Comments Off on Glitter Without Guilt: Ethical Rings Created from Recycled Precious Metals

  Finally, wedding rings without the guilt. Modern day couples shouldn’t have to be concerned that their special day and commemorative rings will get overshadowed by the questionable ethics behind the diamond and gold business. Endswell creates solid gold rings for both men and women, made from recycled rose, yellow, or white gold, and hand-cast in the United States. Their designs showcase exquisite details in modern, minimalist forms. Each design’s wax is 3d-printed before being cast in their family-run Chicago foundry, giving them uniquely modern forms balanced with a very human touch. “Beauty in meaning, not in excess.” + Endswell The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
