Beside manufacturing individual jewelry pieces, it has been very important to us to think about our “ecological foot print”: We think, our environment is the biggest treasure that must be preserved. Everything that we do has immediate influence on our environment. This is why it is very important to us to set an example and behave responsibly:
We are very proud to say, that we upcycle materials for almost all our products – whenever possible! For instance, re-cycled precious metals are used for casting our jewelry pieces so that no new raw material (gold, silver & brass) has to be extracted.
Also, most of our jewelry pieces’ precious stones are “vintage”, meaning that they already have been part of another jewelry piece, before they found their way to our studio. We think, this is so special as every stone gets a second (or third, or fourth…) chance to adorn another piece of jewelry and already has at least one story from a former life to tell… Of course, we carefully select, clean & polish the stones ensuring that they meet our high expectations and have the best possible quality!
…it is of course also the following “little things” that can make a huge difference:
- Our website is powered by 100% renewable sources, environmental partner is the MOT-certified energy service plc, that generate electricity from 100 percent carbon dioxide-free and eco-friendly hydropower.
- For shipping our products, we use the CO2 neutral service from DHL. With GoGreen the Deutsche Post (German Post) DHL offers a worldwide program for sustainable climate protection: For achieving that, the emissions that occur during the carriage are being measured exactly, balanced, and reduced as far as possible. This is why all of our parcels can be shipped a 100 % emission free & climate-neutral.
- To safe the environment, we only send our invoice attached to the mail when confirming the order.
- Also when it comes to wrapping our products, we try to recycle as much as possible. This is why we always reuse our silk/packing paper.
