Shaping the Future of Jewelry
With conscious effort + deliberate choices, it is very possible for the jewelry industry to reduce its eco-footprint.
The new BOND Hardware Reclaim Program is an extension of our commitment to sustainably made jewelry. It supports the creation of new products without the cost of mining new metals, and is kinder to the environment.
As a brand, before having access to the tools necessary to create ethically produced jewelry, we made plated metal pieces. The plating process is inherently harmful to people + the planet due to the use of harsh chemicals. It is important for us to take responsibility for these older pieces by recycling them properly after their lifecycle.
Beginning in 2017, BOND Hardware has committed to using certified recycled metals including 935 Silver, 10K/18K Gold, as well as sustainably-refined 316L Stainless Steel + 6061 Aluminum. All jewelry is made-to-order + crafted locally in New York City to reduce our carbon footprint in the production process. We encourage repairing older pieces to extend their life + recycling unworn jewelry through our Reclaim Program.
Please join us in creating a more sustainable future.
