Every Whitehouse Brothers piece is manufactured using 100% recycled metals. Due to the unethical nature of virgin gold mining, we have opted to only use certified recycled metals in our rings. Recycled metals can come from a number of items including:
- Scrap Jewelry
- Scrap Electronic Equipment
- Scrap Industrial gold products
When items are determined to be scrap, they are sent to a precious metal refinery to be turned back into 24k pure gold. Once the metal has been refined, we purchase 24k gold from a certified recycler, which we then turn into 14k and 18k in our manufacturing facility. It is important to us to keep our ethical standards high, so we will always continue this practice now and into the future.
