At Use Less jewelry we value sustainability. An important aspect of sustainability is inclusivity. Inclusivity to us means equality for all people that are involved in the process of growing my brand, creating the products, and all additional services. This goes beyond the internal processes, and extends to customers, creators we work with, and every single person that comes into contact with Use Less Jewelry. Inclusivity to us means being aware where we need to grow, do better and try every single day to improve on these goals. People from all different walks of life, different backgrounds, and different cultures together can create something beautiful and unique.
We are already on our way there, but we are aware that we still have a lot to learn and there are so many more ways in which we have to grow. Though we don’t have all the answers now, please know that we are willing to do our best to keep challenging ourselves, so we can contribute to positive change and creating a new normal.
Plan of action points:
All our 925 Silver jewelry is rhodium-plated to make it more durable. The extra layer of rhodium gives our jewelry its special silver-white shine. Rhodium is considered the rarest and most valuable precious metal in the world – well above Gold or Silver.
Gold Vermeil pieces are 925 Silver, plated with Gold, and meet fine quality standards. Vermeil jewelry requires at least 10-karat gold with a thickness of 1.5 microns. We use recycled 24-karat, the purest Gold available, with a thickness of 2.5-5 microns, because we want to make it last.
Our goldsmiths use only recycled 14-karat Gold for our jewelry. The higher the number of karats, the purer the Gold. But purer is not always better. 24-karat Gold is exceptionally soft, while our 14-karat Gold is still very valuable and a lot more durable.
All our pieces are all nickel-free and allergy friendly.
As you may know, instead of manufacturing large batches, every jewelry item is made-to-order in South Germany, making sure no resources or precious metals are being used without a clear purpose.
Firstly, every single jewelry piece gets casted (meaning liquid sterling silver is poured into a mold!) and after that personally hand-finished by our goldsmiths. The last step is called galvanization: At this stage, your jewelry gets purified in silver or gold (we use recycled gold, melted in Belgium), gloss improved and its durability strengthened, so it is flawless for years to come.
In total, production takes 13-15 business days from beginning to end. As soon as your piece is on its way to you, you'll receive a shipping confirmation with a tracking link. Shipment can take from one to three weeks*.
