Oremay Introduces a Gold Recycling Program
Toronto-based, hand-crafted jewelery label Oremé – already a member of the environmental initiative for the planet – wants its unwanted gold jewelery. Why? So it can be melted for future use. The brand just announced its Gold Recycling Program, which asks customers to send in gold jewelery that they no longer use for store credit (based on carat weight); Oremme will then melt the gold to be used in new pieces.
Founder Emily Nolan noted in a press release about the program: “Sona has eternal life, whether it’s a series that broke, earrings that lost their match, or a piece you’re ready to release Are. In addition to our made-to-order model and 1% to the planet commitment, recycling this material is another layer of consciousness that I am excited to offer my customer. “
