Many people are not quite sure what to do with their old jewellery that they don’t wear anymore. Donating them to second hand shops can be an option, but most of the time these pieces end up sitting in your jewellery box for years.



We want to offer an easy way for people to recycle their jewellery, and provide an incentive to do so. When precious metals get put back into the production cycle and repurposed, this reduces the use of energy and resources, which helps to support our environment.

The Reality


30,000

 tonnes of silver is used every year in jewellery and industrial production.
15% of silver used is from recycled sources. The rest is still mined.
200,000,000 tonnes of CO² is the amount of carbon emissions we save every year by recycling globally.
