Eco-Jewellery and wedding rings

Original jewellery by ArtemisGold mining  is a dirty industry and has devastating environmental damages. It is well known that this process releases highly toxic substances such as cyanide and mercury.  The production of one simple gold ring results in 20 tons of mine waste. It can endanger communities, contaminate drinking water, hurt workers, and destroy pristine environments. If you are determined to be as eco conscious as possible with your wedding plans and outfits, then you could give priority to gems in silver or platinum, recycled jewellery or made using fair trade.
