reasons to buy estate jewellery
Estate jewelry, also known as vintage or pre-owned jewelry, is considered more sustainable than new jewellery for several reasons:
Reducing the demand for newly mined metals and gemstones: When you buy estate jewelry, you're not contributing to the demand for newly mined metals and gemstones, which often involves environmentally damaging practices such as open-pit mining, deforestation, and water pollution.
Recycling and reusing existing materials: Estate jewelry recycles and reuses existing materials, reducing the need for new resources. By extending the life of previously owned jewelry, estate jewelry helps reduce waste and carbon emissions associated with mining, processing, and transporting new materials.
Supporting ethical practices: Buying estate jewelry supports ethical practices by avoiding the purchase of newly mined materials that could come from unethical or conflict sources. Additionally, you are not contributing to the potential human rights abuses that can occur in the mining industry.
Preserving history and craftsmanship: Estate jewelry often has a unique design and reflects the craftsmanship of a bygone era. By purchasing estate jewelry, you are preserving a piece of history and appreciating the artistry of the past.
Overall, estate jewelry is a more sustainable option compared to new jewelry as it reduces the environmental impact of mining and production, supports ethical practices, and preserves history and craftsmanship.
