What is substanaibility
Sustainability simply mean to have transparent and responsible sourcing practices in the jewelry supply chain and the use of sustainable materials.
It has a minimal impact on the environment, is not involved with conflict, and gives back to workers by way of fair wages and safe working environments.
Concretely we promote our local suppliers and work with them to supply quality and long lasting products.
To reduce our impact we are proud to be able to propose as an option for our customer the possibility to use 100% recycled materials :
We only use Eco Brass in our products. ECO BRASS is a lead-free (Pb-free) high performance copper alloy with superior properties to currently used alloys. ECO BRASS has high strength, excellent machinability, exceptional wear resistance, good creep properties, and superior corrosion resistance. These properties allow fabricators to decrease component thickness and reduce product weight. Lead-free, lighter and stronger parts can reduce the environmental burden on society
RoHS compliance means that a product has been tested for 10 banned substances by an independent authority, and that the tests confirmed levels of the substances below the RoHS threshold. Under RoHS 3, the latest version of the RoHS directive, the 10 substances restricted are:
Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)
Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP)
Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP)
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP)
Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP)
REACH Compliance is based on the standard Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 Regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals which establishes policy and procedures for collecting and assessing information on the properties and hazards of chemical substances.
There is 1000 chemical substances in the regulation but for jewelry the main concerns are :
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
