Beauty without harm

Although diamonds are supposed to be forever, it’s the human love affair with gold that has been truly long term.

For thousands of years gold has been prized for its beauty and value.

Gold will always be beautiful, however we now cannot ignore the negative impact that we know mining brings, and although we are absolutely passionate about precious metals and the jewellery we create we promise as a company to take steps to minimise the impact we have on the environment.

To address this we try to use recycled gold and silver in as many as our pieces as possible. All our bespoke jewellery is offered in recycled gold and there are select pieces on our website that are in recycled gold.

As of 2020 more and more designs will be sold as standard in recycled gold – so please watch the website and feel free to hold us accountable to this!

Recycled gold jewellery comes from recycled or refined precious metals.

When casting a piece in recycled or re-refined gold the metal is refined back into its pure element, thereby having exactly the same high quality as newly mined metal.

Recycled metals are an eco-friendly option as the metal is already in existence, meaning that the land and environment doesn’t have to be tampered with in order to mine for more metals.

If a piece isn’t currently available in recycled gold and you would like to purchase it using recycled gold please contact bespoke@rachelbalfour.com and we will arrange this for you.
