committed to sustainable practices and hope our customers will be too. We believe it's essential to do our part to protect the environment and ensure that future generations can enjoy the same benefits we do today. By making more sustainable choices when buying gold jewellery, we can all help to make a difference.


We recycle old gold jewellery that can't be worn anymore, but we like to think you can and pass it on to generations. We will do this by melting the materials down and casting them into new gold, recycling; email us at hello@auricjewellery.com to learn more about how you can help make a difference!
