Hockley Mint have announced plans for all of its rings to be made from recycled precious metals
British casting specialist and fine jewellery manufacturer, Hockley Mint has announced plans to overhaul its plain wedding ring collection by offering recycled precious metals as standard. Sourced from within the UK, the various alloys of gold, silver and platinum represent another step in the business’ sustainable sourcing strategy. This will be offered alongside the company’s long-standing fairtrade gold option for wedding rings and fine jewellery.
Kevan Jenkinson, the sales director at Hockley Mint, says: “This is another step towards operating more sustainably. We are sourcing our recycled precious metals from within the United Kingdom as part of our ‘Created in the UK’ ethos. So far, we have had positive feedback from our long-standing wedding ring customers, and I hope more retail jewellers will see this as an opportunity to create a point of difference in their bridal offering.”
Future plans to improve sustainability include the installation of solar panels and roof insulation at Hockley Mint’s workshop to help reduce its carbon footprint and use of renewable energies.
