Latest Trends: Eco-Friendly Engagement Rings
For the creation-conscious couple, engagement rings and wedding bands made of 100% recycled gold are becoming a hot trend. But you may be wondering how choosing a ring made of recycled gold helps protect the earth. Since gold doesn’t pollute the environment the way that Styrofoam does and certainly no one is going to be throwing it into a landfill, what is the purpose of choosing a ring made of recycled precious metals?
In the case of gold and other precious metals, it isn’t the metal itself that is a threat to the environment as much as it is the mining and extraction process. Mining and extraction of precious metals can deplete an area, harm ecosystems, and do irreparable environmental damage. When you buy a ring made of recycled gold or platinum you take a small step towards reducing the environmental wear and tear of mining on the earth.
