MATERIALS

In addition to the time-honored ancient beauty of gold and silver, White/Space jewelry is also crafted from solid precious metals because of their durability and recyclability. We re-use the waste materials of our design and production processes. All of the raw precious metals we use are made from recycled material, purchased from green certified refineries that meet the highest standards for ethical sourcing and minimal environmental impact. We also recycle all of our scraps generated in the development and production process of our jewelry. All of our stones are conflict-free, from sources that adhere to the Kimberley Process or from Canadian mines. When we wear recycled materials we honor our own power to adapt, reinvent and flourish. It also reduces our carbon footprint. And by using gems sourced from Canadian mines and Kimberly-certified distributors, we support an honest day’s work.

We also use lab-created stones for some of our colored gemstones to further reduce the impact of mining rare natural gems out of the ground. They are visually and chemically the exactly the same as mined stones, but do not contribute to the land destruction and resource depletion in the way that naturally-mined stones do. We offer our custom bridal clients the option to choose lab-created diamonds, which also are exactly the same as natural diamonds, except they don’t require the environmental damage incurred in mining.
