What Are Ethical Wedding Rings?
Ethical wedding rings aren't just jewelry pieces. They are expressions of love extending beyond the couple to honor the environment.
Our team of Jewelers carefully create these rings, embracing eco-friendly materials and ethical practices throughout the process. We are constantly reviewing all of our procedures and sourcing practices, and if it isn't ethical, it's thrown out or updated.
What makes them unique?
- Eco-Friendly Materials. Our Ethical wedding rings feature recycled metals and reclaimed diamonds and miner direct montana sapphires. This helps reduce the environmental impact of mining because the materials are already available. We simply rework them into something stunning and beautiful.
- Ethical Sourcing. Ethical sourcing respects the environment and the people involved in the supply chain. We say Ethical, not sustainable, because any extractive action is inherently not sustainable. The difference is important. Our education into the environmental effects of mining taught us that we are responsible for what happens in YITM’s name at every step of the supply chain.
- Eco-Conscious Manufacturing. We focus on eco-friendly production techniques, minimizing waste and energy consumption. Our studio is wind powered and all of our dust from fabrication is recycled to collect every bit of gold. Nothing is wasted. Find out more about all of our practices on our ETHICS page.
The Environmental Impact of Conventional Wedding Rings
Traditional jewelry mining leaves behind a trail of ecological destruction.
- Water Use. Traditional mining consumes vast amounts of water, contributing to water scarcity in many regions.
- Deforestation. The quest for precious metals leads to deforestation, disrupting delicate ecosystems.
- Carbon Footprint. The energy-intensive processes of mining and refining metals contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.
- Communities and Ecosystems. Traditional mining can displace indigenous communities and harm local ecosystems. It can lead to soil and water pollution, impacting wildlife and human health.
Responsible Jewelry Practices
Responsible wedding rings take a different approach. Our approach aligns with environmental consciousness and our ethical responsibility values.
- Reclaimed Diamond Melee These rings use gems from regions free of conflict, ensuring they don't fund violence or exploitation. This certification is limited and we prefer to go above and beyond by using reclaimed diamond melee.
- Recycled Metals. Our collection features recycled gold whenever possible. Right now its about 98% of our jewelry. OUr goal is to reduce the need for new mining and resource depletion.
- Reduced Carbon Footprint. A commitment to sustainability extends to reducing the carbon footprint throughout the manufacturing process. Our Denver facility is 100% wind Powered
