All silver is fully recycled from various sources.

One of the main sources that I use is from redundant x-ray films from the NHS.

GOLD:

All Gold is from recycled sources.

SCOTTISH GOLD:

 

 

I am one of the very few jewellers in Scotland that uses genuine Scottish gold.

In its raw form, it is 24ct and incredibly soft so I refine it here to allow me to use it in my designs. All my Scottish gold is hand picked from a select few waterways in Aberdeenshire using a technique called snipping. This is where the prospector uses snorkelling equipment and floats down the river hand picking it from the river bed. No machines are used & the disturbance is minimal. In turn, this has a huge reduction of environmental damage and animal habitats.

GEMSTONES & HEALING CRYSTALS:

To the best of my knowledge, my gemstones and healing crystals are responsibly sourced from suppliers that are in contact with mines direct. This ensures that the miners have better health & safety equipment and are fairly paid for what they retrieve. I also use recycled gemstones which again has a minimal impact on the earth and the environment.

PACKAGING:

All packaging is FSC certified. The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests.
