Materials & Care
Our Bronze Jewelry is Ethically made, locally here in New Mexico, from recycled metals.
We love bronze because it carries a rustic look and feel. Its pretty and shiny when polished but ages beautifully as well.
Bronze is an alloy of copper. Because of the copper content sometimes bronze jewelry can cause the skin it touches to turn a greenish hue. This is not harmful and does not mean the jewelry is poorly made.
To maintain the shine of your bronze jewelry use a polishing cloth regularly to restore its lustre. Make sure to remove your jewelry before swimming or showering and store in a safe, clean and dry location.
If you love that rustic look the bronze can acquire then no extra care is needed.
The beauty and preciousness of pure gold is unmatched in human culture. Gold is rare and precious because it is literally stardust, forged in the explosions of supernovas or colliding neutron stars. It travelled to earth on meteors and debris millions of years ago and has hidden within our lands ever since.
The Importance of Ethical & Recycled Gold
Since its discovery, the value of this metal has caused our society to go after it at any cost. Traditional gold mining methods are detrimental to the environment, polluting local waters with arsenic and other toxic chemicals, and laying waste to the land it’s found in. Modern day gold mining often involves slavery or indentured servitude with horrific consequences to the lives forced to work these extremely poor and dangerous conditions.
Our gold jewelry is ethically produced in the USA and is 100% Certified Recycled and Sustainable by SCS Global. We use recycled gold over “ethically mined” gold as to not cause further damage to the environment.
10k or 14k Gold is a great option for a more active lifestyle because it is stronger and scratches and bends less than 18k or 24k gold.
Gold is a precious metal that should be cared for to maintain its value and beauty. Gently clean your gold jewelry with a soft cloth and warm water, or a soft jewelry polishing cloth to restore its glow and keep clean from light buildup from daily activities. Make sure to remove your jewelry before swimming or showering and store in a safe, clean and dry location.
