Sourcing

As part of our environmental commitment We put a focus on the sourcing of our materials.

With every ring or piece of jewellery from acredo, Wochenende provide our customers with a certificate card on which the order number and information on alloys and stones are noted. The material of this certificate card of course is bio-PVC. This is biodegradable.

Our alloys are created inhouse from primarily recycled precious metals. The socalled urban mining uses valuable or jewelry items, which are no longer in use. They are recycled and returned to the material cycle. The precious metals coming from this process are of the same high quality as newly mined metals.
