Would you like to know where to find recycled wedding rings? If you choose rings for your big day, choosing ones made with recycled metal, helps to avoid unnecessary mining, which harms the planet and native wildlife. There is enough gold and silver already mined, to last for eternity. If you choose rings with stones (say for engagement rings), also look for ones made with recycled materials, to avoid ‘blood diamonds’ (which fund civil wars) and cause other environmental problems. Smoke and Ash Wedding Band is handmade in England from recycled silver, and finished with a high shine. Even the business cards are made from recycled cotton t-shirts.
Of course, you don’t always have to buy a new wedding ring. You could use a relative’s ring or visit an antique shop. And there is no law to say that you have to buy or wear a wedding ring at all! Here are a few nice choices, should you wish to invest in recycled wedding and/or engagement rings.
