OUR ETHICS


When purchasing rings made of precious metals and valuable gemstones, many people don't realise the damaging effect and unethical impact buying new jewellery can have on our world. We, at Antique Ring Boutique, believe that deciding to buy an antique, or second-hand ring is always the most ethical choice you can make!

Help The Planet, And Your Pocket

 

In a climate of which the demand for sustainable production and eco-friendly practices are permanently on the world's agenda, consumer's are opting to put their money into businesses and products that respect this sensibility.

The mining, refining and transportation of highly-prized minerals has been an area of contention for many years; with substantiated claims of human-slavery, exploitation and unsafe working conditions, along with numerous ill-effects on the surrounding environment such as; soil erosion, sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, or contamination of soil or water by emitted chemicals.

Although no vendor of antique jewelry can be completely certain that every piece is free of 'blame' for these issues, reducing the demand for brand-new items contributes to alleviating the ongoing destruction and maltreatment seen today. Giving valuable rings a second-home means you are also cutting the poisonous output created during the production processes, that are often responsible for pumping carbon emissions and other harmful substances into our precious habitat.

In summary, by choosing to buy antique rings, you are part of the change!
