Planning for a green wedding begins with the engagement and wedding rings you choose. Start your new life off on the right foot by considering the environmental and social impact of your rings.
Where does your standard set of wedding rings come from? Most eco-conscious consumers probably don’t even want to think about it. Strip mining and violent third world diamond wars are not very romantic. If supporting products and manufacturing processes that tread lightly on the earth are important to you, you have many choices when choosing wedding rings that symbolize your values, and are the perfect choice for your green wedding.
Recycled Wedding Rings
Eye-catching, gorgeous jewelry does not need to be made from virgin materials. Many green designers are making reused or recycled jewelry to fit the values of the green movement. Precious metals can be melted down and refined to create recycled wedding rings. Using recycled metals instead of virgin material cuts the dirty mining process out of the ecological footprint of the rings.
