At RING BEAR we know our customers are planning their futures and we're committed to making it a greener one. One way RING BEAR is able to do reduce our carbon footprint is by utilizing recycled Gold & Platinum in our collection of men's wedding bands. As recycled metals is a newer concept that wasn't available to previous generations we've broken down some of the common questions couples ask us when researching his wedding band.
What's The Environmental Impact?
In an effort to reduce bringing unnecessary new products into the world, RING BEAR recycles gold and platinum which have already been mined. The recycled metals used to craft RING BEAR gold & platinum wedding bands only use 3% of the energy, 1% of the water & emit 1% of the CO2 traditionally required to mine gold.
Does It Hold the Same Value?
YES! RING BEAR's recycled Gold & Platinum wedding bands have all the same value as newly mined gold and platinum wedding bands.
What About Look?
When using recycled precious metals like Gold & Platinum our men's wedding bands there is no difference in look or feel compared to newly mined gold but you can have the confidence knowing that your ring reduced nearly all of the carbon emissions of new metals.
As you can see utilizing Recycled Gold & Platinum to handcraft our men's wedding bands has all the benefits without any drawbacks. With rings like our Flat or Classic band you get all the features of traditional gold or platinum with much less carbon footprint. As the first carbon neutral mens brand it was important for RING BEAR to offer recycled metals from Day 1. We imagine (& hope) 10 years from now all jewelry will only use recycled metals and are committed to pushing this trend forward!
