WHY RECYCLED METALS?
Gold mining has a history of civil war, labor abuses, and environmental devastation. As part of our commitment to social & environmental responsibility, we handcraft our fine jewelry from recycled precious metals. Our objective is to diminish the negative impacts of mining by reducing the demand for newly mined metals.
Recycled precious metals are an important component of Benchmark's commitment to the environment. We are also committed to environmental responsibility throughout the jewelry production process. We look for ways to reduce environmental impact, such as emissions cleaning systems and processes to prevent contaminants from being released into the environment.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
It means that we are using precious metals that currently exist and that have been previously mined. One of our many environmental objectives here is to diminish the negative impacts of mining by reducing the demand for newly mined metals. Benchmark is heavily committed to environmental responsibility throughout the production process. We are constantly looking for ways to reduce environmental impact by minimizing emissions and contaminants.
Benchmark rings are made with recycled metals of the highest standard and our selection of metal options brings exciting new looks into the marketplace without sacrificing quality. Benchmark gold wedding bands are made from 100% recycled gold, sourced directly from suppliers with SCS Recycled Content certification
