Noble and responsible
From the very beginning, Patsy was looking for metals and gemstones that were produced or mined in a responsible manner, with respect for people and nature.
At EbbenGouD, forging is done with metal from two origins.
Fairmined metals on the one hand, which are extracted from small-scale mines where the employees work in a safe and responsible manner and are correctly remunerated for their work.
On the other hand, metals with the 'Responsible Refined' certificate are chosen.
This gold is recovered by recycling scrap gold from old jewellery, watches and electronics. Gold can always be refined back to its pure form.
Patsy advises all her customers to have old gold refined if possible.
In this way, it remains in circulation and forms part of a circular process.
In addition to sustainable metals, EbbenGouD has also resolutely opted for cultured diamonds to process in jewelry.
These diamonds are formed under extremely high pressure in labs, are 100% equivalent to mined diamonds, are less harmful to the environment and last but not least affordable.
